Want to know what jean length you should get?  Here’s a simple guide to finding the perfect jean length for you.

Finding the perfect length of jeans can be difficult, especially when shopping online, but I’m here to help you.  Whether you’re petite, tall, or somewhere in between, I hope this guide helps you find the perfect jeans for your height.  

Let’s start out with the most important measurement which is inseam.  What is inseam you ask?  When measuring jeans, inseam is the measurement between the crotch and the end of the leg opening.  When measuring your own inseam, measure the distance between the crotch and just below your ankle.  You don’t want to measure to the floor because this will cause the length to be too long. Of course, the easiest way to find your ideal inseam is to measure a pair of jeans you already own that you love the length on.

Once you know your inseam, it is important to know that the style of jeans and the style of shoes you wear with them will affect your desired inseam.  For example, do you like to wear heels with flared jeans or do you prefer to wear them with a sneaker?  Your shoes will vary in height so it is important to keep that in mind when shopping for jeans.

Here is a simple guide to follow based on height and jean style.
