Cropped Denim: The New “It” Thing

Whether you like it or not, cropped denim is the new “it” thing. It is amazing how much a fashion staple like blue jeans evolve over time. Sometimes for better and sometimes for worse. So how do you wear this style? Allow me to explain.

Start with Black

When styled correctly, cropped denim can be very flattering. But, if you are on the fence about this new trend, start with basic black! Black jeans are slimming, flattering, and easy to style. I opted for a fringe hem pair.

Wear Booties

Take advantage of the opportunity to show off your new booties…without cuffing your jeans! Honestly, that is what I am the most excited about. I do not remember the last time I bought a pair of pants without having to hem them. I bought this embroidered bootie from Sole Society and receive endless compliments every time I wear it. It would be a shame to hide shoes like this underneath full length flare leg pants!

Shake things up

When you are experimenting with a new style, don’t be afraid to shake things up a bit. I accomplished this with accessories and a plaid jacket. Statement belts are also trending. You have probably already noticed your favorite fashionistas buckling up in chunky belts. Hop on the bandwagon! Finally, Consider topping your ensemble with a contrasting jacket or coat. Mixing prints is a great way to jazz things up and a black and white pattern is a safe choice.
