One of Fall’s biggest denim trends is cropped jeans. This is actually good news for short girls. The jeans can make you look very tall if you style them the right way! Here are my tips for looking taller in cropped jeans:
1. Go for darker denim
Darker denim is the most slimming, which makes you look longer and leaner. I went with a solid indigo wash. This season’s flare hem is also great for curves because it enhances an hourglass silhouette.
2. Add height with a Platform or pointed toe
Height is key with cropped jeans. Since it’s warmer in LA I did a platform sandal (my shoes are now on sale!). You can also do a platform boot. If you’re not a fan of platform, a pointed toe pump or boot also helps elongate your legs.
3. Tuck it in or keep it cropped
I love an oversize sweater as much as the next girl. But if you’re short, a longer top can make you look even shorter in cropped jeans. So make sure to either tuck your top in or embrace the crop top trend. My sweater is only $15!
I hope these tips help you if you’re planning to try out the cropped denim trend this Fall!
