Anyone who considers themselves to have a petite frame (aka 5’2” and under) knows that finding pieces that fit well can often feel more like a chore rather than an enjoyable shopping experience. While the number of designers catering to the shorter set of fashion girls is continually getting higher, it still isn’t as mainstream as we’d like. That said, there are some brands that are a short girl’s go-to when it comes to the coolest and most practical fashion pieces, one of which we’d like to focus on today: leggings.
There are a number of wardrobe staples that every woman—no matter her height—should have, and a pair of leggings is definitely one of them. Whether you’re planning to lounge around your house all day in complete comfort or want a solid alternative to trousers, leggings are one of those tried-and-true articles of clothing we just can’t quit. However, the only way to ensure leggings serve their practical and functional purpose is to make sure they fit. That’s where we come in. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best leggings for petite frames so you can have your cake and eat it too.
