It’s time for another Shop Your Closet! These are my favorite posts because I think it’s important for the pieces in one’s wardrobe to be able to work for a variety of situations. I saw these ruffled crop pants, and I thought they would be a great pair of pants for casual Fridays at work.
My firm doesn’t allow us to wear cropped pants except on casual days, so I knew that this would limit how often I could wear them. I decided that if I were going to get these pants, I needed to come up with some other ways to wear them, and I soon realized that they would be great for date nights, casual looks, and a lot more. Here are a few of the ideas that I created by shopping my closet!
Since I had originally envisioned these pants for work, I decided to create a modern take on spring suiting for the first styling.
I wanted to do a twist on the basic black suit, white button-down shirt combo by incorporating extra details like the ruffled crop, and the pleated peplum on the blouse.
I completed the graphic look with white earrings and mules and a black and white clutch.
For a simple evening look, I paired the crops with sandals and an off-the-shoulder floral blouse. This look is ultra-feminine, but it doesn’t feel too sweet and precious. I added dramatic beaded tassel earrings and a faux fur purse for a fun touch.
These pants are named after fellow petite plus blogger Jaye of Style Over Size, so I decided to create a look inspired by Jaye’s style.
I gave these girly crops a more casual streetwear vibe by pairing the pants with a knotted t-shirt, bomber jacket, and comfy sneakers.
This look was the most out of my comfort zone, but I was surprised by how much I liked it.
For a casual summer look, I may also try pairing these crops with some flat sandals, a simple top, and a straw bag.
