Cropped Pants for Every Shape
How to ensure this ultimate summer-to-fall staple looks crisp and current on you.
Look for: Either a straight leg in a drapey fabric, such as a lightweight wool or a blend, to skim over your curves, or a pegged silhouette, if you want to show off your hourglass shape.
Avoid: Slouchy “boy” styles that are cut straight and won’t fit your curvy proportions. Watch out for side-seam pockets—they never stay shut and add to the hips.
Wear them with: “A tucked-in button-down open at the neck and with rolled-up sleeves will help point to a slim waist,” says Simon Kneen, the creative director for Banana Republic.
