cropped jeans

Selena Gomez wore her pair of cut off frayed hem skinny dark blue jean, the J Brand’s Maria High-Rise Super Skinny in After Dark, while out and about in Los Angeles. This is the second time we are seeing her wearing them and she really looks very cool both days!

Some of our readers have questioned if these jeans are really the Maria, and not the J Brand Alana, but I got this confirmed by the J Brand people. The Alana is actually a cropped skinny, but Selena – and quite a few other celebs – prefer to cut off the Maria and leave the hem frayed way above the ankles. This is a cool DIY when you want to crop your jeans where YOU want them to be cropped!

Check out some similar high rise dark blue skinnies here and here, and feel free to crop them at any length that you think will work best for you.

  1. I love JBrand tailoring. In my experience, the Maria is one of the best skinny fits, the back pockets are well placed and sized, and there is no under seat flop over.
    But, that’s not how they look in the picture above. Maybe she has them pulled up too high &/or maybe this wash doesn’t have vertical stretch. Looks like she has them hiked up to the navel.
    In my experience, when the Maria sits at the hip bone, and the fabric has vertical stretch, the back is flawless. Also, the waist band at the hip bone is more flattering than the waist cinch.
    I love the outfit. I often wear simple skinny jeans with a plain white tee and flats.
    I agree, it’s better to crop your own than hope someone else’s crop is going to work. I love it that JBrand makes different lengths. JBrand’s no stretch long wide leg jeans are amazing, too.
