Cropped pants – Are you really that short?

Fashion tip today – on this 1st of March!

I have been asked the questions by Valerine Motson from Cherry Hill, NJ –

“Is it true that cropped pants make you look shorter? I’m 5’3″ and I don’t want that!”

Well, Valerie… coming from a 5 foot woman, the answer is YES! Cropped pants can definitely make you appear shorter. Not something “short” women like to hear – especially with spring and summer upon us!

But, fear not! I’ve got one simple tip to change that — wear a heel with your cropped pants. I’m not saying you have to wear 4 inch heels (like my own mother!). Any kind of heel – big or small will give you an added look of height with cropped pants. It’s what I do ALL SUMMER LONG!

  1. I have several pairs of cropped pants – but I’m 5ft 9inches so I’ve never considered the ‘short’ thing – but, I have to say I’m beginning to wonder if we’re seeing an end to the ‘trend’ of cropped pants altogether? I was surprised to read in InStyle in March a little comment that seemed to look down on capris as a style altogether. Do you think they’re passe?

  2. I am 5’10” and feel the opposite about cropped pants. Since I have spent my entire life worried about waiting for a flood I feel like they make me look taller and lankier, not filling my clothes as I am suppose to. Could this be the case? Perhaps that self-conscious teenager is still inside and the thirty-something lady on the outside is in a haze. Should I try heels with cropped pants? Hadn’t really thought about it before. I don’t mind looking tall (good thing, huh?) as long as my clothes look like they fit me properly. Help me please . . .
