cropped jeans

Lily Collins was arriving at LAX in a cool double denim outfit.

She wore a pair of RN fashionably cropped microflares with an, also RN, uber-fashionable oversized denim jacket, a really nice double denim outfit. And it’s so cool to see a pair of “good old” Keds sneakers again! Been a while…

The denim jacket is from Mother, the Drifer Denim Jacket in Gypsy and the coolest thing about it is that it has some stretch. I love denim jackets with stretch as they make it so much easier to move. Like tying up your ponytail, or donning your sunglasses… I am sure you know what I mean!

As for the jeans, they are from Frame, the Le Crop Mini Boot Jeans in Remsen. The fit looks great, and I also love that they are a lower waist. But I am not too crazy about this wash. It is a dark wash, and the whiskering and fading along the upper legs and around the crotch look so totally artificial. I would have preferred a clean dark wash, or a “logically” distressed wash.

Check out some other options of cropped flares in a darker wash here.

And while you’re at it – the word is that the distressed and ripped denim will kind of “fade out” for the coming fall and winter season, and there will be a lot of clean dark washes instead. I can confirm that this is also what I have noted in my press previews for F/W ’17/18.
