Come spring and summer, fashion designers are always ready to give us some form of cropped pants.

While I love the slim silhouette of a cigarette capri in it’s original version, can’t say that I’ve ever been a fan of the “just below the knee styles” of the last few years.  The “new crop” suits me just fine and I have jumped on this trend but in a classic way.

Knowing that cropped pants will always shorten the appearance of your leg…I opted for a high waist style to balance and lengthen.  I like the look of the self tie belt and the wide leg is so comfy for warm summer days.  These ones are from ARITZIA and I’m told they are selling fast!

Pay attention to shoes as they will be in plain view!  The new block heels will give you an edge with some height and a classic neutral pump will elongate your leg and take the look from casual to dressy. These white HALOGEN sandals are so comfortable…a great find at NORDSTROM and on sale now.

Linen trousers are limited to a few summer months or a winter holiday, but these cool wool pants can be worn all year long…thinking of them with suede boots this fall.

A secret to making this look is to keep your proportions balanced…a short cropped jacket or top will balance the cropped pant.

Black tapered leg trousers are from TOPSHOP at Hudson’s Bay and have soft front pleats.  The shoulder bag is from ALDOthey have such fun hand bag styles this spring.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
