11" High-Rise Crop Flare Jeans

11" High-Rise Crop Flare Jeans is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique look, Size down I normally wear a size 25 in Madewell jeans, but since these are a true high-waisted jean, the size 25 was a bit loose around my waist. I had to size down to a 24 in order for the waist to fit my waistline. I'm glad I sized down because these jeans eventually stretched out within a few hours of wear around the waist, butt, hips, and thighs. Despite the jeans stretching out, the resulting look isn't "baggy" but instead, the look is a denim that nicely skims off the curves of the hips and thighs and eventually drapes from the knees with a delicate A-line shape. Overall, although the jean feels snug upon initial wear, I would size down because the denim will stretch out. Be sure that the waist hugs your waistline since it will expand with wear. I would purchase another one because of its unique cut, versatility with my wardrobe, and comfort, but it appears the size 24 is sold out! Please make this cut in more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love i saw these jeans in an online reviewer's instagram account and loved them immediately. Got them at Nordstromrack before they went on sale here and was crossing fingers hoping they would fit in my usual size 29. they do! in fact, they stretch out after some wear, and despite me having a curvy bottom/thighs they get somewhat loose in the hip area and 'drop-crotched' - the only thing i can complain about with regard to the fit. perhaps a belt would help. the side-view, however, is stunning, this is the most slimming pair i've owned. the quality is also superb - perfect weight, silky feel, love the length on me (not too cropped in sz.29 and i'm 5'7"). they do not look flared on me from the front, only from the side and the colour is much darker in real life. i highly recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing fit and quality I jumped on the flared jean bandwagon, and I don't know if I am getting off of it anytime soon. I am average height (5'4" - 5'5"ish) and these aren't cropped on me at all, but the flare is subtle and the high waist is very comfortable. The quality is perfect, and I went up a size because these don't have a lot of stretch. Perfect!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite jeans of all-time These are the coolest, most relaxed — and most important, comfiest — jeans I've ever had the pleasure to own. I wear them to work and on flights, lounging around the house and to painting class — unlike most jeans, I barely notice I have them on. They retain their shape beautifully. I only wish Madewell made these in more washes, I would buy them all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great jeans!! I love these jeans - they're high waisted, relaxed leg with a slight flare at the bottom. I'm normally at 25 in jeans, but the 25 was loose around my waist. Another reviewer mentioned that these stretched out, so I tried on the 24. They were a little snug, but have stretched to the perfect point. There isn't stretch in them, so I'm hoping they hold their shape, especially because I'm worried if I wash them, the hem will fray like crazy. All in all, love the cut of these jeans and very comfortable. Got them with 25% off, great deal!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as cute in person! Saw these online and thought they were cute, but wanted to try them on in store, luckily they had my size. I'm 5'11" so I was worried these wouldn't work for me since some of the cropped jeans come at an awkward length for my height. I usually have to buy full length and cut them to mimic cropped looks. They come up shorter on me than the model in picture, but I love them still. If you wear a standard inseam (30-32) they will look like the model, and if you're shorter you can cut them. The fit and wash is great! I prefer the 11" high waist on my body type. I wear between a 30 to 32 (usually 31 in high riser) in Madewell jeans depending on the fit, I have a wide hip but a small waist. I got these in a 31". Price a little high for cropped jeans but I got $20 off for bringing in an old pair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice jeans - just not for me These jeans were very comfortable - stretchy, dark denim (they looked a little darker than the photo shows). At 5'1 they were like a pair of full-length jeans, which is what I wanted. With a 28" waist & 35.5" hips the size 27 fit perfectly. Unfortunately, the jeans really did not look flared to me, perhaps because my thighs are not super-thin. They looked closer to straight leg jeans which is not what I was looking for. So back they went. They're very nice, excellent quality jeans, just not what I was looking for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not flared enough I knew I was going to buy these when I saw them in the catalog this year. I love the cropped flare leg right now. When I went to the store to try them on I was very disappointed. Maybe it was because I have thighs (as another reviewer said) but they are barely boot cut on me. I would also need to cut three inches off to make them cropped, which would diminish the flare even more. It seems like they played it safe with these jeans, resulting in an overpriced boring version of this trend. Great quality, but not flattering on me at all. I ended up thrifting a pair of flares and made my own instead, and they look way better than these did.
