Today I’m styling the newest addition to my denim wardrobe: wide leg crop jeans. In case you’re wondering what to wear with them, how about a colorful floral top?
Have you found a pair of wide leg jeans that suit your shape? Or decided that this look just isn’t for you? While I’ve been admiring this look, I must admit that I have shopped and shopped to find the right pair for me. Being on the shorter side, they had to be cropped. And not just a regular size crop, but a petite size crop length. If I buy any other regular size cropped pants, they turn out to be ankle length and oddly proportioned for me. Can you say, short little fireplug? Haha! My tall friends tell me the same is true for them, and they have to shop for the right brand and fit in tall sizes. Can anyone relate?
I was so excited to finally find this pair, and I couldn’t be happier. They’ll get lots of use all the way through fall!
The Wide Leg Crop Jeans
This pair of jeans is from Madewell. I’ve picked up Madewell pieces (their tees are fantastic!) before from Nordstrom but found these only on their website. As soon as I touched the soft denim, I knew I’d love them. They slipped on easily and are a bit roomy–not just in the wide part of the legs! Lol! Totally comfortable.
The medium wash is classic for summer style, and the medium weight is just right.
Do you worry about how things look from the rear? I spent SO many years feeling self-conscious about having a booty. Hey, if Kim Kardashian can flaunt hers, why can’t we?
The Floral Tops
Colorful florals always look amazing with denim and these cute cotton blouses are no exception. This beautiful print has so many vibrant colors that would look great with lots of pieces for summer. I can see it with a white denim skirt, white or denim shorts, white or navy slacks, and it would look great with olive green! Colored jeans would also be a nice look with this top for summer.
The above top is from Ethyl Clothing. If you’ve been following me for a while, you may remember that I styled some items from Bali when we went on our cruise to Australia in December. (See the post here: Scenes from Bali in Ethyl Clothing.) I talked about the quality of their clothing, and that their website doesn’t do the clothes justice. Still true!
The second top, also from Ethyl Clothing, is a beautiful floral top with bell sleeves. Details like the bell sleeves trimmed in lace and the gathered neckline make this top unique. You won’t see these tops anywhere else! A definite plus!
For both outfits, I wore my platform wedge espadrilles by Franco Sarto. These have become my favorite pair for summer as they are so comfy and easy to wear–they fasten with velcro which leaves a clean line and makes them a snap to put on! They provide a bit of height without making me worry I might fall off my shoes! (Those of you who wore the tall platforms in the ’70s know exactly what I mean! Lol!)
A round woven tote bag is the height of fashion right now and this one is big enough to hold all your essentials. You can also wear it as a shoulder bag. It comes in four colors, but I find the white trim a good choice with my outfits. The striped clutch bag is an older find that I can style with so many things!
While there are belt loops, I didn’t add a belt for these outfits. But you could definitely change the look with a stylish or colorful one.
Wide leg crop jeans would, of course, look super cute with a white tee and sneakers for the perfect casual look too!
Have you tried to find wide leg crop jeans and couldn’t find a pair to suit you? Give these a try. And pull out–or refresh–your collection of floral tops to style with crop jeans. It’s a perfect look for spring and summer.
