Cropped Jeans: The Petite Girl’s Favorite Fashion Hack

Being petite and being creative go hand in hand. Not necessarily in an artsy fashion…rather in a resourceful fashion. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve used double-side tape for a quick hem job, or temporarily shortened the straps on a cami with safety pins. Moral of the story: a petite girl has gotta do what a petite girl has gotta do. While it seems SO obvious that cropped pants would solve the length issue for people like me, the reality of it is that cropped pants simply did not exist in the past. Well, crying over spilled milk is not going to get us anywhere. Today I’m offering you a solution to your #shortpeopleproblems. Buy yourself cropped jeans, and buy yourself a lot of ’em!

Today we showcase cropped flare jeans from Charlotte Russe. They are just as functional as they are cute. Featuring a mid-rise waist and stretch fabric design, these cropped jeans are suitable for breakfast or happy hour. I know I am not the only woman who sometimes “fluffs up” her jeans in the dryer mid-wear. Well, I am happy to report that they did not stretch out or bag at the knees after breakfast or the bar. I am not sure that I can say more about a pair of cropped jeans that are under $50 other than, you should buy them!

So how do you style cropped jeans, you may ask? The answer is rather simple: the same way you dress a full length pair! With the embroidery craze in full affect, consider topping your fall ensemble with an embellished item like this. This moto style jacket effortlessly adds a feminine touch to your edgy ensemble. I took it one step further by incorporating a purple peplum top and gold-trim booties. How do you style your cropped denim? I would love to hear your ideas!
