These Re/Done The Leandra Jeans (also online here and here and in-store only here and here) are hands down the best cropped flare jeans ever! Perfect high waist fit (with girdle like qualities) and kick flare, which even on a short person like me, works! The flare is achieved with an extra piece of denim on the inside leg and my personal preference is for this fabric to as closely match the rest of the jeans as possible. But as with all Re/Done pieces, each one is unique and should be celebrated for that! Photo: Man Repeller

Adore these super cute madewell high-rise denim shorts: button-front edition (also here and here) styled with this madewell x daryl k® ikat shirt (post on whole collab here).
Back in the day I lived in Daryl K (I still wear and adore her leather leggings today) and so it seems did Kim Gordon who stars in the campaign, along with her daughter Coco, for the new madewell x daryl k® collaboration. I particularly like the easy cool of this madewell x daryl k® sweatshirt, the madewell x daryl k® mary-lou shirt and this madewell x daryl k® jeff jean jacket.
Being a big fan of denim shorts, I have plenty of the slouchy hip hanging style (those particular ones being the One Teaspoon Rollers Denim Shorts) but have been wanting a distressed high-waisted pair for a while so decided to give these One Teaspoon Hawks Denim Shorts (some washes also on sale here), a try and they are great! Today I am wearing the One Teaspoon Phantome Hawks Denim Shorts and I also picked up these One Teaspoon Ford Hawks Denim Shorts (pictured above). You will see that although they are both called “Hawks” there is a slight difference in the detailing but the fit is the same. A couple of things to keep in mind when ordering are that they are true to size and have no stretch. Photo: One Teaspoon
Loving the rivet detail on these cool Nasty Gal After Party Vintage Rebel Jeans.
I have been looking for a higher waisted jean with a slightly flared bottom and found the H&M Jean Kick Flare Regular here at Rome. I would say it is mid height waist rather than totally high waisted (the search still continues for that) and the pair I saw are black which is a nice slightly washed out colour. They are the perfect slightly cropped length for me but saying that I am only 5ft 3 and a half.
Such a great combination – the wash, cut out detailing and fraying of this Marques Almeida Cut Out Denim Top (also here I think, looks like the same top but they have styled it one-shoulder, perhaps it can be worn both ways!) and Marques Almeida Cropped Tapered Jeans (also similar style in dark wash here) is just perfection.
