Singer Rihanna in New York City Wearing Silky Khaki Pants and Cropped Navy Vest

Trend Alert: Cool Cropped Khakis

Leave it to Rihanna to wear a sleek pair of cool cropped khakis to a business meeting in NYC — Rihanna does power dressing like no other. OK, so she's wearing a white crop top under, which could be considered unprofessional, but this is Rihanna we're talking about. This ensemb even contains a nautical nod. Sigh.These pants aren't overly trendy, and can be carried into cooler months with smart layers and cozy knits. Heels are a must for a more professional presentation, while exotic sandals take it to foreign territory. I know I've convinced myself to get a pair, have I convinced you?

Not digging these baggy-messy pants on Rhi or the whole ensemble at all! Very ill styled. The only way I like khaki is if it's relaxed cargo style. Those I dig.

Not a fan of the whole ensemble.

I'm fine with khaki when it's done properly, but this ain't it. Riri has some serious Diaper Crotch in this!

SweetFirefly, that's exactly it. It's very uniform-y. At my old catholic high school, the guys wore these terrible khaki pants in the spring/early autumn. They were pretty bad. Ever since then, I don't think I bought anything khaki. Ever.

I'm not sure why you're considering these pants sleek when they look like gappy harem pants or something. The crop top is just a no. This whole look is unprofessional to me. I don't like it. Oh and no khaki pants for me. They look like a uniform.

There's something about khaki pants that I really do not like. I just find them unflattering.
