5 Days, 5 Ways: Cropped Trousers

Cut (to) the Crop

You know how I tell you guys to roll your pants up in at least one outfit every week? What if I told you I found a pair of pants that didn’t need to be cuffed, a pair of pants that already did the ridding of unnecessary fabric bunching, a pair of pants that coolly let your ankles breathe? Well, I did, and it’s the cropped trouser.

While it’s easy to see a cropped trouser and think, “hey, that looks like when I had weird growth spurt in 7th grade,” it won’t look that way on if you’re wearing them right – a slightly tapered fit makes the crop look intentional. Not only will a cropped trouser visually lengthen your legs, but it also keeps you accountable for your #sockgame.
