Cropping Up! : A Look at the Cropped Pant Trend

Back-to-school is almost here and that means fall fashion is in full effect. While the fashion world is already onto fall styles, the steamy summer temperature says otherwise for the rest of us. It’ll be a tad bit longer before we will be wearing sweaters and full-length pants. In the meantime, it doesn’t hurt to start shopping for the newest items of the fall season.

This is where cropped-pants and their analogous shorter-hemmed counterparts are prime transitional pieces from summer to fall. You can wear your cropped bottoms with a sexy sandal and tank now; then add a cardigan and booties for fall. Crops are coming back in a big way this season so you’ll be able to find a pair in your favorite style and fabric. A few tips to look your best in your crops… First, make sure that your cropped pants hit you right at the skinniest part of your leg which is generally at your ankles. Additionally, your crops are going to be best paired with a cropped jacket or top for a balanced look. However, a sleeveless long vest wouldn’t look too bad either with your favorite crops.
