Cropped jeans, when paired with basics can instantly bring a chic vibe to your look and elevate your wardrobe. I avoided this particular style for awhile, but now I am completely in love with this look! I wanted to show some ideas for how to style cropped jeans, particularly with women over 40 in mind. The jeans I’m wearing are high waisted and have a slight flare and they are incredibly comfortable! They have a little bit of stretch to them, but I’m wearing my normal size and they fit great.

Sweater, Booties, Chic Bag

One of my favorite ways to style cropped jeans is with a cashmere turtleneck sweater, booties and an interesting bag. My cashmere is on repeat all winter long and these basics often go on sale here.

The sweater, booties, jacket and cropped jeans are all true to size (but size up one in the bootie if you want to wear thick socks with them). My dumpling bag can be found here, it’s good quality and I love the fresh shape.

With Flats

It doesn’t get much more effortless than this! I would also style these the same way with a good pair of loafers like these.A front tucked striped shirt with a vest and these ballet flats give a pair of cropped jeans that little French girl vibe. If you need a good, well made, comfortable black flat try these. I’ve had mine for years and they are a closet staple. (Extra 50% off right now with Code: FRIDAY)

White Button Down, Camel Coat and Sneakers

Comfortable but so pulled together with a simple white button down, tied at the waist to give you some shape. When paired with trendy sneakers and a classic overcoat you can’t miss! My tote bag is vegan leather and it’s the one you always see me travel with. It takes a beating and always looks great. Comes in lots of other colors and is monogram-able here.

Cropped jeans will always make the most of whatever shoes you wear and they look fabulous when styled with classic pumps or sling backs. And you can never go wrong with Chanel inspired cap toe shoes.
