It's time for cropped trousers!

It's the perfect time of year for wearing cropped trousers, and they are all over the high street this season. They are ideal when the weather starts to get warmer and you want a change from wearing jeans all the time, but you're not quite ready to bare more than your ankles! They will take you from spring through to summer, and are both practical for the school run with flats or chic for work with an elegant pair of heels.

Here are some of my favourites:

Boden Bistro Crop Trouser Summer Floral


Boden do cropped trousers so well, they are actually my favourite. The Bistro crops featured below are particularly flattering and so comfortable. I adore the green floral print above, and love how they have styled it with a simple tee and sandals. I also really like the neutral bud print in the same trousers below - very versatile, it would be easy to dress them up and down.

Boden Bistro Crop Trouser Neutral Bud £59


The Bistro crop trousers are also available in some stunning colours, and in basics such as black, white and dark navy, which would be perfect for the office. The white pair below would be perfect to take on holiday:




Moving on to some fun and fabulous printed versions from Zara - these fruit print ones are crazy but I LOVE them (not with the matching top though! I quite like the idea of dressing head to toe in one print, but not this print!) Loving the trews though:

Zara Fruit Print Trousers £29.99



I'm really drawn to yellow at the moment and these printed trousers, also from Zara, are such a statement. I would wear them with a knit and sneakers on cooler days and a tee and sandals when it gets warmer.

Zara Printed Trousers £29.99



Also from Zara, these geometric print trousers are very eye-catching and offer your outfit a retro edge:

Zara Printed Trousers £35.99


Everyone knows by now how much I love the monochrome look and I think I would get so, so much wear from these Aztec inspired, printed capri trousers by Mint Velvet. 




I also like the bold tile print of the Mint Velvet trousers below and I LOVE the matching top with them - it really works with this print!




And finally if you like stripes, this cropped pair of trousers by White Stuff would look stylish with a classic white shirt for work, but just as good for an off duty look at the weekend or on holiday:




Finishing with me today in an outfit I wore to work:



Maison Scotch Breton Long Sleeve Tee -SS13
White Vest - Boden SS13
Boyfriend Jeans - True Religion
Statement Necklace - Zara
Ballet Pumps - Topshop

Hopefully back tomorrow with my bargain item of the week!

  2. I love your' Maison Scotch breton. I am feeling the love but I have yet to purchase. I have to be careful about trousers and jeans shortening my legs even more (long body short leg syndrome) but I do love the look of them. H x

    1. You're right, you do have to be careful with cropped trousers - the slimmer the fit better I think!

  9. Some lovely choices Abbi - I do love a cropped trouser but tend to stick to skinny styles because I am little. If I try the baggier ones I'd probably have to wear them in the evenings with heels.

    Mint Velvet are great for me, as I know their sizes come up quite small, I totally love the printed ones and will no doubt invest at some point.

    Love your Maison Scotch Breton and statement necklace - lovely outfit.
