Show a little skin

15 Jul

Do you do capris at the office?

I love wearing a cropped pant when I’m in the in the mood to show a little ankle. The Mini Pant picture above from JCrew is one of my favorite styles. The longer length and slender cut make these pants positively sophisticated. When worn with heels (particularly nude heels as seen in these photos), they actually elongate your legs rather than break them up as some capris can.

Here are our top four office pretty capris (in no particular order):

  1. JCrew Mini Pant, $138 (pictured above)
  2. Gap Slim Crop Pant, $24.99
  3. Talbots Straight Leg Crops, $89 (isn’t the red smashing?)
  4. Kate Spade Hallie Pant, $275 (pictured below)

I know that slim cut pants like these can be intimidating, so focus on finding a pair that is structured, made from quality fabric that holds its shape throughout the day, dark in color and a flattering fit in the back (i.e. no gaping around the waistline in the back). Don’t try to squeeze into slim pants that are a size too small, buy the correct size and you will look thinner – I promise.
