cropped jeans

Selena Gomez is showing us that sometimes, you just need to reach for your trusty old skinny jeans. Yes, we know: it seems that flares and mom jeans are everywhere right now, but skinnies aren’t dead, so don’t store yours quite yet!

Selena was spotted out and about in J Brand’s high-rise Maria jean while out in Los Angeles on Wednesday. She paired her dark-wash denim with a white tank from Isabel Marant, a Coach varsity jacket, and strappy Gianvito Rossi heels.

She wore the look to attend an after-school program called “Step Up”, that encourages girls to believe that they have the capability to do anything they set their mind to,” she explained on Instagram. Her visit was in partnership with Instagram, as the platform celebrated World Kindness Day.

If you’re obsessed with Selena’s look and want to try it yourself this weekend, grab your favorite pair of dark skinnies and take the scissors to the hem. You can truly take a walk in Selena’s shoes … er, jeans. Or, you can also buy ready made high waisted cropped jeans with frayed hems here and here.

  1. She looks adorable. Unless she’s quite tall or cropped these herself, I think this is the Alana jean, which is the cropped version of the Maria. The Maria / Alana tailoring is amazing for women with round seats, narrow upper thighs and small bones. There is nothing run of the mill about a perfectly cut, perfectly sized skinny jean JBrand has that nailed. I don’t love all of their fabrics. I LOVE their stretch denim that stretches evenly in all directions. The brand should provide more info about that innovation on their site and advert. The Maria/Alana rise is just right and doesn’t corset in the waist. Of course there is no place to hide in skinny jeans. No matter what color you buy, the lower body is on display and attracting attention. Skinny jeans are for showing off, not for fitting in. I hate to see them with high heels, but she still looks great.
