This question has come up a lot over the past year or so as cropped straight leg jeans have become such a popular style of jeans. They’re very easy to wear in warm weather, but what about when the temperature drops? Do you just store them away and wait until the temperature rises?
If you live in a somewhat mild climate, a mid-shaft pointed toe boot is an easy solution that keeps your ankles warm and adds a little edge to your outfit, too. Wear lower socks that are hidden, or for more warmth (and another chance to accessorize) you can have your socks come up higher than the boot.
The exact boots I have on here are by ABLE (and 25% off with Natalie25). I have my true size, but if anything they do run a smidge big so you could consider going down 1/2 size — unless you’ll be wearing really thick socks, of course. I love them paired with these cropped Agolde jeans and that they give me a way to wear the jeans all year round.
I kept the look classic with a black turtleneck (similar and similar) and a trench coat — mine is actually a sweater trench and you can get 15% off with my code Natalie15. This J.Crew long sweater blazer gives a similar look as well. Want a more traditional trench? I love the look of this one. And of course if it’s colder where you live, you can choose an even warmer top layer. Any black crossbody would work with this look, but here’s the exact one I have and also another really beautiful investment option.
Lastly, for a really easy, chic hair option when your hair is dirty, I’m a big fan of the slicked back low bun — I use a french pin to hold the bun in place.
Do you have any boots like this? What shoes do you like to wear with your cropped jeans when the temperatures drop?
P.S. The hammered hoops I’m wearing are a sample from a design I was going to do for the holidays (before I decided not to do a holiday collection). I’ve been wearing them lately and I’m thinking they need to officially be added to a collection this year. Let me know if you’d be interested!
