Cropped bottoms are a growing style trend and have been all over the spring runways. Cropped jeans and the cropped variation of the cargo are very in right now and feel fresh and new. Unfortunately, this trend can look dated if not done right.
Incredibly popular right now are the new variations on the cargo pant. They come in lots of different fits and styles, but one of our favs is the J Brand Modern Flight Pant in Vintage Pendleton (pictured above). The loose fit of this pant is great for those who are pear shaped. The loose fit of the calf area evens out the top with the bottom and gives an overall flattering fit.
7 For All Mankind Maritime Crop Jeans (pictured above) is better suited for you making your legs look proportional and shapely. A wide cut will only make your legs look scrawny.Those with shorter legs are also best suited with a straight cut. This close cut through the calf will elongate and slim the leg. A nude heal will also help in this department as it tricks they eye into thinking the leg is longer.
If you have heavy calves, you can still work this trend. Just insure the crop hits at the smallest part of your calf as this is where the visual focal point will be. The smallest part of the leg will tend to be right above your ankle as you can see the 7 For All Mankind Josephina Boyfriend Jeans In Hazine (pictured above) hits just at the perfect spot.
Wondering what to wear with this cropped style, a flowing top is very of the moment. Chose a peasant top, loose tee, or ruffles. A jacket or blazer can be worn over the top and will perfectly nip in the waist. Shop more styles at ShopVelvetHanger.com
