Why cropped jeans are our pick of the summer

Stand out and feel good in jeans made for the season. Cropped jeans are just right this time of year because their shorter length lets you enjoy the sun how you want, when you want.

Choose from all kinds of fits and styles with the cropped length – including some of our favorite women’s jeans like ripped jeans, high-waisted jeans, light wash jeans, flare jeans, Mom jeans, and a bunch more must-have styles. And with all kinds of options for fabric, wash and design, you can always find the right cropped length, fit and style for you.

It’s all about the details

The cropped, shorter length lets you focus on other key elements of your outfit – like your shoes. Go for a sport-inspired look when you wear cropped jeans with sneakers, or wear them with sandals and flats for an on-trend style all summer long. Other finishing touches like accessories help pull the outfit together, too.

Summer faves like floral scrunchies and bow front headbands look good everywhere you go, and other additions like bucket hats and sun hats help shield the sun and look good doing it, too. Make your cropped jeans look even more you with accessories like straw bags, fanny packs & other essentials made to look and feel good.

Raw and frayed hems make your cropped jeans better than the rest since they add some character to your look, while other details like strategic fading, rips, tears, patches and mending elevate your jeans with a little something extra. Feel good with all the finishing touches like hand-made destruction, rolled hems, ripped knees and more.

Cropped Jeggings

Find your fave crop fit with picks like cropped jeggings in low-rise or high-waisted styles. Get them with ripped knees and frayed hems to add some sunshine, and choose from fabrics like Ne(x)t Level Stretch, Forever Soft, and Dream to get the a super-soft, comfy fit and feel you’ll love all summer long.

Cropped Flare Jeans & Wide Leg Jeans

Or you can add a little flare to your look with cropped flare jeans and wide leg cropped jeans, both designed to add extra style to your outfit of the day. They still have the shorter cropped length you know and love – but use a flare leg opening to give you the silhouette you want. With all kinds of other options like Artist crop jeans and slim straight cropped jeans, you’ll never run out of choices for all your warm-weather outfits.

Crops on crops

Sure, we’ve sold you on all the benefits of wearing cropped jeans this summer, but now you might be wondering what to wear them with. Since our cropped jeans are designed with a high-waisted fit that always feels good, they’re just right for wearing with crop tops like cropped t-shirts, tube tops, cropped tank tops, and cropped sweatshirts.

Not into the crop top look? That’s okay, cropped jeans outfits don’t have to be complicated – just throw on your favorite women’s shirt and feel good about your look from morning to night.
