Petite Styling Tip #6: Petites CAN Wear Cropped Pants

 So, I’ve read that petites are supposed to avoid cropped pants like the plague.   They supposedly make us look stumpy and frumpy. And no one wants to look like that. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

But, the cropped pants as a shirt gal’s NO-NO, well, I think that’s just a bunch of crap. Why shouldn’t petite girls wear whatever our teeny little hearts desire? It’s hot outside and lightweight cropped pants are great for work and play during the summer. Petite gals shouldn’t have to forego summer fashion trends because we are vertically challenged. 

The key is to find a cut and fit that works. One that won’t shorten our frame anymore than it already is! The cropped pants should be fitted, and hit right at the ankle for the longest, leanest look. Paired with pointed toe heels, cropped pants are a winning look for the petite gal.    

Pants: Ann Taylor Petite Modern Piped Ankle Pant, Dark Sky, 00P. 

Top: H&M Jersey Tank Top, Yellow/Patterned, XS.
