Pegged jeans for the hip-endowed


Forever 21 top (similar) + belt (similar), Banana Republic skinny jeans, Nordstrom Rack wedges (old but in love with these)

Call me crazy but I think this outfit makes me look taller and leaner. Something about the tight jeans with the wedges and top knot makes me look 6 feet tall in these pictures. “Pegging” my jeans, really just rolling up skinny jeans, was something I always thought was reserved for the ultra thin. The tapering at the bottom combined with the tight fit felt like it would be unflattering. But lo and behold, I tried and by following a few simple tips, this look can work for anyone.



1. Combine the tapered bottom with a top that has some definition but also some breeziness. This mint top defined my waist but still felt etherial and not as harsh as the pegged bottom. Other tops that could work here and here.

2. Be sure the top doesn’t hit lower than your upper hip. Picking a tunic length or longer top will just shorten your legs even more than this style already does. Stick with shorter tops, or even tuck in a top to keep the legs looking as long as possible.


3. Hike yourself up! In heels of course. Some form of heel or wedge always makes me feel taller and leaner. And when the wedge or heel is nude, double leg lengthening!


Are you a fan of pegged jeans? I’d love to see how you style them!

      Thanks Rachel! I got it on sale during Forever 21’s last sale for only $12. Can’t beat that 😉

  • Love the look. I cant wait to give it a try. I used to stir away from skinny jeans afraid it wouldn’t work out. But you are right its all about finding a nice balance.

      Thank you Rosely. I was so surprised I loved this look as well. Only until I started this blog did I start to experiment with different jean shapes. I have another couple of posts about skinny jeans + pearshaped bodies. Be sure to check through the archives or search for those!

  • I really like this outfit! Everything flows so nicely together and I adore wedge heels on any day!
    I love your blog, I found it on Lauren Conrad’s site!

      Thanks Deanna! Wedges are my favorite. I fall over pretty much every time I wear heels so wedges save me a ton 😉 Thank you for the love! xo

    I peg my jeans all the time, they give edge/romance/nerdy-ness to my outfits, normally depending on what shoes I am wearing. Forget these silly rules, I say, we can look good doing whatever we want as long as we have confidence.
