The Absolute Best Petite Skinny Jean, Says The Internet

Isn't it the norm that every pair of skinny jeans you buy fits you like a glove? It's like each pair was made just for you: It flatters your bum and the hem hits perfectly at your ankle. We don't even have to try. We hate to burst your bubble, but that's not exactly reality. In fact, while skinny jeans have become a serious denim staple, the hunt for the perfect pair hasn't exactly gotten much easier. Just ask anyone who shops in the petites department and finds several inches of extra fabric at the bottom of nearly every pair of pants they try on.
More often than not, if you're a lady on the shorter side, jeans shopping can feel more like settling for the lesser of two evils too-long pants. And, because you've probably already tried on more pairs than you could possibly ever wear, we turned to Rank & Style to help us make the search a bit smoother. The site, which curates the best-of-the-best shopping buys based on reviews and editorial mentions, has placed Paige Denim's 'Verdugo' Skinny Ankle Jeans at the top of the list.
Citing this pair as the No. 1 pick among editors, Rank & Style may not have solved all our petite problems. But, if they could spare us a few trips to the tailor, we'd consider that a small victory (pun intended). Check out all the washes of the Paige pairs ahead.
