5 Basic Items Women Over 40 Wear With Cropped Jeans

Age is literally just a number, and in no way should the year you were born influence any of your style choices. But we do turn to women over 40, in particular, for some of those expert outfit ideas given their top-notch experience with sartorial trial and error over the years. In fact, we recently covered the simple summer items this set (among others) wear on repeat. And today, we wanted to spend a little time showcasing the summer basics women over 40 are wearing with cropped jeans. After all, it’s this denim cut that’s entering the spotlight even more as the temperatures start to warm up.

To highlight said items, we scrolled through the Instagram accounts of some of our favorite over-40 influencers to uncover those chic cropped denim ensembles. Below you’ll find a few outfit ideas featuring easy pieces that team flawlessly with the jean silhouette. (Although, these items would really work with just about any denim style.) And if you’re currently shopping, there is also a range of product recommendations coming your way.

Striped Blouse

A striped blouse is classic yet playful and works nicely with any denim silhouette, including cropped jeans for an easy vibe.

White Shirt

The white button-down shirt is trending right now, but it will also remain a classic wardrobe staple. Go for a standard cut or a modern silhouette featuring a tie detail or an oversize shape with your cropped jeans.

Tank Top

The tank top is basically reigning supreme as one of the top wardrobe basics in any fashion person’s wardrobe. Use one as a base layer like with this denim ’fit, or wear on its own for a simple yet chic look.

Checked Blazer

If you need a sophisticated vibe, don’t underestimate the power of a checked blazer in a slouchy cut with a T-shirt and cropped jeans. It's a no-fail outfit formula that just works.

Printed Tee

Keep it easy and cute by pairing a printed or graphic tee with your jeans.
