Another absolute essential in a girl’s closet: cropped pants. Cropped pants will never have to make a comeback because it is a timeless piece that will always remain in style. This colour blocked outfit stood out amongst a sea of people wearing black, during this time of the year, everyone it certainly is quite refreshing to see someone who is not dressed in duller colours here in Melbourne.

This Fashionista paired her light green blouse with the cropped pants, a cardigan and topped things off with a thin belt. That is what is so great about the pants, it is versatile in so many ways. This Fashionista may have decided to keep it casual that day, but a simple change of shoes and accessories will easily set her up for a dinner party or a smart-casual event.

As with most clothing, cropped pants range from high to low prices. I have my eyes set on this gorgeous, dark red pair from Isabel Marant, it is made of 100% lambskin leather, hence the relatively exorbitant price. I imagine it would go perfect with this Miso Mesh Peplum Top I recently bought from Republic.

However, if you are after something more affordable, check out the Factory Skimmer Pant in modern red from J. Crew. Or play on the safe side with this navy pair from Dorothy Perkins. As for the cardigan, Cotton On has never failed me! You would think that their extremely reasonably priced goods would wear thin after awhile right? Wrong. I have had my cardigan for about a year now, and it still has not worn out! So play around and have fun. With cropped pants, there are endless possibilities.
