I've been seeing cropped, flared denim all over fashion blogs this fall and wondered if I could pull of the trend. When the J. Crew pair I'd been eying went on major sale (I scored them for $37) I knew I had to pull the trigger. Even then, it took me some courage to wear them. Since height is not in my favor, I paired them with these heeled Sam Edelman booties. I know the leggy J. Crew models can wear them with flat Oxfords, but I tried that and it made me look like I have cankles (which I thankfully do not). The height made the overall look slimmer and paired with a favorite striped sweater I felt like I was stepping just right outside of my comfort zone.
Here are a few other cropped pairs from J. Crew, Frame, and M.i.h.
