Cropped trousers will continue to be a mainstay of women’s wardrobes in 2017, but their tricky length makes them difficult to balance proportionally. A silhouette of this sort can present the unfortunate problem of making you look cut off at the ankle, which is a nightmare for the vertically challenged. Rest assured that no matter your height, cropped trousers can work for you as long as you follow Savoir Flair’s guide that demonstrates three chic and easy ways to wear them.
Roll with It
