Perfect (Petite!) Jeans

On a good day I'm 5'4" in flats, so I am accustomed to spending a lot of time and money at the tailor getting my pants, skirts, and jackets hemmed and altered. Jeans are often difficult for me because the knees don’t hit where they should or the flare, boot cut, or tapering at the hem does not end up where it should. On top of that, jeans are a tricky fit in the waist and hip, too.

The Broome Street Jeans from Kate Spade are probably the most perfect pair of jeans I have ever owned. The fit is incredible and the fabric is stretchy, yet retains its shape all day. According to Kate Spade's website, they "Worked with the last remaining denim mill in the United States. It's one of the oldest, and most prestigious, in the world. The exclusive material conforms to the body without compromising shape. We're wearing ours with everything from four-pocket jackets and flats in the office to swingy tops and sky-high heels after hours."

The fit of the Broome Street Jeans is so perfect and sizing ran slightly larger than other premium denim brands. I cuffed the hem of the jeans just a little bit and was delighted to see that the inside stitching is bright pink!

The jeans were confortable all day while touring in Mexico City. Paired with a Lilly sleeveless top and cardigan, it's perfect for Mexico's variable climate.

What are your favorite jeans?


P.S. I was not compensated by Kate Spade to write this post. I just fell in love with these jeans and wanted to share this great find with you.


  1. I'm only 5'1 and always on the hunt for good jeans! I will have to check these out!

  2. I will have to try them on next time! I do love the MiH jeans that we carry. The oslo are great for a petite person.

  3. I am also petite and am oh too familiar with getting pants hemmed! I love that pink stitching! xx

  4. Those jeans look adorable with the cuff.
    I'm 5'1 and have the worst time with jeans too. I usually try to find jeans with a cropped leg, because they will hit me right where I want them too.

  5. Just discovered these jeans and purchased a blue and black pair! Love the hem with the pink seams, very chick from day to night!
