How do you feel about wearing cropped pants? I'm a big fan and I know I'm not the only one. There are many advantages to wearing cropped pants. Some say that the reason why cropped pants make us look slimmer is because they showcase the thinnest part of our legs- the ankles. I've never really thought about it that way. I first started wearing cropped pants because I had problems finding the right size. So, I would buy regular pants but they would look cropped on me. I think that's the case with this pair of pants. I had this pair of ages, I wear it often but I bought it by mistake. They weren't cropped as such, it's just what happens when a girl who is 5 feet 9 buys a S size. I usually don't buy pants in small size, but this was the only pair they had and I bought it without looking at the size label and because I was wearing boots so I didn't realize they were cropped. Fast forward to today, I'm happy I bough this pair of pants. Another advantage to this particular cut is that it allows you to showcase your shoes. So, if you have a gorgeous pair of shoes that you can't wait to show to the world, cropped pants are a great choice. Today I'll share with you 3 outfits featuring one grey pair of cropped pants.
OUTFIT NO.1 Cropped pants styled with a floral ruffled shirt and chunky heels.
This floral shirt with ruffles has been my saviour for years. I always put it on when I want to add femininity to any outfit. What is more romantic than ruffles, right? I think it works well with these pants, but next time I will try tucking this shirt in. I just think that a tucked in shirt is often more flattering, especially combined with a high waist (high rise) pants. If the shoes look look familiar, it is because I've actually wore these heels (paired with these socks) (here) but I liked the combination so much that I had to repeat it.
OUTFIT NO. 2 Cropped pants worn with a red blouse and a peep toe heels
In this outfit, the grey pants are contrasted with a vibrant red blouse, but I think this combination of colours works very well. Grey is such an underestimated colour. Anyhow, here I tucked in this shirt and I think it looks better worn that way. I paired the cropped pants with peep toe heels. Supposedly peep toe heels make our legs look longer. I'm not sure if that is true, I just read it someplace. I opted for a hat because the sun was really strong that day. Perhaps I choose this one because the beige details match the ones on shoes. I honestly can't remember, but it is possible because I love to match accessories. Sometimes I like to play with unexpected colour combinations, but more often I have fun colour coordinating. How about you? Do you like colours? If yes, how do you wear them?
This is my third outfit for today. It is also my first time this year wearing sandals, and it feels good. I did wear some peep toe shoes, but that's not really the same. Anyway, besides these lovely wedges I had for ages, I paired these cropped pants with a white shirt. The shirt is tied in such a way that it looks cropped, but not much skin is showed. (Trust me, you don't want to see what my stomach looks like after resection surgery.) I did a lot of DIY work on this shirt. I first altered it and then I hand painted it. I think it looks pretty cute now.
