How to Wear Cropped Pants

Week 2, Day 11 of No Jeans January

Are you ready for Style Girlfriend’s second-annual No Jeans January challenge? Good. Us too. All month we’ll be throwing down the gauntlet: 31 days, no jeans, game on. Each week, we’ll focus on a jeans-free alternative and share daily outfit inspiration

A few sleeps ago (ahem, four months’ worth of sleeps ago), Gabi highlighted what turned out to be a pretty polarizing pant: the cropped trouser. Although the ladies of Style Girlfriend have nothing-but-love for this intentionally shorter trouser, we can see how you’d want to avoid a look that’s dangerously similar to the accidental high-water pants of the past.

Until now OKAY. The key to nailing this style? A purposeful fit. And by that, we mean a cropped trouser with a slightly tapered leg and a rising hem between one to three inches. Pairing this pant with a casual outfit will take some of the “is this office appropriate?” pressure off while leaving room to branch out into a trendy-meets-classic vibe.

How to wear cropped pants on-the-go:

Trousers: Vince, $265 | Bomber jacket: Topman, $150 | Tee: Champion, $38

Socks: Gap, $8 | Shoes: Clarks, $79 | Duffel bag: Uri Minkoff, $150

WHY LADIES LOVE THIS LOOK:

“Y’all thought we were gonna let you forget about our love of cropped trousers? You’re not getting off that easy.”
