The Cropped Jean
I have always loved to wear cropped pants so I am super excited that cropped jeans are a major trend. Actually, to me, the cropped ankle length has never gone out of style and wears like a classic. I’m zeroing in on jeans because so many of us live in them, but the cropped ankle length looks great in any pant.
For all of you on the shorter side that succumb to the belief that cropped pants make you look shorter -I believe, if the pant hits right at the ankle and is a slim fit they won’t – I included a pair of striped, cropped Current Elliot’s that elongate the leg making you seem taller. This Spring/Summer they come in a plethora of colors and a variety of rinses to fit everyone’s palette preferences.
If you are a little nervous about investing in the cropped jean, there are many jeans out there at reasonable and low price points – Express, For Ever 21, The Gap, Lucky Brand etc.. Another great way to teat drive the cropped jean is to cuff a pair of skinny jeans to the ankle or above, or cut off a pair you already own (I’ve done this to older styles of mine) and not be out-of-pocket.
