Cropped jeans are the perfect in-between season alternative – long enough to provide enough coverage (read keep you warm) in autumn and short enough to start showing your legs (spring). Plus, they hold a special place in the hearts and wardrobes of all women who are beyond in love with shoes. Their length ranges from capri-style jeans that sit just under the knee to ankle-grazers. The shorter styles are mostly skinnies or wide-legged while the longer ones tend to be skinnies or flares, resulting in a range of options to help you find the cropped jeans to suit your figure and lifestyle. Because of the shorter length, dressing your cropped jeans is all about the right proportions. Avoid shortening your legs by tucking in your T-shirt or blouse and opting for waist- or hip-length jackets. Cropped tops with cropped pants will simply be one cropped item too many and longer jackets tend to have an anti-slimming effect. Women's cropped jeans are often considered casual and relaxed but given a stunning pair of heels, slim-fit top or blouse and great jacket, they can take you from weekend to week day with ease. Cropped skinnies love wedges, sneakers and slip-on sandals, making them a fantastic choice for a lazy weekend.
Like all other jeans, you can have your dropped pair as light or dark as your jeans-loving heart desires. Ditto the detailing. Frayed hemlines are the most informal of all and have boho festival-style written all over them whereas neat flares are the cropped jeans of choice of some of the best-dressed Hollywood A-listers. Cropped pants have been around since the early ’50s when capris and cigarette pants, as ankle-grazers were called then, became popular. In-between season dressing aside, their enduring appeal lie in the fact that they are geared for an active lifestyle or days spent on the run. Spree's collection of cropped jeans has simply given this classic style a modern silhouette to fit in with the latest women's fashions. Effortless style has never been so easy!
