Q&A: Cold Weather Shoes for Cropped Pants

February 18th, 2008

Q:  What does one wear with (more formal) pants that hit mid-calf? During the summer, flats are a logical choice, but during fall and winter, what does one wear to keep out the cold?

If you’re feeling the love for this outfit, here’s more information about it.

  Trousers that hit at mid-calf are perfect for warm weather, but they’re not as good for colder temperatures and climates.  But if you choose to wear cropped trousers during the winter, we recommend trying tall boots to keep out the cold.  Knee-length boots work well, and they’ll fully cover pants that hit at mid-calf. 

You may also want to wear another layer underneath the cropped pants–tights or leggings.  Double layering your pants will do wonders to keep you warm.

Have a great tip about cold weather shoes for cropped pants?

    Very often I can’t stand jeans and trousers any more, so, in such days I choose trousers that hit at mid-calf, the only one problem, sometimes my knees can freeze.

    To keep your knees from freezing, try wearing long underwear underneath the cropped pants and the knee-high boots. Hope that helps, Angel!

    I have a question: Is there any way you can make wearing cropped pants flattering? I have a pair in black, and a cute railroad striped one, but I can never seem to look decent in them, even though I’m kind of tall and skinny. What would you wear them with? etc. Thanks!

    Cropped pants are, by nature, a fashion challenge. The cropped hem visually shortens the length of your legs–so even if you’re tall, you don’t look as tall as you would in full-length pants. For maximum figure flattery, wear them with knee-length boots in a similar color, as pictured. Also, cropped pants tend to look better in straight-leg and skinny styles–avoid the wide-leg cropped pant look (which is scarily reminiscent of gaucho pants). Hope that helps, Jax!

    I have to say that those boots look better than my UGGS with cropped pants. I think I commit a fashion crime, but I stay warm!
