Style Guide: How to Style Short Torso Long Legs Body Type

Style Guide: How to Style Short Torso Long Legs Body Type

Finding the right denim for your body proportions is important for accentuating your best features. Having a body type with long legs and a short torso means finding a jean style that helps balance to make your body shape look and feel amazing. For petite women with short torso lengths and longer legs, it’s important to find the right leg length to flatter your natural waistline. If you are not a short woman, you may need clothes with a longer inseam, and Democracy Clothing is here with stylish options for every frame size! 


Whether you’re seeking women’s tall jeans or petite jeans, let’s dive into some styling tips to make your shorter torso and longer legs look incredible! 


Low-Waisted Jeans To Create A Longer Torso

Shopping for pants, jeans, and trousers for your height and body size is important to make sure you dress to look and feel your best. With midrise to low waisted jeans like our "Ab"solution® Itty Bitty Boot Jean, you can avoid highlighting a short waist and extend your upper body. This style is great for balancing out your body shape by lowering the horizontal line of your waist.  


Here are some styling tips for your low waisted jeans to create a longer torso:


  • Shoes: Ankle boots and sneakers are a great option for low waist jeans that sit on your hips. This can create the illusion of shorter legs and make the vertical line of your legs look less highlighted than it would with pumps or heels.  
  • Tops: Finding tops for petite dressing is a great way to find a good fit for your shorter torso. While those with shorter legs, you’d want to do the opposite but play to your strengths by styling your shorter stem with low-waisted jeans and crop tops.

This way you can create the illusion of long arms and avoid a squat silhouette. These long inseam pants have a long inseam and are available in sizes 0-16.  


Here’s how to style the trendy girlfriend jeans for long legs and a short torso:
