I am in love with cropped pants this spring; especially a cropped pant in a fun, eye-catching print. I find a great cropped pant shows off the ankle, and is versatile to wear with either flat shoes (i.e. loafers or ballet flats) or heels (I like to wear my cigarette trousers with a fabulous stiletto).

The great thing about cropped pants? You can wear them in your work environment, and the pants can be easily transitioned to something you can wear out on the town in the evening. Switch up your shoes, add some funky jewelry, and youâ??re set!

Donâ??t be scared of wearing a bold printed trouser. Paired with a crisp collared shirt, and a neutral colored blazer, the pants become the center of attention while remaining professional.

A couple tips before diving head first into a pile of cropped pants: if you are petite, stay away from baggy styles, as these tend to shorten as opposed to lengthening legs. Another tip? If you have short legs, avoid cropped pants with a cuff, as this makes calves look bigger. Lean towards a straight pair with a simple hem.
