Cropped jeans have traditionally been the staple denim fixture for fair weather days, especially in the summer. I mean, why would you wear cropped jeans when it’s probably snowing, raining or typhooning outside your window? Is there such a thing as ankle frostbite?
As we experience the last weeks of winter, there’s no time like the present for breaking into your spring denim reserve to lay out your month’s worth of cropped looks. Work your Ankle and Capri style jeans. I don’t recommend Clamdiggers or Bermudas, as they’re just too short.

And this is why we wear platform booties and heels. They are your new best accessory. I love how your jeans look when they meet with your booties, above the ankles!
On the short side? Wear your petite jeans or roll up your denim. Rock the platforms. The look balances out your legs and creates an elongated illusion. Fashion can be functional, contrary to traditional belief.

The only dilemma you’ll find is whether you are showing off your cropped jeans look or your platform booties look. Oh, but, do you really care?
