The image of middle-aged dads on mini-scooters in cropped cargo pants almost ruined it for me. Off-putting though this crisis-laden combo maybe, the rise and rise of culottes and kick-flare jeans has taken the edge off cropped pants. Thanks then to the numerous women I’ve spotted lately looking cool in a crop (the silhouette I’ve been seeing is similar to the picture above from COS). Just add an office-ready tunic top or breezy summer shirt, flat sandals or trainers. Enlist a lightweight blazer to take things up a notch.
Where do cropped pants crop up? Jigsaw has several styles, a few of which are on sale and the wide leg feather trouser (below) has an excellent Waft Factor, ME+EM has a fine selection, Everlane has a neat wide leg crop pant and Boden sells cropped chinos and jeans.
Can you crop it?
