How To Wear Straight Crop Jeans

Happy Monday! I hope you had a good weekend and you’re ready for a new week. We had a hot weekend here in Kentucky, but what can you expect, it’s the dog day of summer, right?

Today I’m sharing How To Wear Straight Crop Jeans. These are the new must-have pant silhouette when it comes to jeans. These jeans have a comfortable, relaxed fit and they’re more forgiving than the skinny jeans that have ruled fashion for so long.

Of course, don’t throw your skinny jeans out, they’re still a staple, but if you want to try something new, the straight crop jeans are a great option. These jeans are from American Eagle, and they’re on sale for $29.96!

Ideally, this style jean will hit above your ankle and hit your leg as it starts to narrow. You never want your pants to hit at the widest part of your leg because it will accentuate that area.

I paired these jeans with a beautiful Allison Joy tank that can be worn now but also later this fall.

Next, I styled this outfit for a date night by adding a pair of heels and a faux leather jacket to keep you warm on cooler evenings.

You don’t have to worry with tucking this tank in because the front sits shorter and the back hem is longer. I love this style top!

Have you tried the straight crop jeans style?

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to stop by my blog. I’m also on FacebookPinterest, and, Instagram.

Beauty for the Heart~~Satan never wastes a fiery dart on an area covered in armor. -Beth Moore

Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle, you will still be standing firm. Ephesians 6:11-13

Have a blessed day!

  1. Just ordered the crop jeans. Hope the sizing works. I believe I need the “short” from reading the reviews and my height at 5’3″. But didn’t know if 4 or 6. I ordered the 4 as 6 was out of stock. This is going to be a stretch for me, as I like my skinny’s. 🙂 You look great in them. I’m hoping they don’t stretch out in one wearing. Have you worn yours for a day yet to know if they do?

  2. Thank you for posting your lovely thoughts about your mother. I lost mine several years ago and miss her, her love, companionship, and counsel more every single day! ❤️

  3. Wow Cyndi! Have never heard that quote before, but so very true! And I very much needed to hear it, so thank you for sharing!

  4. I can relate about missing your Mom. I lost my Mom 3 years ago and I think of her so often.

    Such cute outfits!! What are the trends in denim this year?

  5. I’m going to have to try this style of jean I guess. I’ve been such a skinny jean gal lol.. but you make them look so good. I’ve really been adding to my transitional wardrobe as our falls can be quite warm. I miss my mom and dad daily.. I lost my mom almost 7 years ago and my dad just over 2 years ago. I could always call mom for advise and just vent… I especially missed her( and my dad) at our daughter’s wedding this past May but they werewith us in spirit. I do the same thing with my recipe books. I mark our kids favorites 😉too funny.

  6. I just a couple weeks ago got my first American Eagle jeans (high waist jeggings), and I love them! They are already my favorites and probably going to make me throw away my other less desirable jeans. They have great stretch but don’t bag out. I paid more than $29.99, though.

    I fell ya on missing your mother more at certain times. October will make 15 years since my dad died. How can he have been out of my life so long? He knew he had a grandson named after him before he died. Now he has a great-grandson named after him, too . . . such a great tribute, especially since his name isn’t common. My sister and son had to go out of their way to name those boys after him.

  7. Prayers for this month and missing your mother, I don’t know how I’m going to handle that when I’m faced with it, How sweet that you have found little notes from her!
    I just love your fashion helps. I’ve been finding you on the internet for a couple of years but just recently joined to get email updates. Please continue posting ideas for fall – you’re my go-to for helping with a closet full of clothes that I don’t know how to put together! My latest purchase is brown side-zip skinny pants….so I’ll be looking to you for inspiration on how to wear these!

    1. Thank you! I just saw a lady today while I was out shopping with brown pants on and she was wearing the prettiest orange cheetah print blouse with them and metallic sandals. I should have asked where she purchased it!

  8. I know the pain you feel missing your mom. My mom passed twenty years ago and I still miss her. I miss our talks, her good sense in all matters and her sweet love. I hope your little talk at your mom’s resting place has allowed you to feel some peace.
    I like the straight crop on you but find it wrong on myself. Perhaps, it’s only because I’m tall and it feels like I’m wearing high waters. Lol I did buy two pairs of straight leg jeans this weekend though. Baby steps!

  9. I love this outfit!!! Can those jeans er worn with ankle boots in the fall?? I’ve been wearing skinny jeans for so long, im not sure what to do with the wider lig coming back in style!! Thanks, Cyndi; you’re the best!!

  10. Love that you are sharing a denim option that is not a skinny jean. It’s fun to change things up. You look so cute!
    I can relate to your feelings. My dad passed away 20 years ago in September and this time of year I am always full of emotions that can be a bit overwhelming. It’s helpful to read about how you are holding on to God. Hope you have a lovely day.

  11. I like the straight crops so much better than the flare crops! That outfit looks very cute on you!
    My mama went to be with Jesus last year. I know the holidays are going to be tough this year. I still have my precious daddy, and I treasure all our time together. Praying comfort for your heart.

  12. Cyndi, You are so blessed to have had such a wonderful mother in your life. Reading your post this morning had me in tears. Your mother sounds like a wonderful person and your so blessed to have your memories . I’m sure your mother is looking down on you and Traci and so proud of both of you! Have a blessed day!

  13. Cute outfits, but the love you have for your mother just reminds me of my own love for the sweetest mom/person in the world. My precious mama passed in 2009, also. I cannot believe she has been gone from my presence for 10 years in October. I so wish I could talk to her, but more than that I wish she could see what godly young men her grandsons are! I’m sad they didn’t get to spend more time with her or my daddy…We were blessed to be raised by sweet mamas!

  14. Hi Cyndi! Well, I was going to order the jeans, but they are out of stock in my size. I sure hope they restock them soon, at the same great price. I have not tried AE jeans before. I know what you mean about missing your mom more at certain times because I do the same thing. My dad died way back in 1986 and there are still certain times that I really long for his presence. Because I know that both of them are so much better off now, I am able to not absorbed with sadness. Have a blessed day!

  15. Thank you for sharing about your precious mother. Through your sharing, she has become an inspiration to me! I want to be like her! I want to be an encourager to my family and all I come in contact with. I do still have my mom and mother-in- law, both 80 years old. I will make sure to cherish everyday I have with them. ❤️

  16. Cyndi, today is my sweet Mama’s birthday. She left this world in 1998. I totally understand about missing your mother. Have a blessed day🙏

  17. Hello, Cyndi! 🙋🏻‍♀️

    When you speak about your mom, I feel your pain…! The way we mourn is as individual as we are. Each person and relationship is different, which means that is how we deal with each loss will be different. It helps to allow your emotions to come out- cry out to Jesus! You will have closure in heaven some day and you will see your mom. 😊
    The tank top is so cute that I’m going to order it.


  18. Thanks for the tip about AE jeans! I do love good jeans at a good price. Question: do you think this style of jeans will work well on someone with short legs? Or should we leave these to you longer-legged girls? I do love that top. So many of the floral tops seem kind of “meh” to me, but this one looks great.

    Isn’t it weird how grief can come in waves? Sometimes they just threaten to overtake you. I am so glad that you and Traci and Blake had the kind of mother you did–just look at the legacy of those rose-colored glasses! 🙂

  19. Cyndi – my mom passed away 18 years ago & I can’t even tell you how much I still miss her. I still have days I just want to hear her say “love you honey”. I think we never completely get over the loss of our parents & siblings – they were our first family & friends.

    Have a blessed day.

  20. I just passed the anniversary (14 years ago) of my dad. I miss him every day, but it is especially hard at the anniversary. (My mom is in memory care, and she doesn’t remember any of this, or much of anything at all, and she speaks in word salad, so she cannot carry on a conversation. Grieving for her while she is physically alive. I try to remember the good memories, not the shell she is now.) Keep your memories alive.

  21. Such a cute transition outfit and I have one pair of flare crop jeans and haven’t worn them much but I think it’s because I am petite and not sue they look very flattering on me. I lost my mother 10yrs ago and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her and it does help me to go to her grave site sometimes because the has a beautiful tree and bench and I can sit there and tell her everything, even tho she already knows. 💕

  22. Hi Cyndi,
    Can you wear the straight crop jean with flats? I am 5’9″ so I don’t wear a lot of heals.
    Thank you!

  23. Cyndi, thank you SO much for your straight from the heart sharing. We just had my mother in-law of 35 years funeral service on Friday. It was a bittersweet time of tears and laughter. Grateful she was with our Savior now after an eleven year journey with Alzheimer’s. Beauty From The Heart was a much needed reminder this Monday morning. Be blessed and be a blessing! 👩🏻‍🏫❤️🙏🏻

  24. Cute outfit today! I’m always confused with the longer backs of the blouses and jackets. Old school makes it seem sloppy, but you always rock it! So if Cyndi shows it..I guess it’s in style and even works for us seasoned gals…65+

    Love your blog,,

  25. Awe Cindy? I’m so very sorry for your extreme sadness. Made me tear up for you. You were so very blessed to have such a wonderful Christian mother. And her legacy goes on as you and your sister are so much like her. I didn’t have that type of a mom in my life. She had a love/hate relationship with me and caused so very much heartache in my life. Her husband (stepdad) and my mom and step brothers haven’t talked to me in eight years. Told me I was the problem and they just wanted the real family together. But my real Father is the Lotd. He never leaves my side and has brought me through so much.
    So I guess I just wanted to say be soooo thankful for your mother and the wonderful memories she has left. Even though it hurts and you miss her. There will be a wonderful reunion in heaven some day!!
    Blessings!! Donna

    1. Donna, reading through your comment makes my heart ache for you. . . family dynamics can be such a source of heartache! I am grateful that you have a relationship with our Father in heaven, and I pray today that you will be comforted and blessed as you walk with him.

      1. RIchella
        I can’t thank you enough for your support and prayer. When I read it I cried and felt a peace through the spirit of prayer you sent my way! Thank you so much!!! God is always good!!
        Blessings to you!!!

    2. Oh, Donna, I am sitting at my desk tearing up reading your comment. I am so sorry you didn’t have a loving, supportive mother in your life and that your step-dad and step-brothers don’t consider you “real family.” Sadly, sometimes you have to create your own “family of choice”…I hope you can do that. I’m so glad you are leaving on the Heavenly Father to fill those empty places.

      1. Bonnie
        No words can express my gratitude for your comments. Sometimes I feel no one cares then the Lord sends a complete stranger into my word with such kind words of encouragement!! God is so good all the time!!
        I do have a wonderful husband and some very good Christian friends in my life that help me daily! Even though the words they gave me hurt and I had to move on I’m so much better off then the continued abusive beheavior
        Thank you so much and God bless you!!

    3. We just passed the anniversary of my Mom’s death and my Dad died just last year, so I understand the ache. What helps me most is picturing them happy in Heaven.

    4. Oh Donna, this breaks my heart. May the God of all comfort wrap His arms around you. Thankful you know Him and His love.
