Jeans are one of those tricky things, waist height aside, as that's a whole other discussion all together, the length of your jeans can make all the difference to your look. I'm 5'6 and would say i'm a pretty average height, not blessed with super long legs and have to work on them to keep them toned and lean. I find a lot of jeans are designed as if the normal girl is 6", with me left with an awkward amount of hemming. A total disaster when trying to wear them with boots as you're dealt with immediate cankles. The horror!
Enter the cropped jean. Basically anything designed to sit above the ankle but wouldn't be classed in the 'pedal pusher' category. I find this style is quite flattering for my shape and is perfect to wear with a pump or a ballet flat that elongates the exposed ankle/foot.
