When Nordstrom had triple-point rewards at the beginning of the month, I wanted to treat myself to something a little different, so I thought I’d try this new high-waist wide-leg cropped silhouette! Well, I use the term “new” loosely of course … more of a 70’s throwback, right?

Are they flattering?
Well, it depends on your shape of course. I certainly admit they aren’t the *most* flattering cut for a pear shape like me. But I feel very cute in them, so there’s that! Honestly, my husband said they look “weird.” But you know … men.
How can I wear them?
These jeans have lots of versality. I styled them with one of my go-to combinations, black and white with pops of red. I plan to dress them up for date night with some sassy heels or booties. They also would totally work with flip flops or sneakers for a Saturday casual look. And best of all, I think they will transition right from spring to summer to fall perfectly. I’m already planning an fall outfit with knee high boots and a ribbed turtleneck sweater!

I really like these jeans, but my hubby isn’t a fan of them either!! I’d still like to get a pair anyway – lol. Jacqui
Haha … yeah I don’t think they scream “sexy”!! ;P
I like these jeans, but not on me. They don’t flatter my figure at all. I’ve given up trying! I like how you’ve styled them though. xx
They aren’t too flattering on me either, but yeah, sometimes I just want to wear something anyway!! ;P
I love the red accessories with them! 🙂 Culottes aren’t for me in any fabric as I’m petite but some people (like yourself!) really rock them.
Thank you for the link up!
Hope you have a lovely weekend ahead of you 🙂

Thanks Mica! 🙂
An oldie but a goodie, right? Those jeans are a nice change of pace and you look great. Thanks for hosting and starting off a fun weekend.
Thanks Rena! 🙂
I would have to try on a pair and judge because i don’t think I have ever tried a pair on……..will have to go find some and find out!
I bet they would be cute on you! 🙂
I think you look very cute in them! I have been considering a pair myself! Peace!
You would rock them for sure! 😉
I like the pants! They are fun & you look great! My husband doesn’t “get” anything but “regular” length pants and shape either… 😉
Thanks for the link up & have a great weekend!
Haha … husbands are funny! ;P
I think it’s nice to have different silhouettes, Dawn. It’s no different than my longer midi dress, and I thought I should shorten it, but everyone else liked the length!!
Besides, if/when you get tired of them, you could always shorten them!!
Yeah it’s fun to experiment, right?! 😀
I love the jeans! I’ve been looking for some cropped flare jeans. I really like how you’ve styled yours with the red mules and striped top.
I don’t think many people can pull off this style of jean but they look great on you!
Aren’t you the cutest thing carrying off this trendy look?! I love it and styled perfectly. I envy you ladies with long legs!
Lol…men, sometimes they just don’t get it! I think you look fabulous my friend. Have a great weekend!
Ahhh…..I’m heading into Friday feeling so lucky to be featured here!! Thank you so much sweet lady. Day…made!
Well-deserved! Loved this fun fresh combo!! 🙂
I think these high wide pants are the perfect cut for you! Have a great weekend!
Well I think they look adorable on you and you styled them perfectly!

Don’t give your hubby’s comment a second thought, dearest Dawn…these wide-leg cropped jeans are fantastic!! I love the way you styled them with your striped top and cherry-red mules today (the perfect spring look!) and I agree – they’ll be just as chic in the summer with sandals and for fall with ankle boots!! You go, denim diva!! 😀
You styled them perfectly, these jeans a lot of fun to be worn in many ways. Love them
You are the perfect model for these culotte! And those mules…. wonderfull! Have a great weekend!
I’m ALL for the cropped wide leg trousers/jeans, Dawn Lucy! Especially love them with the cute mules… That’s my kind of easy summer dressing 🙂
Thank you for the link up, have a great weekend!
Love how you styled these cute new jeans of yours! The classic striped tee is perfect with them. My hubby is just like yours when it comes to new trends. Lol! Thanks for the link up!

Those jeans are the cutest and look great on you! Love the pops of red!
Doused In Pink
Such a cute look on you! Love the color pops of the shoes and bag too!
ha-ha! Husbands don’t like it whenever we wear something a little different. I’m not a fan of the pants. I tried on a pair myself and I just thought I looked ridiculous. But I always love them on everyone else. I really love your shoes!
You look stylish in your new look! I love your stripe top and mules. This look would be perfect for Memorial Day and Fourth of July.
I dont wear jeans as much as dresses, but think they look great on you. its fun to try a new styl e and I love the red mules with the look!
Madewell has the best denim! I love these cropped wide leg jeans on you. Such a pretty look!
love this outfit!! SO cute! the wide leg culottes are so cute!!!
Those jeans are fabulous on you!
I’m personally really loving this silhouette right now. No doubt about it, the cut just feels fresh and modern. You look amazing in yours and I especially like them with classic striped t-shirt and the red accessories. Very fun!
I think this style looks great on you! I really hope I can still fit in my wide leg crop jeans after baby. I love this style!
Jeans and a Teacup
I love these pants. Madewell has an amazing fit and you look fabulous in them. I agree with the turtleneck for Fall. Great investment!
I love your pants and I have been looking for some like these. They are kind of like culottes! Thanks for stopping Ladies Who Link Up! Peace!
Red and black/white stripes will always be my favorite combo! I’m obsessed with every single piece you shared in this post!

I have been meaning to add some cropped raw hem culotte jeans and I love yours. The cherry woodsy accessories here are my most favorite though. Love the sunnies and mules, Dawn Lucy!
