Cropped pants and cuffed/rolled skinny jeans have been super popular recently. This is a dangerous look for petite gals as it visually cuts our legs off. Here are some tips to follow for pulling off this look:
- Always wear wedges with a cuffed or rolled hem
- Cuff it at the smallest part of your leg (typically an inch or two above your ankle) Stay far away from a cuff at your calf or right under the knee-those are no-no's.
- Try a nude wedge if you've got one, that way you are elongating your legs to combat the crop cutting them off!

Side note: These photos were self-taken behind my work. I agree the white wall was a poor choice of background but my options were limited. Also, we had a tornado warning the night before, hence the clouds. The first photos have been edited and I kind of like the white-out look. I included the last two so you could see the unedited versions. Which do you like better and/or which do you think shows the outfit more clearly?
How do you think I did? Did you participate in Two Bird's Inspiration Monday? Let me know so I can check out your take!
