What with all the cropped and frayed hem jeans out there, we have received lots of e-mails from our readers asking if it was okay to wear any jean-style cropped, cut-off, and/or with unfinished hems. Or should we actually do a longer inseam.
We have broken down the most popular denim trends right now and added our personal view about cropped x regular inseam. And we have included an example for each possibility so you can better visualize what we are talking about.
Today it’s all about the skinnies and straight legs, and we’re going to continue tomorrow with more “how-to’s”.
Hope this helps and let us know if you have any more doubts or anything to add to our editorial:-)
Literally anything goes – from below the knee capris, to regular and even scrunched up at the ankle length. It all depends on your very own personal preference.
Cropped Skinny Jeans
Regular Length Skinny Jeans
Straight leg jeans:
Preferably these should be made of rigid 100% cotton denim, or no more that 1% Elastane in order to keep the style of a straight leg. And we believe that the shortest you should wear the straights are an ankle length. But a regular length is the best way to keep a straight leg actually straight. Now, we’ve seen lots of over-long options as well, like the most popular 90’s Jeans, or the Dad Jeans, that tend to be slouchy and over-long. Again, this is entirely up to your personal taste, but we strongly advise not to go too short with these.
Cropped straight leg jeans:
90’s jeans – over-long with a higher rise but worn low on the hips
Dad Jeans – should be a anti-fit and at least ankle length
Straight Leg Jeans with a slight flare – these can always be cropped or ankle length
Continuing tomorrow with wide legs, boyfriends and more, so stay tuned!
