cropped flare jeans

Alicia Vikander was hanging out in London at the 34 Mayfair Restaurant.

She was dressed in a pair of the latest trend jeans – high-waisted cropped micro-flare with a frayed hem, but no other distressing or rips.

I love seeing a lot of less rips and destruction in denim for a change. Somehow we all are suffering from an overdose of rips and holes in our jeans, so these are a super welcome and very edgy way out.

BUT do not toss your old ripped babies, thought, they are still running strong and ain’t going anywhere. Just if you are thinking of a new addition to your denim wardrobe, you should definitely consider all above mentioned details when choosing a pair. And most important, no stretch, or at the most 2% stretch, is mandatory!

Here are a few very cool ones, similar to those Alicia is wearing, for you to consider: Frame Rigid Re-Release Le Original Skinny Jeans (these are actually not really skinny, but fitted at the waist and hips and then more relaxed at the legs), Citizens of Humanity the Dree crop, and AGOLDE High Rise Crop Kick Flare Jeans (these do have 1% stretch).

  1. I don’t like the faux fade. In the top picture one can see that the fabric seems to have bagged out a bit exaggerating the shape of her thighs which appear to be leaner on the top 2/3 of the thigh than they are at the lower thigh. Maybe from weight gain after lipo or maybe it wasn’t done properly to begin with. She would be better off one size up. Micro flares don’t have to be tight. I like the length. I wish micro flares would come in more lengths so that tall women could have a flattering length too.
