Fall 2012 Fashion Trends: Wide-Leg Cropped Pants

The Season's Best New Crop

View in slideshow

With classic trouser detailing, amped-up shapes, and jaunty above-the-ankle lengths, this season's wide-legged cropped pant might just be the most spirited way to experiment with fashion's new proportions. From Derek Lam to Max Mara, the Fall 2012 runways were teaming with the look, and judging by its prominence in the Resort 2013 collections (Carven, Alexander Wang) — not to mention its popularity among some of our favorite street-style regulars — it seems this pant is bound to stick around for a little while longer. Keep it chic by pairing yours with shrunken jackets and fitted knits — and don't forget the heels.
