Can you wear cropped pants in winter? Of course you can! And here are some ideas on how to do it.
Wilfred Jumpsuit / Julio long-sleeved top (old) / Vince booties – similar
This jumpsuit was one of my end-of-year sale buys. I love the basket-weave fabric which gives it a sort of retro feel. I also love the silhouette, because it draws attention to my curves in a good way. Woohoo!
This piece will undoubtedly look wonderful in warmer months without any layers and a pair of mid- to high-heeled sandals. But in the meantime, I’m grateful that I can wear it now. With just a long-sleeved shirt underneath – or turtleneck – and a pair of booties, it’s instantly winterized.
I took this photo shoot in California, by the way, during and in between rain showers. (Oh, how I love a challenge!) I took some shots at our Santa Cruz home with Mark’s and my “Bubble” mural of mirrors in the background; I took others at the yacht harbor – so peaceful! And I wasn’t freezing to death! Back in Seattle, I’d wear it with a short cardigan (to show off the jumpsuit’s cinched waistline) and a long coat.
And notice I’m not wearing any jewelry? I forgot to pack it on this trip. Oops! Thank goodness, I’m a minimalist. The look still works, in my opinion.
Now you might be wondering:
What are other ways to wear cropped pants in winter?
- With booties as shown above
- With fitted boots as I did here
- With sneakers or oxfords, leaving a few inches of skin visible below the pant – and layer layer layer up top!
- If they’re narrow-legged, with the hem skimming the top of your booties
- With fun, chunky socks and a block-heel shoe
Here are extra flattering ways to wear cropped pants if you’re curvy like me:
- With narrow-toed shoes, preferably block-heeled
- If going for fun socks, stick with socks in a medium weight and similar tone to that of the pants
