The Pant of Spring
Happy last day of March!
This month has positively flown by, starting off with a snow storm and ending with record high temperatures for Northwest Europe. I am certainly not complaining; I have been looking forward to these warmer days since they said goodbye back in October! I am a warm weather gal, and these summery conditions make me feel both alive and inspired.
These spring temperatures are a great opportunity to find that perfect pair of cropped pants, and this silhouette is really the cut of the season, and perhaps even the year; we will have to see how things develop! Not only are cropped wide-leg pants or culottes manically popular, the very same cut in jeans is just as big. An ode to the 80’s, the strait leg or wide leg jean with a clean or distressed hem is all you need to look a la mode for 2017, and springtime is a prime time to let your ankles go bare!
What I am Wearing
This pair of affordable, silky smooth, and breezy trousers is from Zaful, who is fast becoming a favorite for the fast-fashion addicts out there. With a slightly more shapely cut, this is not quite a culotte style, but rather a slightly strait fit with the most minimal of flairs at the sewn hem. Particularly in the black shade, you could wear this to the office or out for coffee with friends, and the high-waisted feature keeps you looking long while giving shape to this sometimes difficult-to-style cut. I prefer to wear my high-waisted items with regular-length tops tucked in, but summertime is perfect for digging out a cropped T’s and keeping life casual.
