Styling Guide: How To Style Cropped Jeans

Jeans are the one piece of clothing that everyone has. They are the staple in every wardrobe, from a teenager to a grown woman. They are universal and stylish, transcending decades and fashions. If you could buy one pair of pants this season, I would argue that cropped relaxed denim is the best option.

I am biased when it comes to jeans because I love everything about them. They are practical, versatile, and stylish. Unless you work for a law firm or investment company, you can pull off denim every day of the week. Pair your favorite pair with a white tee, shirt, sweater, cardigan, or blouse. Spice them up with chic pair of pumps or cool sneakers.

Ways To Style

The Classic

The classic option is the most practical and easy to style. All you need is a pair of jeans paired with a t-shirt (or shirt). Spice up the look with bold accessories, shoes, and a handbag. This look is perfect for a weekend, errands run, play date, or coffee date.

Pro Tip: Since we are wearing white, make sure you have a great bra that holds you in, supports, and offers proper coverage.

The Layered Classic

Upgrade the classic option with a blazer or cardigan to elevate the casual look. The blazer will provide added polish and structure, transforming the simple look into a more polished outfit.

Pro Tip: Many outfits can benefit from an added blazer. The right blazer has the power to change the entire ensemble into a chic and exciting outfit.

The Summer Fun

If this fits your style, you can always pair denim with a cropped top for summer. A high-waisted pair of jeans will keep you secured, while a nice cropped top will add drama.

Pro Tip: If you are not a fan of showing a lot of skin but still want to wear a cropped top, then throw on a cardigan or jacket.

The Date Drama

The date option is fun and sexy. Pair your denim with a camisole or blouse, add a pair of pumps and a blazer. A delicate evening top will work well with casual jeans.

Pro Tip: You can always add drama with earrings, a necklace, a fun handbag, and exciting pumps.

The Weekend

We all love the weekend, but no one likes an uncomfortable outfit. In this case, I suggest pairing denim with an exciting cool tee, sweater, or sweatshirt, adding sneakers or athletic shoes.


The ultimate beauty of jeans is that they work with almost everything. I mean, yes, you probably should not pair them with a skirt or dress. However, it is totally up to you.

When it comes to shoes, the sky is the limit. Pair your favorite denim with sandals, pumps, kitty heels, sneakers, running shoes, or boots. Jeans are not picky; they can be dressed up or down with no reservations.

One thing to keep in mind, though, make sure that what you are wearing is appropriate for an occasion.

  • If it is a casual work lunch, it is better to pair jeans with a shirt and blazer.

  • If you are going on a day date, jeans will work well with a tee or tank top.

  • If it is a casual evening event, think about a delicate blouse and pumps to counterbalance the casual denim.
