If you're ready to branch out from skinny jeans, a pair of wide leg crops may be your next favorite denim style! Give those calves some breathing room this spring in any of these on-trend transitional outfits.
Five Ways To Wear Cropped Wide Leg Jeans
This style is more flattering than many women think! Consider how narrow your waist will look with more volume on the bottom half of your body. I recommend keeping the waist and hips fitted and aiming for the hem to hit about 2" above the ankle bone (or just below where your calf muscle widens).
Textured Blouse + Gold/Cork Accessories
A solid color is anything but boring when it features fun textured details. A cork clutch and heeled sandals with gold accents are perfect for a warm weather look.
Puff Sleeve Top + Platform Sandals
To really whittle your waist, consider some volume at your shoulders. A v-neck helps with this illusion as well. A bit of a platform on a sandal will literally add inches to your leg line helping your figure appear longer and leaner.
Sweater Tank + Metallic Flats
A chunky knit sleeveless sweater looks great front tucked into some high rise crops and skims over any areas you'd rather conceal on your top half. Pick a metallic shine that flatters your skin tone to create an extra long leg line.
Graphic Tee + Low Cut Casual Sneakers
A standard combo in my mom uniform, a front-tucked graphic tank keeps the leg line long while the low cut casual sneakers (NOT the kind you wear to workout) show off a bit more ankle. A sneaker with a bit of a platform would look great too!
Striped Top + Woven Mules
The defined ruffle peplum helps to define a high waist without the need to tuck - a great option for those wanting to conceal the lower tummy area. Stripes and woven textured flats create a classic nautical feel that works so well for warmer weather. Espadrille loafers would be another great option.
Do you have a favorite look? Are you encouraged to give non-skinny jeans a try or have you already taken the leap to wide legs?
