This seems to be the year of the cropped pant. It’s the one thing that can really make you look current and fresh. I wrote about wide leg cropped pants recently, which can be hard to wear, but here’s a better option.
Slim leg crop pants are more mainstream and more flattering to a wider range of bodies. I’m not talking about capris that end at the bottom your calf. The pants I’m referring to pants that are a little longer, ending a few inches above your ankle. This is a more sophisticated length than a summer capri. Here are 3 ways to style slim cropped pants.
Look #1 – DARK FLORALS
If you like a pretty lady-like look with a modern edge, then try pairing you cropped pants with a moody floral top. (More here about dark florals ) This top has a flirty peplum style that a lot of gals love because it nips in your waist and hides a small tummy pooch.
Don’t like bare arms? Then add a white jacket which always looks really chic in summer. Sexy heels (they don’t have to be this high) amp up the feminine factor.
As for the bag, it’s hard to break old habits. You might automatically reach for a plain black bag, but just look how much more interesting this print one looks. It’s got the same color and feel as the top, so works well and adds some playfulness to the outfit. Now call up you husband and ask him if he feels like going out for dinner.
