This year cropped pants have been appearing frequently on the streets of many cities around the world. It’s no wonder why calf-length jeans, or trousers have been so popular – they take style to great heights with casual comfort.
Cropped pants come in a variety of flattering styles from stretch to denim but they have a one major drawback. They are one of the hardest garments to get right in your wardrobe. Unless your legs are as long as Natalia Vodianova’s you’ll need some good tips to pull off the 7/8th length trend.
Go glam with Blake Lively
Cropped pants are all the rage these days also as a part of a Red Carpet fashion. The next time you have a night out, thing about a pair of statement-making cropped pants, instead of the traditional LBD. To do it right, follow Blake Lively’s Gossip Girl character, Serena van der Woodsen.
While filming scenes for Gossip Girl in Paris during Couture Fashion Week, Blake Lively dressed up her cobalt blue pants from Tibi with a stunning sequined Emilio Pucci blazer with strong shoulders (kind of OT: Kim Kardashian and Hilary Duff bought the same pair, not sure about the size though).
Go casual with Gwen Stefani’s cropped pants
If your office is essentially casual, think about cropped pants worn in mixed separates to fit your busy lifestyle. Thanks to their relaxed above-the-ankle style you can also wear them at the weekend with for an androgynous-chic edge. This time we’ll take tips from singer Gwen Stefani.
Gwen has been spotted multiple times out and about in New York in a pair of black and white A.L.C. Jude pants (the same pants were seen on Kristen Stewart and Sophia Bush). Gwen’s contrast waist tuxedo pants were topped with a denim vest accessorized with a pair of mustard Christian Louboutin pumps for an appropriate rock-and-roll look.
The singer certainly knows that although there are several shoe styles to match with capris, only stilettos will complement them masterfully. Therefore she paired them with boldly coloured Pigalle snakeskin pumps which added an unexpected edge to her outfit.
