dress pants for petites

  1. I just started a job where jeans are not an option... I've been going crazy trying to find dress pants that actually fit that aren't too expensive... I don't want to pay more than $200, because I need quit a few of them (I only own 2 at the moment) I'm 5'5 and 105 lbs... I find that if they fit around the waist, they look funny around my ass and thighs (they are too loose)... Any suggestions...?? TIA
     
  2. You could try Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, or J. Crew. They all carry petites. What is your inseam? A lot of petites say they are for 5'4" and under. I think the petites at these places typically have a 30" inseam. J. Crew seems to be slimmer through the hips, so that might help with your problem.
     
  3. I say just buy whatever you like on sale and then have them hemmed, it's only $10 and it'll be the exact length you want.
