Joe’s Mia Flares: A Review (For Both Petite And Tall)


Joe’s Jeans have skyrocketed to one of our favorite denim brands, especially the Joe’s Jeans Mia flare styles.

I first mentioned them here, with a camisole and cropped jacket, and here, as one of my best purchases last season.

The Mia jeans have seriously become some of my most-worn jeans for the past nine months, and I was so excited when Gwen, who is way taller than me, told me she has them too. Of course, we needed to do something together.

Are The Joe’s Mia Flare Jeans Worth It? A Tall + Petite Comparison

So, in this review video, we’re standing side by side wearing the same Joe’s Mia jeans to show you how they look on our bodies — tall and petite — going through everything, including the material, rise and the big question: Are they worth it?

I have to say that while I do love wearing mine with bodysuits, I don’t particularly like them with the one in this video — last-minute packing confusion. I prefer to wear them with loose crop tops, higher-neck bodysuits and camisoles.

Where To Buy Joe’s Mia Flare Jeans

  • Bloomingdale’s: Currently on sale!!!! This is the exact wash that’s just over $160.
  • Nordstrom: Carries most washes and will have them on sale here and there. That’s how I got mine.
  • Zappos: Also has a big selection of washes, and most times will have them in stock even if they’re sold out at other retailers.
  • Saks: I always use Saks Special Sales to get my favorite designer jeans.

More washes: The best about these flare jeans is the several washes and materials they come in. Take a look:


Julieta and Gwen

Tall girl Gwen & petite queen Julieta are trying Joe's Jeans Mia flares & sharing alll their thoughts. Fit, feel, rise & the big Q: Are they worth it?


  1. Joes are the only brand I return to over and over. Consistent fit and quality and sizing is nearly always the same across fits and washes. Fell in love with the brand in 2004 and throughout style changes they’ve remained my #1. I have a thick middle, small hips and booty, muscular thighs and they’re always so flattering and never uncomfortable.

  2. Would you consider doing a post on how to style these with different shoes for summer? Booties seem easier but summer sandals seem harder for some reason! Thank you!

    • Yes, I would. In the meantime, this is what I did last year. I wore sandals with a stacked heel – 1-2″ works if they’re not too long. I cropped mine to wear with the same heel in boots, so it works. I also see them working with platform or clog sandals.
