Madewell Skinny Skinny Crop

Saturday February 08, 2014   

I ordered the new Madewell Skinny Skinny Crop jean for 2 reasons.
1) 26” is my inseam so I thought “free hemming!”
2) I wanted a similar look & feel to my old skinny skinny ankle denim from Madewell. And that’s pretty much what I got.

At 5”1’ the crop denim hits me right at my ankles. So lovely. I repeat *I did NOT buy these thinking they’d be cropped on me* haha ;) Instead they’re perfectly hemmed for my height. The denim is also much softer, lighter, than their winter denims. It’s close to my original madewell denim but with a little more stretch worked in. I’m not complaining though because the stretch makes you look pretty good. And these also fit true to size. So taking advantage of their free shipping really paid off for me. I’m thinking of buying the darker wash in these jeans as well. Though I doubt I’ll be buying the white denim. I feel like I’m just asking for stain trouble if I buy white.

    Ahh at 5’2″ these would be perfect. I have to shorten all my pants and skirts all the time, and it’s always nice to wear supposely cropped pants, mini skirts and regular size. haha.

    I wish Madewell shipped to Australia. When I went to New York I bought a jacket and flannel shirt there.

      I’m such a roller these days. I was getting my denim hemmed a few years ago but recently quit and either roll it or have bought madewell’s zip up denim and just unzip it a bit so it’s not bunching haha

    So good to find a review about these! I’ve had these pair of jeans in mist wash in my online shopping cart for the past week, but due to my 5’2″ height, I was a little apprehensive about where it cut off at the leg.

    Loving the relaxed feel of your blog!

      Definitely cut off at my ankles. I will say that the hem is more straight legged style and not toothpick skinny jean style because it’s left a bit wide for calves but it looks tooooooootally lovely and fine just want to curtail any expectations you might have :)

    Oh man I love that lighter wash!! I have only super dark denim, I think it’s time for a shade like the one above :D

    • jenny says:

      Yeah I haven’t had any in about a year. I love my black denim but I’ve found that at some point in spring I suddenly turn on them AND JUST CAN’T WEAR THEM ANYMORE until it cools off again.

    Ooooooh good to know! I have been meaning to try their new denim since the relaunch! Free shipping really needs to be standard now days.

    I’ll admit: I am not super happy about their new denim…. however that did not stop me from buying a pair of the skinny crops during their ridiculously awesome winter sale.

    • jenny says:

      Same. I don’t understand why they can’t sell both denim types. I miss the super softness of the old denim but the new denim does look better on me. Their boyfriend cut uses a soft denim but I ended up returning mine because it was just too unflattering for my shape.
