ashion is all about rising and dropping hemlines, and when it comes to trousers, it is no different. Trending for a while now, are cropped trousers, that end anywhere between just below the calves, to just above the ankles.
The cropped pant can be a flattering piece, especially in slightly fitted styles, as it shows just a bit of skin and lets you flaunt your dainty ankles. And it also creates a very sleek silhouette because it doesn’t bunch up around the ankles like longer trousers that have not been hemmed properly.
While cropped trousers may seem like day wear, the glitterati have taken them to the red carpet, making them a versatile option for formal wear too. Sonam Kapoor, Charlize Theron and Dia Mirza wore them on casual outings, while Miley Cyrus, Sophie Choudry and Emma Watson wore them to high profile events. The trousers also cropped up (no pun intended!) on the runways of Giorgio Armani, Saint Laurant, Payal Pratap and Aneeth Arora.
This trend is not really for petite girls, as it tends to make you look shorter. But if you really want to try cropped pants, make sure they end just a little above your ankles, not higher. Alternately, wear them with heeled ankle booties or regular heels; they give continuity to the outfit and lengthen your legs.
Want to experiment with cropped pants before buying yourself a pair? Just give your regular pants a couple of neat folds and try it out.
What we love about cropped pants is that they give ample opportunity to show off your funky footwear, be it pop coloured heels or brogues with contrasting shoe laces! The only thing you need to take care of is to have well groomed feet. After all, that’s where all the attention would be.
So crop off those pants and let the cool breeze caress your skin!
