Ditch the skinnies and update your denim collection with the summer’s favorite pant: the frayed crop jean. This style will be sure to get you noticed and won’t grow tiresome since it can be styled in so many versatile ways. The total French girl-approved jeans add a vintage flare to any look, especially when accessorized with cat-eye sunglasses or a straw tote à la Jane Birkin. (I’ve seen this maxi dress styled over cropped, flared denim and I can say, without shame, that I’ve copied the look head to toe).
For this outfit I’ve paired the denim with a crisp white button-down and an oversize blazer, although I can assure you, these pants look just as good with a blazer and boots as they do with a crop top and mules. I love the high waist of these jeans and the light wash shade is perfect for the summertime.
One of the best parts about dressing for this season, in addition to getting to wear swimsuits in lieu of real clothes, is finally being able to wear white. After bearing the cold for months dressed in drab grays, it’s nice to re-incorporate white back into my wardrobe. As you can tell by this outfit, I have not been holding back when it comes to bleached accessories. From my white and gold star-print clutch, very Stella McCartney-esque, to these pointy patent boots—I am here for it this summer.
