Fashion Forward: Cropped Pants
Sunny one day, rainy the next - this time of year, South Florida can be challenging on your wardobe. But it is possible to have clothes for any attire and any occasion. In tonight's fashion forward, Shireen Sandoval is spilling one of spring's biggest secrets.
WSVN -- This season, it's all about getting a cut above the rest. If you want to try something fun and funky, go for a little extra lift.
Monica Hall from Steam: "Right now it's cropped pants and cropped jackets, really hot, really sexy."
At Steam on South Beach, pants are creeping up the leg and getting cinched right in the middle of the calf.
Pair 'em with a cool cropped jacket, some rugged ruffles and you've got something very sassy.
Still want to make a statement - try an embroidered jacket in lots of different colors.
Monica: "You can mix and match. Before it was all about matching, now it's all about having fun and being colorful."
At Bloomingdales they say the cropped jacket is the easiest way to get the look of the moment.
Allison Bass from Bloomingdales: "If you could buy one new item this spring it would be the cropped jacket."
Whether your looking for business casual with a twist, daytime with a flare or even something to wow them on the weekends, it's essential to get cropped for spring.
Allison: "You can wear the cropped jacket from work to weekends, it's a very refined look."
Jean jackets take on a whole new look paired with tunics and capris. Boring blazers now scream with style. You can even update that fall look too.
Allison: "You could wear a pair of denim cropped pants with your jacket that you had from last fall."
And top it off, this seer-suckered silhouette is sure to flatter just about any figure.
Allison: "The cropped jacket adds shape and it's a really fitted look."
When you are buying cropped pants, pretty much anything goes in terms of length. When you're looking for a jacket, make sure it's cinched in at the waist so it'll add shape.
