If you would’ve told me a few years ago that flared denim was going to make a comeback, I’d give myself a headache from how far back my eyes would roll. Needless to say, the trend took over the streets of NYC and I fell for it, hard. As a tall girl (I’m 6ft tall) I can appreciate cropped denim because I don’t have to worry about them being long enough. No matter how cropped they are, ISSA LOOK regardless!
With that being said, it did take me sometime to figure out how to style these. Before I took the plunge and purchased this pair, the term ‘high-waters’ kept echoing in my mind. I got over it real quick once I realized that my middle school bullies no longer phase me. I decided to style them with a bodysuit that contours my shape to give my jeans the spotlight. A turtleneck or cable knit sweater would definitely give these jeans a more polished look if that’s what you’re going for. Also, you can’t really tell in the photos but I wore socks with my boots because Winter. As the weather gets warmer I can definitely see myself pairing these with loafers or a pair of slingback heels.
Needless to say, I think having 1 or 2 pairs of these in your closet wouldn’t hurt. Just like any other trend, these might add some versatility to your style in the moment but who knows how long this trend might last. What are your thoughts on cropped flared denim? Do you think this trend will stick around a while longer? Let me know your thoughts!
