Post by Wantable Staff

The first falling leaves have us reminiscing about back-to-school shopping and the crisp, new jeans that always signified autumn’s arrival. Thankfully, the parental shopping lists are long gone, but our love for building a fresh fall look is still strong. Whether you’re starting from scratch or transitioning your summer wardrobe, this season’s ankle-baring cuts are the perfect foundation for effortless style. Our stylists share a few easy tips for styling their favorite fall denim trend: cropped jeans.

“Wear your favorite tattered pair of cropped boyfriend jeans with a simple top and jacket so the focus is on the raw-edged cuffs and other cool, destroyed details.”
