ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sophisticated Crop

Capri pants really take me back to elementary school. This was a time when Lizzie McGuire ruled, and I wasn’t the only one who sorted through racks at Limited Too. trying to find the perfect capri pants to pair with platform flip flops. While capri pants have come and gone, they have come back again. The hemlines of pants are rising. From culottes to raw hem, cropped jeans, bare ankles are in. These new styles move away from Lizzie McGuire and towards a more sophisticated, modern approach to shorter hemlines.

This Fashionista paired a patterned jumpsuit with an elastic waist and cuffs with a pair of simple white thong sandals. She has pushed up her pant legs on a hot July day to create a shorter hemline. To gracefully combat the hot summer sun, she is wearing a pair of black, cat-eye sunglasses. For jewelry, she is wearing silver, spiked hoop earrings with a matching necklace from Poppy in Columbia, Missouri. Both her earrings and necklace are edgy, but they also compliment her sophisticated-bohemian look. This look is perfect for summer. Whether you are backpacking Europe or going out to lunch with friends, this Fashionista has the right idea.

How To: To create a similar look, pair a cropped jumpsuit with a pair of simple sandals. Don’t forget a pair of retro-chic sunglasses to protect your eyes. For jewelry, try something fun and interesting. If you are wearing a printed jumpsuit, try to wear jewelry that doesn’t clash with the print. If you are travelling or want to warm up the outfit, add a panama hat and a utility vest.
