Review: Levi’s Women’s Mid Rise Skinny Crop Jean


Hunting may be a controversial topic, but no one minds tracking down unicorns, right? The perfect pair of cropped, ultra skinny white jeans have thus far eluded me. I’ve tried on close to a dozen pair now, and none have the magical 26″ inseam this short girl seeks. I have even picked up a few way out of my budget in hopes they would be the ideal cropped length.

So far, the only ones that look close to what I want are way out of my price range: we’re talking $100+ for a pair of Paige Verduro crops. That’s not going to happen, no matter how silky the mane of said unicorn may be. And although these Levi’s aren’t what I am looking for now, they might just be what you need.

I found these on my favorite shopping site, Why do I love Amazon? Prime. It’s Prime love all day long, baby. That two-day free shipping has me spoiled like a Disney princess. Amazon has thousands of white jeans popping up in a search, but very few match my requirements: about $50, mid-rise, white, cropped.

I have a pair of Levi’s ultra skinny style jeans that I *love*. I figured these would be a similar fit, and they are. The best part of these? They aren’t see through on me. I tried them on with black underoos without trouble! While this pair doesn’t have nude pockets (oh, nude pockets!), the denim is thick enough to hide my ripples or dimples, which is nice.

Though the waist may be gappy on a more hourglass figure, these fit my postpartum body pretty well. The denim isn’t the softest I’ve felt, but it doesn’t feel cheap or low quality and would probably soften up in the wash. The length was fair on me but too similar to a pair of Kut from the Kloth white skinnies I already own — and my unicorn is a bit stubbier than this.

If the legs were tighter and the hemline shorter, these would have been a great find for a pair of cropped white denim. Since I already own a similar pair, I am returning these. But if you don’t have a pair of white jeans yet and your calves are a bit larger than mine, these might be an excellent deal for you! Now on to the review.
