Cropped pants are really in style but it can be hard to find a pair that doesnâ€™t make you look like your mom. Here are some tips for looking trendy.
Go with bold colors and patterns. In the past, most cropped pants were black or some other solid color but todayâ€™s cropped pants come in an array of colors and patterns that keep you looking great. Animal prints continue to be stylish but they can be a difficult to pull off.
Cropped pants come in a variety of lengths from upper calf to just above the ankle. Most women look best when the pants are no longer than the bottom of the calf unless you have model-length legs.
Few women can pull off wide legged cropped pants. They tend to make your legs look shorter and your hips wider â€“ and who wants that? Choose a tapered look to keep the lines long and lean. Pair them with a tunic for casual or a jacket for a more tailored look.
Get the Look with Heels
While tight capris and ballet flats worked great for Audrey Hepburn, this season is all about the heels. Choose color blocked platforms for day or spikey stilettos for night.
O.k. heels are best, but who wants to wear heels to the beach, right? If you are going for a super casual look, choose tapered denim with a rolled cuff. A tank top, hoodie, and roomy tote bag will keep the look summery and fun.
