micro bootcut jeans

Don’t be afraid to show off your socks. Pair a dainty anklet sock with utilitarian boots.

With the cropped jeans trend going on very strong, I sometimes look for clues of how to pair them in “real” winter cold life! The street styles shown here are a good beginning for an inspiration. But of course, you should be doing your own thing, and change the outfit according to your personal style AND necessity. Like no way, I could be wearing flats without socks right now – so here you go! Just add a pair of fun printed socks with your flats and rock your cropped jeans! Yeah, I know that you guys all know by now that I am a sock fetish LOL!

And YASSSSS, my favorite look, of course, the micro-bootcut jeans shown above! I’d wear them with my funky patterned socks and Eytys sneakers, but I’d change the jacket for a heavy black oversized vintage leather coat that I have had for years!

You can buy cropped jeans at Nordstrom and at Shopbop.

mom's jeans

Combine disco boots with a colorblock coat.

micro flare jeans

Pair with boots that come to calf height, especially when you want to stay warm. A quilted olive coat and red hoodie supply some real coziness to this wintry look.

cropped fringe jeans

Combine hard and soft with a baby pink sweater and grunge low-rise jeans. A leather jacket and embellished black booties are perfect to top off the outfit.

unfinished hem jeans
Work some 70s elements into an outfit with a long glittering top and a very warm coat, of course (not shown here!)

straight leg jeans

Team Gucci denim with Coach plaid for a classic American style. Straight-legged cropped jeans show just enough skin to keep the look fresh.

cropped jeans

Office Appropriate – give your cropped denim a workplace twist with a double-breasted blazer and sleek flats.


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the black fringe jeans (who made them?), but nothing else about that outfit!
    I’m in general tired of cropped jeans, as they are the norm and they are conformist standardized at 26″ inseams, which are unflattering on most people 5’7″ and up. Everyone has a different place on the ankle or shin where a crop looks great.
