I just recently brought a pair of denim Sass and Bide jeans called 'a vintage life'. They are great, but I wonder if they make me appear shorter since they are cropped? Also, what other items of clothing do I pair them with? I'm struggling to find something to wear it with?
Great to see that you have purchased yourself a pair of Sass and Bide denim jeans! Prepare for these to last you a lifetime. I have just had a little look online at these jeans, and they are to die for! Such a great cut, finish and colour; perfect for trans-seasonal dressing as well.
Firstly, with any cropped pair of denim jeans I always go for pairing them with shoes that have a little heel. So, for during the day that could be ankle boots, and for the evening that could be some strappy heels. This is to ensure that you don't look too short, and the heeled shoes will also make your legs appear a little longer. This will also allow you to then pair the jeans with a variety of shirts, as you will have the length to do so, and wont appear swamped or too stumpy.
There are three ways you could style these jeans, as they are super versatile! Firstly, you could try wearing them with a long sleeved, white chifon style shirt that has a high neckline or detailing. This shirt could be tucked in for structure, or left out for a relaxed look. What the jeans will do with this shirt is make the look slightly classic with the fitted bottom half, but also slightly relaxed with the loose top half. Throw a black blazer on over the top, and allow for the cuffs of the shirt to appear at the wrists for a great contrasting look.
Second, you could also try pairing these jeans with a tucked in black, white or grey tee, as this will highlight your waist area and elongate your legs. Add ankle boots, which will enable a little skin to be revealed at ankle length, and will provide balance to the structured outfit.
Finally, try pairing the jeans with a shirt that has a belted or cinched in waist. This will allow for the bottom half of the shirt to flare out over the top of the jeans and provide a relaxed peplum-style look. Again, pair the jeans with ankle boots or heels to add height, and to show off your gorgeous waist.
