My ultimate tips? Try out the petite sections first—anywhere with an option to choose a shorter leg length saves a lot of hassle. M&S and ASOS impress me the most. But don’t let that stop you shopping elsewhere. Zara and Mango trousers are often much too long in the leg for me, but make friends with your local tailor or download the Sojo app, and your options are endless. Our favourite petite influencer Monikh swears by alterations.
Lastly, if you’re shopping online from non-petite collections, don’t be fooled by the length of the trousers on the (usually very tall) models. I always look for styles that look slightly cropped on them, which means they’ll hit the floor nicely for me.
Keep scrolling for some wide-leg-trouser outfit inspiration, and then shop some of the best styles for petite people.
