I’m a big fan of a shorter hem. Whether it’s very slight and hits at the ankle or cropped like these trousers I’m wearing from Ann Taylor, cropped trousers elongate the legs, and show off your shoes at the same time. These pants are actually supposed to hit at the ankle but I bought them in petite so they’d be a bit shorter. I wanted them to hit above these tassel lace up sandals. A great option for work and the perfect way to update your style for spring, cropped trousers are a nice alternative to a dress or skirt when you just wanna wear pants (me all the time). I rounded up 5 super cute pairs for spring and they are all under $100 (scroll down for my picks). A shopping tip, if you’re 5’6″ and under you can experiment with petite sizing for a more cropped fit.
