Cropped pants - Chinos in the 7/8 style are absolutely in trend!
Pants of all kinds of lengths have been popular over the last couple of years. From short shorts to three-quarter jeans up to the full length, we’ve seen it all. In spring 2017, 7/8 or “cropped” pants make a statement in our wardrobes! Why do we love them so much? Not too cold for the first days of spring, not too warm for mild summer evenings and always super stylish. They are the ideal piece of clothing for spring and summer.
Casually rolled up cropped pants give us with that summer feeling that we have been waiting for so long. Once we see them, we immediately get a dreamy expression, reminiscing for walks along the seafront at dawn, cool cocktails in front of us and enjoying the Dolce Vita. No wonder, as the cropped pants trend originally emerged in Italy.
It is their unique cut which makes these pants so interesting. They are a little shorter – 7/8 length in technical jargon. These pants are also not as skinny, so they don’t fit quite as snug as many of their predecessors. Brands like Kr3w or Volcom have recognised the trend and have added that special, “amore” to their designs for you. The man of today follows the summer trend of 2017 with bare ankles.
A few things are to be kept in mind when styling cropped pants. Natural fabrics, clean cuts and muted colours round off the trend. The right shoes are essential, as the pants will draw attention to your feet. Casual sneakers with stylish socks which we can catch a glimpse of complete the look.
