Cropped Denim, Are You In?

Jazmin Crop Straight Leg Jeans CITIZENS OF HUMANITY I’ve received more compliments on these jeans than any other jeans I’ve ever worn. To be honest, it baffles me. You see, I like tight jeans, and I haven’t seen a pair of cropped jeans that don’t give me flashbacks to a pair of cropped capri pants I wore the tar out of not too long ago. Ha! But, I like to follow trends, so during a particularly weak moment after I had been wearing a pair of high waisted, tight, skinny jeans all day and felt sick to my stomach (ok, maybe that’s a little too tight -ha!), I bought these jeans. I wore them out, and low and behold, everyone was asking me where I bought my jeans!

I have come to realize that a cropped, looser fitting jean is a nice piece to have in your jean arsenal. They’re on trend and they’re comfy, but for me, more than anything, they can give my “cutesy” outfit the perfect amount of edge. You know how it’s on trend to mix up your styles? Like, instead of just wearing an all preppy outfit, it’s “cool” to combine preppy with edgy or classic with distressed. Well, these jeans do just that for my closet. For example…

A few styling notes: These jeans came with a cuff sewn at a certain place. I wanted to have the flexibility to cuff them the way I wanted to, just like in the picture above. Also, I went down one size and I wish I had gone down two sizes. I said I liked tight -ha!

    Dang it! I was feeling like I had all of the jeans that I could possibly need hanging in my closet and then you had to go and show me these. Now I want them too…boo hiss. 🙂

        Ok freak thanks so much- need your opinion. I normally wear a 27 or 26- I was going to order a 26, but they don’t have it- do you think a 25 would’ve too tight?i like the way they look in you.

        • Carly Lee March 27, 2017

          I would definitely order the 25. They stretch and they will look great!
