I have found a new favorite style of denim.
Recently, I rediscovered my favorite pair of boyfriend jeans. I’ve owned them for a while, but I was always styling them exactly how I bought them, with a rolled ankle hem. One day I just decided to unroll them and that was it. Ha! They became my new favorite pair of jeans with a perfectly cropped fit.
The thing I love most about them is the leg style. They have a very straight leg and since they are boyfriend jeans they also have a nice relaxed fit.
Ever since I started living in these jeans, I have been on the hunt to try and find a similar pair. Ya know, so I’m not living in only one pair of jeans. I haven’t had much luck finding another pair though. This particular pair from Zara is the closest I’ve found and while they aren’t perfect, I’m still just as obsessed.
They don’t have as much of a relaxed feel and there might be a little bit of a flare, but I’m just as obsessed with them. If nothing else the bit of flare helps to balance me out.
The thing that really sold me, was again, the perfectly cropped fit.
Now, I am pretty short, so most people would probably warn me to stay away from cropped denim, but for some reason I really like the look.
I think cropped denim can work for anyone though, with the right styling.
If you are on the shorter side, like myself, I would definitely recommend looking for a pair of cropped denim with a higher fit in the waist. Having a higher fit on the waist will help to elongate the legs. I would not recommend pairing cropped denim with anything super long on top, it will only cut you off more. A top that skims the waist of the jeans is best or a half tuck is always a good idea in my book. Lastly, heels. Always with the heels to help elongate. Ankle strap is always my go-to because there isn’t much shoe there. The less bulkiness the better!
Are you guys into the style of denim?
