When your ankles need some breathing room, these women’s cropped jeans come to the rescue.

Let’s hear it for summer, which has finally arrived after a loooooooooong winter spent cooped up inside. These days, our skin is coated in a combination of sweat, sunscreen, and saltwater…and we are SO here for it. As the temperatures rise, our minds also turn to warm weather-friendly cropped jeans that leave space for our ankles to breathe. 

If any of these look familiar, it’s because capris have been around for, well, ever. And while they may have gone out of fashion for a hot sec, they’re back with a vengeance. So without further ado, our 12 faves…

This high-rise beaut with a 24” inseam is designed for those 5’4” and under. Because it’s constructed with a mix of cotton, polyester, viscose, and elastane, the fabric has some give and stretch to it — perfect for those long summer days.

Although white jeans are fair game any time of year, summer is when they shine (especially because they don’t attract heat like black jeans do). These high-rise jeans have a slightly cropped inseam and, while they look sleek and slick in the front, have a touch of edgy street style flair with the distressed pockets in the back. 

Is it just us, or do cuffed hems scream summer? That’s what we love about this mid-rise pair of cropped jeans from Levi’s, which pair just as perfectly with sneakers as they do with flip flops and sandals.

With a flared silhouette, frayed hems, and off-white hue, these Mother jeans are simultaneously sleek (and perfect for work!) while also channeling laid-back summer vibes.

Another pair of off-white jeans we love? Rag & Bone’s Maya Cropped cut, which has beautiful copper-tone hardware for contrast — and flared silhouette to boot.

Jag aptly named the color of these jeans “Fire Island,” which is fitting for the faded whiskered, cropped, laid-back, beachy look. Pair with a loose-fitted T-shirt for the ultimate bathing suit cover-up that’ll take you from beach to bike to boardwalk and back again.

NYDJ’s cropped jeans are made with high-stretch knit compression panels that create a smooth fit around the thigh area, as well as LiftTuck® technology to help flatten tummies and lift backsides. Not sure which size to order? We recommend selecting one size down. 

This curvy cut has a slim-leg silhouette, self-cuff hem, and is ALSO pull-on — no button fly to be found. Because we don’t know about you, but we’re striving for simplicity and ease this summer.

Slim fit jeans are *essentially* the same thing as bootcut, which earned its name when cowboys (circa 1850ish) needed pants that’d allow them to ride horses with enough calf space to fit their boots. This pair is cropped with a frayed, raw hem and faded, distressed look.

These medium-rise jeans (95% cotton, 5% spandex) come with a contoured waistband for an extra flattering fit. Plus, they’re extra stretchy and SO soft to the touch.

There are so many things we love about these jeans, but the embroidered lace cuffs take the cake. Is it possible for something to be both subtle while ALSO making a statement? Because these ankle jeans 100% do.

If there’s ever a time for bright pink, it’s summer. This pair of wide-leg jeans from Charter Club dazzles not only with its bold hue but double button design along the waist as well. They tend to run big, so we recommend ordering one size down.
