Whether they are rolled up or left down, it has become a statement to showcase your ankles through your jeans.
Rising in the mid-sixties, cropped jeans have made a comeback that has taken the fashion world by storm.
Thanks to globalization, almost everyone seems to be wearing it. From your favorite celebrity star to ordinary passersby on the street.
Doesn’t matter if you are a woman or a man, cropped jeans are available in every size for every gender.
The prices range, suits from someone on a budget to someone who is looking forward to buying the most luxurious jeans available on the market.
The trend has been subject to much debate, where it has gathered support as well as, well-guarded speculation amongst its audience.
I understand that there might be reasons behind your annoyance with cropped jeans.
Perhaps it’s because you feel it doesn’t suit your body type, or that everyone’s wearing it so it really doesn’t matter if you do.
If this is the reason then you might want to reconsider your choice, my friend.
This is because a huge variety of cropped jeans are available, in different styles that are each unique in their own way.
You can pick one that flatters your body shape and compliments your day-to-day style, with a look that blends in as well as stands out.
Or are we getting taller??? One might see a general decrease in length among jeans, even those that fall into the normal category.
Obviously, this could be a source of nuisance for many, since the only jeans that fit you perfectly end right above your ankle, which could be termed as “the childhood jeans look” by many.
The fact that you do not have the right shoes that go well with your cropped jeans might also start to rub in too. And let’s not forget about our socks’ insecurities.
They have the worst timings to make themselves known, and then you’re forced to wear your shoes without the socks after all.
However, wearing ankle-length jeans should not be much of a hassle if brought correctly. If you’re a person with long legs any cropped jeans-style would suit you, ranging from trousers with wide flairs to more fitted ones.
You can rock it with any shoes of your choice including flats or sandals, making the perfect summer outfit. However, cropped jeans weren’t designed just for summers.
You could also wear them during winter with an edgy leather jacket and sneakers to go for a bold yet casual look.
Hope doesn’t dwindle for the shorties present here too.
Make sure you find the perfect fit of cropped jeans for yourself, avoiding flairs and wide pants since they could make you look shorter.
Wearing them with high heels could really bring out the best in them. Don’t be afraid to cut down the length too, since this can make your legs look longer and slimmer.
The emergence (or comeback) of so many different styles in jeans, some of which are making widespread trends in the fashion world, could be an alarm for skinny jeans lovers, such as myself.
Some of the top trending items in the market right now, are bootcut, wide flared bottoms, as well as barrel leg and straight leg jeans, which are making it to the runways this year.
Celebrities like Ms. Beckham and Celine Dion were seen to be flaunting such styles with grace and confidence in their latest clicks.
The rise in favor of jeans with different styles among the public has resulted in their greater production in the designer industry.
Most of the widely known brands like Gucci, Levi’s and Zara are producing varieties of different denim since they are favorable among their customers.
It would seem like the people are getting bored by the skin tight jeans and what they ensued, after being the hit item for a decade in the world of fashion.
The fact that they were uncomfortable just added to their relative demise.
Since more comfortable options are available, men and women alike are shifting in that direction.
The quality of their production was also being compromised by using materials that weren’t friendly to the planet and human health.
Despite the backlash and the apparent lack of interest from the public, skinny jeans have remained one of the top trending fashion items in 2021.
Top brands like Good American and Zara are still producing them, and have got some hit market pieces in their collection.
So those of you assuming the era of skinny jeans is over, then you might want to think again.
They are going nowhere in 2022 and it’s just a matter of how you wear them.
First of all, due to the looser fitting styles, they are increasingly more comfortable than their former extremely popular counterpart, skinny jeans.
- Exposure of the ankles allows more ventilation to the legs, keeping you cool during summer days.
- Wide space trousers allow room for movement without the material snagging onto the skin.
Another reason that might answer why oh why, cropped jeans are among the top trends right now, is the huge variety that they are available in.
There are so many different styles to choose from including baggy jeans, straight-leg pants, boyfriend jeans, and a whole lot of other that make them so much more interesting and worthy of investing money in.
Even though they face much skepticism at the hands of buyers, since they are worried about whether they will suit them or not, they are still among the rise of trending fashion items this year.
Credit goes to greater self-awareness and knowledge among the public as well as the changing narrative of fashion.
People are seeing cropped jeans as a playful and fun closet item for expressing themselves and channel their creativity, rather than something that projects their insecurities on display.
Since so much seems to be in fashion right now, it is easy to get lost and forget your inner style in the process.
While it’s good to be following trends, it’s even important to stay true to yourself.
So if you want to wear cropped jeans, wear them. But don’t wear them just because everyone else is wearing them.
