You Said: Yes to Cropped Pants

March 30th, 2009


skinny-cropped-jeans_032909We asked: Would you wear Cropped Pants?

You said:  Yes to Cropped Pants (barely), with a 53% to 47% vote.

Style tip? We hear you - cropped pants can be difficult to wear, especially if you’re not blessed with extra long legs.  That said, we love the breezy, laid-back style of these casual pants.  Here’s how to minimize the leg-shortening effect of Cropped Pants: (1) Wear ankle pants instead of styles that hit you at mid-calf, or (2) If you try a mid-calf style, opt for a skinnier leg fit to minimize the visual width of your legs.

Next question: It’s officially Spring, and we’re excited to wear a bunch of Spring brights, including the always-regal Purple.  But what do you think?  Would you wear Purple?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I also prefer crops with heels … offsets some of the stumpification.

    Haha I love that word – “stumpification.” And yes, heels are a great idea with crops!

    Whenever I see capris it reminds me of that all too familiar cougar mom look circa 2002. All it’s missing are a pair of wedges and a flippie razor haircut with too many highlights – Google ‘Molly Shannon’ and ‘Kath & Kim’.
    If you voted for Capris..err “Cropped pants”, I hope you find enlightenment.
