New season, new length: we take a look at our favourite cropped denim.

There's a bit of a paradox in this season's denim offering. On one hand, the bootcut is espousing a bohemian revival of last season's flare. On the other hand, cropped denim has become the ultimate Spring-time staple. You've probably seen the shortened jean pop up in 7FAM stores and even on your Instagram feed but if you're still not on board, it turns out you're long overdue to give them a try! Will you be investing in the distressed, skinny,  boyfriend or the cropped boot? Will you be throwing on a pair of cropped overalls or hitting the sun in crisp white denim? Either way, 7FAM have got you covered! We're rounding up our favourite styles so you can wear cropped denim with confidence.

Lengthening and flattering, the classic bootcut enters new lengths for the warmer season. The fresh retro 70s style looks great with a sporty crop top and platform shoe, but for elevated casual appeal, opt for luxe knitwear and a sophisticated pump.

Match denim to your cropped denim for a dash of panache. The 80s go-to style is given a contemporary spin with a streamlined silhouette. Anh from 9 to 5 Chic offers a Downtown LA vibe by teaming her 7FAM denim with an oversized jacket while Shalice Noel opts for a slightly undone fitted shirt.

The idea of cropped denim can be quite scary. The length is often deemed unflattering especially if you're petite or super tall. It can be challenging to find a flattering cut but luckily, 7FAM's frayed hem finds the perfect balance. Falling just above the ankle, it's the perfect accompaniment to directional boot as seen on Blank Itinerary (above).

 Wider styles may be trending but skinny jeans remain a classic. Amp up the silhouette with a distressed denim cut just above the ankle. Accentuating all the right curves, we like to add a little length with an unexpected mule but for dress down Fridays we pair our cropped skinnies with a classic sneaker.
