the perfect pair of white jeans for petite women by Pistola

#1 | Pistola Wide Leg Jeans

If you’re an email subscriber, you might recognize these white Pistola jeans. They’ve been a best seller for us the past TWO months and I completely understand why. The wide-leg silhouette combined with the super high 13” rise makes these jeans incredibly flattering. The fit is a little baggier and relaxed but not too baggy. The fabric has a bit of stretch, but you still feel secure, and the fabric isn’t see-through…an important factor in finding the perfect white jeans! There are no front pockets, so you don’t need to worry about pocket linings showing through or extra fabric budging around the hips. I also love that the smooth front adds to the flattering fit. They have a 27” inseam, which is perfect on me (I’m 5”4’) and I can wear these jeans with heels and flats…a big win. I have on a pair of raffia pumps by Sam Edelman, but I’ve worn these with even higher platforms and flat sandals. Oh, and the best part?? They are under $150!


Paige Jacket

I paired the white jeans with a simple ribbed white tank by Splendid and a chic beige jacket by Paige. This jacket was another best seller a few months ago and it’s SO good. I love the cropped fit, luxe gold buttons, and edgy raw hem. It’s lightweight and breathable so you’ll be able to wear it into the warmer months on those cooler nights. If you live in a hot climate (talkin’ to you Texas, Florida and Arizona ladies) you can still wear this chic third layer. When I lived in Texas, I always had a jacket with me to deal with the freezing cold AC inside restaurants, shops, etc. (yes, even in July).


#2 | Mother Ankle Bootcut Jeans

If you’re looking for a pair of white jeans with a less baggy and more streamlined fit, consider a pair of bootcut jeans. This pair by Mother has been one of my favorite pairs of white jeans for years. Mother is a wonderful, high-quality denim brand and I actually own this Hustler style in multiple colors…that’s how good they are! They have a raw hem, flattering high rise (11”), and are not see-through. The denim is very high-quality and has a good amount of stretch. These also have a 27” inseam, which is such a nice length for petites – even if you are extra petite. I styled them with a pair of platform heels and the same white tank and Paige jacket. You could wear this look to dinner or drinks with friends for a casual, simple summer look that’s chic and stylish.

#3 | DL1961 Ankle Bootcut Jeans

Next up is a pair of DL1961 white jeans that are very similar to the Mother jeans above, with a few key differences. This pair is also frayed, but the hemline has a cool angled line that adds a touch of edge and drama. They also do NOT have front pockets, so you get that streamlined, flattering look in the front. The denim is very stretchy but not so much so that you won’t feel secure (and, they retain their shape). The inseam is also 27” and I have them on with a pair of Valentino block heels, but I’ve worn these with higher heels, flats, and sneakers.

#4 | Mother Wide Leg Jeans

This is another quality pair of jeans by Mother, but these have a wider leg. I love that they are fitted through the hips but baggier through the legs, a very on-trend denim silhouette at the moment. These have a 29.5” inseam so on me, they go almost to the floor and require a small heel or platform. I’m wearing them with a pair of See by Chloe platform sneakers, and you can see that they hit about 1-2” off the ground. Since these have a raw hem, you can cut them yourself if that length doesn’t work for you and/or if you want to wear them with flats. These are meant to be “petite” jeans so the rise is a bit shorter – FYI.


#5 | Cinq à Sept Benji Wide Leg Jeans

I saved the trendiest (and maybe my favorite) pair of white jeans for last. If you already have your basic white jeans covered and you’re looking for something interesting to refresh your white jeans outfits, these Cinq à Sept are the answer! I love the flattering wide leg, cool button front, patch pockets, and fun cuffed detail. They have an 11” rise and are structured but comfortable denim fabric. They have a 28.5” inseam AND you can’t undo the cuff, so if you are taller just keep that in mind. I have on a pair of P448 sneakers, but I can’t wait to wear these modern jeans with heels and flats this summer.


Cinq à Sept Blazer

I styled the white jeans with the same ribbed tank and a gorgeous denim Cinq à Sept blazer. It has ruched sleeves, so you don’t have to worry about pushing your sleeves up all day…they stay in place and add an extra style detail to the look. The contrasting stitching and denim material make the blazer feel more casual and cooler. This is such a fun look I could see wearing to dinner, coffee, lunch, shopping, running errands, etc. It’s a great, everyday casual look that can easily transition to different occasions this summer with a few accessory swaps.

STYLE TIP: You can keep your legs looking longer by wearing a 3rd layer open vs. closed.
