I’m 45. Is it o.k. to wear cropped colored jeans? I think they would be a good way to bring some color into my fall 2017 wardrobe. Can you give me ideas for what to wear them with? – Carla
You’ve never too old for colored jeans. They add a youthful touch, and the cropped style is very popular at the moment. This season there are a lot of lovely Fall colors, and they are not so bright that you have to worry about looking like a stop sign. Here are a few ideas for how to style cropped colored jeans this fall.
1. Cropped Skinny Jeans in Burgundy
Burgundy is one of the top colors for fall, and it’s my favorite choice if you want to buy a pair of colored jeans. This color is just so rich and classy. It’s such a nice change from your regular blue jeans, but this shade of dark red isn’t loud and bossy. This is the classic cropped style that is just above the ankle and has a skinny, classic fit. I think they look great with a patterned top that picks up on the burgundy and a pair of cute flats. You can’t go wrong with this chic way of styling cropped colored jeans.
2. Cropped Colored Jeans with Frayed Hem
Here’s another style that is really popular now – the fringe edge cropped jean. I have these exact jeans (and a pair in white too) and I love them. They are super comfy, and that touch of fringe adds a playful edge. Olive is a great color because it’s perfect year round. It’s like a blue jean- it works with every color. I like it here with these cute tan booties and a crossbody bag. It gives it a nice fall feel.
3. Cropped Colored Jeans with a Flare
Now, this is an interesting color and style. This looks like that new Autumn Maple color I have been telling you about for fall. I like it because it has life, but again, it is more muted than a straight orange or bright red jean.
Here it has been paired with a white blouse. A neutral cools down bright Jeans and also lets them take center stage. The brighter the jean, the less color you want up if you are aiming for a more sophisticated look.
Do you notice the jeans have a little flare to them? This is a little more fashion-forward than skinny, but not for everybody. If you can wear it, fabulous! But stick to skinny if this feels weird to you.
One other thing. Look at those darling suede mules. These are the newest type of shoe everyone is wearing with cropped jeans and just any kind of pant in general. An interesting shoe like this is especially important with cropped jeans because all emphasis is on your ankle and feet.
