If you are venturing out in to trying new styles of denim, like wide leg cropped jeans, but not sure how to style them then this blog is for you. Here are my favorite ways to style wide leg cropped jeans. I love switching up my usual skinny jeans for a different style and I have to say, these cropped wide leg jeans might be my new favorite.
I recently brought in this style to my boutique and honestly, at first, I wasn't sure how I was going to like them. Wide leg jeans have been around for a long time but I am seeing this style a lot more lately so I figured why not give them a try and I'm sure glad I did because I'm obsessed.
What Are Wide Leg Cropped Jeans?
Wide leg cropped jeans are exactly as named, they are typically wide through the hips and legs with a cropped hem that falls above the ankle. They can be high waisted or loose around the waist but I prefer a high-rise look. Wide leg cropped jeans come in a variety of washes and fabrics and are flattering on many different body types. There are so many cute ways to style these wide leg cropped jeans and they are perfect for all seasons.
How To Style Wide Leg Cropped Jeans
When styling wide leg cropped jeans, you want to keep proportion in mind. Since these trending jeans are wider at the leg, I recommend a high-rise pair that will cinch you in at the waist and give you a better defined waistline and a taller appearance. Choosing the right tops, outerwear, and shoes are key to making these jeans look amazing on you.
Choosing the right blouse or top to wear with wide leg cropped jeans
When choosing the right blouse or top to wear with wide leg cropped jeans, continue to think about proportion. Choose tops that are more fitted to balance out the wide leg such as a basic tee, fitted tank top, or even a bodysuit. Tuck it in if blousy and add a belt to emphasize your waistline. If you do not like the look of a tucked in blouse, find blouses that are shorter in length that will hit above your hips.
Choosing the right outerwear to wear with wide leg cropped jeans
When choosing the right jacket to wear with your wide leg cropped jeans, continue to think about proportion. Am I sounding like a broken record yet? Find jackets that are shorter in length to balance out these wide leg jeans. Cropped jackets or bomber jackets are a great option since they hit at or above the waistline. If you want to wear something longer, try rolling up the sleeves a bit to give a chic look and to balance out your outfit.
Choosing the right shoes to wear with wide leg cropped jeans
I bet you know what I'm going to say when choosing the right shoes to wear with wide leg cropped jeans. Yes, proportion is right! There are many shoes that will go amazingly with wide leg cropped jeans. The key is to create a longer leg appearance when wearing wide leg cropped jeans. Whether it be heels, flats, mules, or boots, you'll want to wear shoes with a pointed toe. A pointed toe shoe or slightly rounded toe shoe will make your legs look longer which will help balance out your outfit. Have a little fun with a leopard printed mule. Another great option to wear with wide leg cropped jeans are sandals. I like a barely there sandal that shows more of your foot than the actual sandal. This will also give the appearance of a longer leg. Lastly, my favorite shoes to wear with wide leg cropped jeans are sneakers. A simple sneaker is perfect for a cute and casual look.
