I have a love/hate relationship with cropped pants. I love the way they look but have the hardest time finding ones that look good on me! I had a bit of success with some pleated (baggier) cropped pants earlier in the year (here and here), but my closet was still in need of a good slim-fitting pair.
I took a chance and bought a couple pairs of cropped pants off Express a couple months ago when they had them on sale (although they're on sale even more right now!). I wore these babies soon after I first bought them, but it rained on my parade and I forgot to wear them up until today. So glad I finally pulled these out of hiding!
The pants fit me just shy of my ankle. While it's much longer on me than on the Express model, I actually find this length much more flattering for petites. Somehow, if the pants were actually to end around mid-calf, I think they'd just make me look like I was wearing kids' clothes!
I've decided I love these pants (and will try to wear them more often!), but I still wanna know your thoughts. What do you guys think of these slim-fitting cropped pants for petites?
