I know that in the past cropped pants haven’t been everybody’s cup of tea, but this style has had a major revamp now it has gone from an iffy-trend to a must have wardrobe item. As we slowly creep towards warmer temperatures these guys will be the perfect transitional piece in your closet.
Styling these pants can be tricky, but I think the number one rule is to watch your proportions. Unless you have got a bit of height (like me), wearing a heel is a must. Or if you want to wear a flat then opt for a pointed toe shoe like I have on. This will elongate your legs and you wont lose any height or shape. If you are still nervous then look for a pair that hits you at the skinniest part of your leg – for most women this is right above the ankle. This will guarantee you a flattering fit!
I know that pleated, metallic pink culottes might not be for everyone but there are a myriad of neutral, printed, coloured and plain options available that you really have no excuse ;).
