Spring Peek: Cropped Pants
Spring Peek: Cropped Pants

If anything stood out on the Spring runways it was the new pant styles. Harem, bermuda, pedal pusher, leggings, rolled, tailored — we witnessed them all. As someone who has always been keen on cropped pants — what better way to show off your Fab shoes? — I am psyched.

I know what you're thinking shorter-than-thou ladies, and 'tis not true; you too can get in on this fresh trend. Just add some heels (wedges are cute here) for height and keep your silhouette loose and lean and you'll actually appear that much taller. The real beauty is there are so many styles to choose from and you can create looks from items you already own.

My favorites are these cool gray scrunched leggings from the slick Celine runway, Derek Lam's simple black slims, and, for drama's sake, McQueen's yellow harem pants.

To see more of my favorite cropped pants of Spring,

I actually hate cropped pants - I think you have to have no hips and I thankfully do have them...

I agree that they make you look shorter and I'm 5'7 with legs longer than my 6 foot tall dad.

I'm with shmoo15, I look stumpy in cropped pants (5'3"). Especially since I'm kind of pear shaped.

Meh. I think cropped pants make girls my height (5'2") look stumpy. I was glad to see the capri trend go and don't think I'll be partaking in its return.

As a short chick, I rock cropped pants with heels and wedges, never flats. I like the extra height.
