Women Cropped Pants Outfits. Cropped jeans and cropped pants are an amazing staple to add to your wardrobe. They are comfortable, cute, and endlessly versatile. You can dress them up for formal affairs or wear them with a hoodie or tee for casual wear. Plus, they are just so stylish! So, what exactly are cropped pants? Cropped jeans or cropped pants are shorter than the normal pants. In cropped pants, the length comes above the ankles instead of going all the way down and touching the foot.
Sometimes people use the term cropped pants and capris interchangeably but there is a technical difference between the two. Capris are shorter than the cropped pants. In capris, at least half of the calves are visible if not more, but cropped jeans are longer than the capris. In cropped pants, the length is longer and the calves are covered. The second difference is the season when you wear capris or cropped pants. Capris are a summer specialty and you can wear them in the hot weather, while cropped pants are considered good to wear all through the year. Capris are more for casual wear and the crop can be considered as both formal and casual depending on what you are wearing with it.

Start with a white camisole and tuck it into a pair of light green wide-legged pants.

For ladies with thicker thighs, cropped pants might seem daunting as everyone and their mother has probably suggested to you that the only pants you can get away with are long ones. Got to lengthen those legs, am I right? But the truth is, loose cropped pants (or culottes) can be extremely flattering for ladies with thicker stems. They cover up all your trouble zones and add some graceful structure to your figure.
These colorful, flowing culottes are so beautiful and flattering. Paired with a crop top or tied-at-the-waist tank, they hit the slimmest part of the calf (right above the ankle) and when paired with sandals, do a good job of not visually cutting off the leg. The loose material gathers at the waist, highlighting your figure, and flows over the hips and thighs. They have a similar shape or feel to a long skirt, with the versatility and comfort of pants (because who wants chafed thighs, anyway?).

Petite gals have the best of both worlds when it comes to these figure-hugging cropped pants. With the right top and shoes, you can look cute and stylish without worrying that your legs are looking too stubby. Opt for a skinny fit and try them out by pairing your cropped pants with a well-tailored tunic. You don’t want too much extra fabric, as this will overwhelm your figure. Instead, opt for a blouse that visually lengthens or streamlines your torso. This could mean a detailing on the front (like in the picture) that draws the eye down or a long necklace. Open-toed sandals with a little heel will also help make the leg appear longer. For some more amazing inspiration, have a look at Petite Fashion Bloggers: Top 15 Petite Stylist to follow this Year

Dear Petite Gals, there’s no need to fear the cropped jean look!
Here is a great example of how to wear a pair of cropped jeans. Opt for high-waisted or mid-rise jeans to ensure you are visually lengthening your legs. A crop top or tucked in tee will highlight your figure. If you have a small waist, this is a great time to flaunt it! High heels are the best shoes for cropped jeans, as it’s all about looking longer and more streamlined than you actually are. This is to prevent your legs looking too stubby or worse, cut off at the wrong spot. These jeans hit just below the middle of the calf, which is a good length for a crop jean. This makes for a great summer outfit, especially if you are headed to a party!
