Holiday Wishlist: Pants that fit

Finding pants that fit short frames are tough! Here are my favorite shops for pants that complete my Holiday wishlist:

1) Pajama Pants – Aerie, $35 and BOGO Free!

Who doesn’t love a cute pair of holiday PJs!? Good news! Aerie now offers short sizes in their sleepwear pants, and their jogger pants are super cute too! Check it out before they sell out!

Not so amazing (too long) Forever 21, A&F, American Eagle, Department Stores

2) Jeans – American Eagle $24+, Abercrombie & Fitch $39 and Hollister $25

Jeans are a fashion staple. Get a fresh pair or stop by these stores to try them on in short sizes! Or, order online as all of these stores have a great return policy (keep your receipt)!

My favorite are the American Eagle Lycra jeans- they’re stretchy and super comfortable!

Not so amazing (too long): Forever 21, H&M

3) Chinos – Loft $35

Chinos in short sizes are hard to find but these these chinos are amazing! These chinos from the Loft pair well for business casual and your everyday wear. They wash without fading and last long.  Loft is a store that’s overlooked by women in their 20’s but it’s truly a great store for short sizes (and they VERY frequently have 40-50% off)!

Not so amazing (too long): H&M (although if you can don’t mind rolling them up, they’re super cute and for $35)

4) Dress Pants – Banana Republic $40+, Express $35+,  Loft $35+, New York & Company $20+

Yes, Banana Republic can be expensive but you should never shop there if there isn’t a sale or if you don’t have coupons (because there are ALWAYS sales and coupons). Also, although pricey I will say the quality of their dress pants, skirts and dresses last long with proper care. Additionally, if you open a Banana Card you can earn a lot of points that can get ALOT of great rewards (I’ve gotten a $40 off $40 reward one time so I got 3 petite pants (that had an awesome sale)  for $60)! 2 years later and still running stron

Anyways, the Sloan fit dress pants at BR are my favorite fit for anyone looking for a more modern skinny fit. The Loft dress pants can be a hit or miss so try on first as their fits vary greatly!

Express has a lot of great fits for every body shape to complement you well! It’s also another one of those stores you never pay full price for since they always have coupons online or sales going on! The Columnist fit is my favorite at Express.

So, I believe I’ve covered every type of pants that are available in short sizes and are my favorites! 🙂 Ladies, did I  miss your favorite store? Please share your finds and thoughts below!
