These wide leg pants are a perfect example, featuring a wide stretch waistband that’s flat all around (so it doesn’t scream “elastic waist”) and stretch throughout the entire pant. The higher rise waist paired with a cropped wide leg is surprisingly flattering even on petite ladies.
A little more about these wide leg crop pants … they’re called “knit” but are not a sweater knit, more like a medium weight sweatshirt-like material but with a smooth finish and more refined look and feel. They are pull-on style with a fully elastic waist, making them great for WFH but they are structured and polished enough to be worn in a work setting. You can pair this with a simple tee or black turtleneck for WFH, white leather sneakers or slide sandals for running errands, or dress it up like I did here!
Measurements of xxs petite: 12.75″ across the top of the waistband when lying flat, 10″ rise, 23″ inseam.
Side note, I’ve been a bit obsessed with squared necklines and this ribbed tank is a good basic but I wish it came in petites! The overall fit works on me but is on the long side, and likely won’t be fitted on anyone who is even smaller framed. If you’re interested in this style but want something more snug and fitted, check out this tank (see on me here).
A few other Sale Picks in my Closet:
- Azra pumps – have these in multiple colors. So flattering for special events or work outfits!
- Drape front jersey tank – left a longer review on the product page, but this is a basic worth getting in 2 colors! Great standalone tank since it can be worn with a regular bra, also pairs easily under blazers and cardigans like the fan favorite Sophie sweater jacket (also on sale).
- Faux leather pants (my review)
