It’s officially summer! That means it’s time to break out your cropped jeans and warm weather wardrobe. If you’re feeling stuck… don’t worry! We’re here with our tips for how to style cropped jeans this season. 

If you’re looking to refresh your jeans collection, join the Revelle community! Answer a few short questions and get access to a personalized online jeans store, full of jeans curated just for you. We’ll also recommend what size to buy so your jeans will fit right the first time you try them on.

How to Style Cropped Jeans: 11 Outfit Ideas

The number one reason to wear cropped jeans is… because you get to show off your shoes! Pull out your boldest, coolest pair of booties or sandals and style an outfit around them. We love this look (I mean, can you believe these suede ankle boots exist? Brb, ordering them right now!).

We are firm believers in wearing jeans to the office. The best way to do it? Layer your favorite basics. Add a blazer, a black bag, and loafers. This is also a great look for happy hour or date night! Just pack a pair of heels.

If you’re wondering how to style cropped jeans when it’s hot outside, have no fear. High waisted cropped jeans are the PERFECT pair of jeans for summer for two reasons. 1. They’re high-rise, so they’re so easy to wear with a crop top. 2. They’re cropped on the bottom so they don’t feel stuffy when it’s hot outside. Opt for a fun, strappy crop top like this one to finish your outfit with summer flair!

Layering always adds dimension to an outfit, especially with cropped pants. Play with layering by wearing an oversized white button down over your crop top.

An open cardigan and matching accessories… is anything more trendy right now? We love the look of a cardigan with matching shoes and a fitted top underneath. Stack some jewelry and you’re ready to head out the door!

A sleek black top and jeans will never NOT be the ultimate date night look. This outfit pairs cropped flare jeans with a black bodysuit, high heels, and YES that is fanny pack. We’re obsessed.

We know this one is a little controversial… but we LOVE the look of a classic denim jacket and jeans. It’s the perfect look for a Sunday stroll at the farmer’s market, especially if you pair it with a white button down and Mary Janes. If you’re looking for a more subtle way to achieve this look, pair white capris with your jean jacket.

Jeans go with everything, so try something new by pairing them with a bright, colorful top. For contrast, wear white jeans and white sneakers. 

If you’re a neutrals girl through and through (we totally get it!), grab your favorite white tank top and jeans for an all white outfit. This is a great warm weather twist on the all black you may wear in the fall and winter.

If you find yourself constantly reaching for the same basics, try mixing it up with a leather jacket. This street-style look has the same feel as your everyday jeans and tee, but brings an edge. It’s also a great way to dress up jeans and a t-shirt for dinner with friends! 

Go through your closet and find your favorite textured pieces. It could be a sherpa jacket like this one, a bubble vest, a feathery top… you name it! Pair your textured items with cropped denim jeans that have a frayed hem. Even if you’re going for a casual look, your outfit will coordinate effortlessly.

For personalized jeans recommendations, join the Revelle community! We’ll curate jeans FOR YOU based on your body shape. Do you have short legs? Strong thighs? A narrow waist? Whatever your shape, we think you’re beautiful the way you are. Your jeans should be made to fit YOU, not the other way around. In addition to curating jeans for you, we’ll recommend which size to purchase based on reviews from other women.
