My ill-fitting jeans are finally trendy!



I'm 5-foot-3, so regular jeans tend to be too long on me. But when I buy petite, my pants wind up looking like this...


...which, according to a press release I received, is not a bad thing. It's trendy.

I recently got an e-mail touting Baby Boot, denim line inspired by '60s British fashions. "It is a little different because it features a slight flare and shorter inseam than the classic boot cut style," the e-mail states. "The Baby Boot hits perfectly at the ankle for flattering look that is both flirty and refined."

In other words, the jeans are too short. On purpose. But they're not short enough to be capris. They're just short enough to make me question whether Hudson, the company that makes the jeans, is touting this "trend" to save on denim.

At any rate, if your ankles could use some fresh air, you can score yourself a pair of Baby Boot jeans here. That's the Notting Hill style, above ($154). They also come in Love Lane, below ($220):


If too-short jeans are in style, then what's next? Last week my co-worker Jonathan pointed out that I was wearing my sweater inside-out. I'm probably just ahead of the curve.
