How To Style Crop Wide Leg Jeans to Look Casually Chic

They may be a hot trend, but crop wide-leg jeans have left many of us scratching our heads, wondering what to wear with them. They’re cute and fun with sneakers for everyday wear, but how can you dress them up to look more casually chic? Here are a few ideas.

Any time I want to create an elevated denim look, I start with quality jeans. These crop wide-leg jeans here from Karen Kane are one of the nicest pairs I’ve seen. They’re medium-waisted with a great fit, they’ve got some stretch, but not too much, and I love the classy dark wash. See how the hem lands at a really flattering spot? It’s just below my calves at the thinnest part of my leg. Finding your hem sweet spot is the key to looking long and lean in cropped wide-leg jeans.

The top you wear also matters when you want to look casually chic. It has to be elegant, relaxed, and cool, and this snake print twist front top (here too)  delivers on all three points.  Drop shoulders and soft fabric give it a laid-back feel. The draped twist front top detail and feminine sleeves make it elegant, and the python print adds a modern edge.

See how this top nips up in the middle? It’s so much more flattering than a top that cuts straight across your hips.  A twist from the top creates a beautiful waist and some lovely curves.

Of course, shoes and accessories make all the difference too. Add a pair of suede pumps and take this outfit to new heights! The gray and taupe tones in the shoes and top communicate a quiet elegance.

A beautiful gold chain crossbody bag (here also) builds on the sophisticated look and feel. I added a touch of gold jewelry, including my favorite Dean Davidson Plaza cocktail ring, and suddenly my casual crop wide-leg jeans outfit looked pretty posh.
