The Rise of Relaxed & Cropped Denim
When making the transition to ‘normal’, we recommend taking a slow and considered approach.
Thanks to the homebound nature of 2020 so far, chances are you’ve probably been neglecting your trusty pair of jeans. Now with restrictions easing and weather warming, what is the best way to reintroduce denim into everyday dressing?
While making the switch back to wearing jeans may be daunting, we have found solace in the cropped, relaxed denim fit. Featuring a comfy shape paired with a short leg length, this proportionately flattering fit will soon become a spring favourite (it’s really just a bonus that these jeans are also heavily trending everywhere at the moment).
Alongside the demise of the skinny-jeans jean, and straight legs reserved for the semi-serious, we have been seeing a substantial rise in popularity when it comes to the roomier fit jean.
When describing the fit of a relaxed jean, the terminology itself is just that, relaxed. Classified as a denim pant anywhere between a slim to wide leg, many leg profiles fall under the relaxed umbrella, even tapered. The cropped length brings with it versatility and ease that we are all about this season.
Quit the rolled cuff and keep it simple with a shorter hem length. Elongating the leg, and reducing bulk will leave you with a sleek, unconfusing hemline, perfect to sport with sandals, sneakers, and pretty much any spring-appropriate shoe.
If we can’t be relaxed, maybe our jeans should be. Shop our favourite relaxed and cropped jeans below.
