3 Ways To Wear a Pair of Cropped Pants

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?

OUTFIT NO. 3 Cropped pants worn with a cropped shirt and wedges

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.

They're so flattering and versatile for any time of year, though especially the Spring when styling can become pretty difficult due to ever-changing weather conditions haha! I'm not surprised that first floral shirt is a longterm fave of yours - it's os beautiful! Hope you're having a fabulous long weekend so far Ivana :)

  9. Wow, you have really outdone yourself in this post! I love how you showed us how you style the cropped pants. The flares and cut bring some nostalgia to me as I used to wear something like this back in the day. I don't have this particular styling in my current closet and I'm thinking of getting me some cropped pants. I am especially taken in by the second outfit as I just love that floral shirt and the peep-toe heels on you. So chic! Also, thank you for showing us the springtime there, it's so picturesque. I hope you are feeling well and continue recovering from fever if you're still down. *smiles* <3

  12. I love the three ways you styled the trousers! I have similar problems to you being 5 foot 8.5! I do like cropped trousers-my favourite ones are some cute cat embroidered ones from Miss Patina- it is so nice to wear those-so you can benefit from the warmth but you feel liberated wearing trousers!
    The ruffled blouse is really pretty and it is very reminiscent of the blossom of the tree you are standing under!
    What was the surgery you had done exactly? You mentioned resection but I'm not sure what that is!

    1. I had to have parts of my small intestine and colon removed because of Chron disease, about half a meter altogether. The doctors just call it resection Chron surgery, I'm not sure is there any other term for it. The scar is hideous, it looks like a shark tried to have a bite of me:)!

  14. Dear Ivana, yes, for sure I'm a fan of cropped pants! Honestly, it even feels for me more strange to wear pants in normal length than cropped pants :) And I don't wear cropped pants because I'm tall like you :) Love all the 3 looks you show here. You really know how to wear cropped pants and I'm so sorry that you still see that many from your operation. Hopefully you feel nevertheless well. The handpainted shirt looks absolutely good, you can be so proud of what you have created again.
    Happy new week!
    With love from Bavaria/Germany, Rena

  21. A nice showcase for the versatility of cropped pants. All three outfits looks so chic. I'm a fan of cropped pants not so much for the slimming effect but for the lengthening effect ;p

  22. Your outfits with the cropped pants look very stylish, dear Ivana! I like them all very well - on YOU! (My favorite outfit is number 2) I absolutely don't like it myself in such pants. I have short legs and unfortunately I can not wear shoes with high heels ....
    Hugs my dear!

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
