If you're sick of your skinnies and the fickle weather has discouraged you from wearing shorts, why not go for something in between? Top designers must have known the forecast when they were designing this season's staples as cropped pants were all over the spring runway. Etro showed a bouquet's worth of floral cropped trousers, where Balmain opted for both leather and lace and Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti played with stripes. The crop is an ideal pant for the office, where A/C or demure dress codes can require more covering up.
Pair your pair with a blazer and buttoned-up shirt or lightweight knit for the office or show skin in a slinky tank or crop top for the weekend and strut the streets like a street style darling. Browse eight pairs we spied just begging to become part of your summer uniform.
