The Best Way to Style Cropped Denim if You’re Short

Happy Friday, loves! We’re Houston-bound today to visit my brother for his birthday and we could not be more excited! Over the next month or so, I will be doing a lot of traveling with the girls, so I’ve started the mental packing list. From camping to being at the lake, we’ll be packing for several different kinds of activities. But, I’ve been trying to stock up on some basics that I can style for any location. Things like a good pair of jeans, a denim skirt, a good vneck tee, and tops like the one in today’s post.

I have been loving the cropped denim trend, and will definitely be bringing this pair on multiple trips. The pair in today’s post is from LOFT from last year. However, they came out with an identical pair this year. I’m truly a high rise, skinny jean gal at heart, but think it’s fun to play with trends, too!

As we all know though, not all trends can be worn by every body type. Cropped denim almost falls into that category for me being 5’2.” So, for me, I have to be pretty intentional when I wear cropped denim. The last thing I want to do is make myself look shorter and squattier. So, I always pair my cropped denim with heels. This gives me height, elongates my body, and allows you to see my ankles – the point of cropped pants.
