cropped jeans

Judging from Ashley Benson’s facial expressions, she’s either stuck in the middle of a busy New York City street, or trying desperately to hail a cab!

She was out at the East Village, wearing a pair of very trendy cropped straight leg jeans in a beautiful medium blue vintage wash. The jeans have some fading along the knees and a couple of rips, nothing too much of a distressing by what we can see from under Ashley’s coat.

Her insane red boots are something else! They totally take Ashley’s outfit to a higher level, adding some color to her otherwise very monochromatic ensemble. Various shades of beige, brown and khaki, and then the blue jeans would have been a blah look with those boots.

You can buy cropped straight leg jeans from Gap, Shopbop, and at Lord & Taylor.

Frame just came out with their newest Le Original Distressed Jean, with less stretch than their skinnies, but still enough to keep you comfortable, and I have been wearing them a lot now in winter with my Frye combat boots, or with my Superga platform sneakers. Please note that you should up-size these jeans (one size) for a more relaxed fit.

  1. Red boots and shoes are now everywhere and I love them. I haven’t gotten on the bandwagon, and probably I will choose another color to avoid fitting in. I am a big fan of Frame tailoring and fabric but I’m going to pass on these jeans. I don’t like the faux distress, although this pair looks better than most. Also, they have far more great jeans available than I can afford, so I have to be picky.
