How to Style Cropped Wide-Leg Pants

Happy March 1st, ladies! I know it’s not officially spring until March 20th, but in my mind, March 1st is the unofficial start, and I’m ready for some spring. One of the spring trends this year is the cropped wide-leg pants. I found a pair at Old Navy, and they’re 25% off.

If you want to try this spring trend, here are some tips on how to wear them:

1. Length of the pant– Cropped wide-leg pants come in various lengths but look best approx 2″ above your ankle bone.

2. Choose the right top or blouse– When it comes to the right tops to wear, you want to balance the wide-leg pants out with a more fitted top. Having something tucked in will also provide a slimming effect.

3. Wear Heels– If you are wondering what shoes to wear with crop wide-leg pants, heels look best. As much as we love our flats, they are not as flattering with wider-leg pants. It doesn’t have to be a high heel, but a bit of height does wonders to elevate a look and make you appear taller and slimmer.

When choosing a shoe color, a shoe the same color as your cropped pants will elongate your look. A shoe in a contrasting color will make your legs look shorter, so take that into consideration when choosing your shoe.

  1. Remind me how tall you are. I really like those pants but stuff like this never seem long enough. I’m 5’7″ and I never really pay attention to inseem lengths I get but just measured floor to crotch 32″

    1. They are cute on you. But, I could never pull those off. I am 5’4” and the cropped wide leg makes me look even shorter and wider. Not a good look for me. I can pull off the wide leg if they are full length pants, but the cropped ones, nope.

  2. I really don’t like the wide leg crops. Of course, I’m older so guess that’s why. Love your blogs. Thanks for giving us style and nourishment for our souls.

  3. I love them! And I see what you mean about a small heel. The model in the picture has sneakers and they don’t look as nice. Very cute!

  4. I really don’t care for wide legged crops either. I do love cropped jeans and pants though. My legs are shorter than my torso so I need to always length my line with high waisted- being petite is hard! ha! You look amazing in those wide legged crops though!

  5. Cindy,
    I am 5’7″ with a thin build but wide hips. My rear is the largest part of my body. Will this pants style accentuate my wide hips?
    Thanks for honest opinions ☺️

  6. I like the wide leg crop, but would not have pick these if I was just looking at Old Navy’s site. They look so much better on you. Yes, best with a heel. Great price for trying a new trend. I would need to go in store to try on different sizes and I’m sure I’d take the petite length. I like the variety of outfits you showed on how to style them.

  7. Wellll, since you asked, I really don’t care for wide leg cropped pants. I think they make anyone’s legs look odd. Also, although they do look best as you style them, to my eye, they don’t look right with dressy OR casual shoes. But, that’s me…I guess that’s why God made us all different, right? 🥰

  8. I am not a fan of wide-legged crop pants. Maybe because I’m tall, and I’ve had my share of “high-waters” in my time; just not a look I can get my mind around.
    Going to pass on these…but I love the brown sling backs you wear with them!!!

  9. To put it nicely, I don’t care for the wide leg cropped pants either! I’m a 5’1, 140 lb 65 year old Who wants to look as slim and trim and in style and up-to-date as possible. That’s one of the reasons why I have been a faithful Cyndi follower for years. I love and emulate a lot of your style. But the last couple of years I can’t stand the oversized, frumpy/dumpy looking styles! short people have to be extremely careful not to wear things that cut off our legs and make us look shorter, or oversized clothes that make us look dumpy. Also, for many of us, seniors heels are no longer an option, so finding styles that look good with flat or low heels is important. I love your daily posts! I get so many great ideas 🙂 keep up the good work, and keep your eyes on Jesus! He is our reason for living!

    1. Not a fan of this style & certainly at this point 8n life don’t plan to wear heels except to a formal affair! You look wonderful in everything…enjoy your day!

  10. Those are a no for me. The new style of pants are just not cute at all. They look heavy and frumpy. I’ll pass on these!

  11. I have to agree with the previous person. I have tried on the wide leg pants both cropped and full length. You look fabulous, but on someone who is not a 4 or 6, the look is not good.

  12. Thank you for today’s Beauty for the Heart. As someone who lost our only child to suicide December 27, the passage about hope really spoke to me. I’m going to screenshot it, and refer to it often.

    1. Susan, I am so very sorry for your loss! I don’t know the pain of losing a child, and I pray that I never do. However, my first husband took his life, and his brother did as well. Depression is a disease that is so heartbreaking. I too will be praying for you. God bless you and keep you with comfort and peace.

    2. Susan…..When I read your comment, I just got sick to my stomach that you had to go through this. My friend lost her son to suicide 4 yrs. ago. I walked that journey with her….devastating. I will stop right now and pray for you.

    3. Susan, May our Heavenly Father give you and your husband peace that surpasses all understanding. Praying

    4. Susan,
      I am so very sorry to hear this. I lost my son to suicide 3 years ago. It is a hard road to walk- cling to the Lord! He is close to the broken hearted and walks through the valley of shadow with us.🙏🙏🙏

  13. Not a fan of the pants your showing today.. as others have said, I personally think that style is for a narrow few of the over 50 ages.. I could never pull these off, I have skinny legs and ankles and these hit me in th exact wrong spot.

  14. I have a pair of jeans that length and really like them. I like it when you style an outfit several different ways. I will have to try those pants.

  15. I have similar pants from Gap. They called them girlfriend utility. I really like them. Thanks for showing us these. I am going to look into ordering them. They would make good summer pants since they aren’t tight and I like they are high waisted too.

    I like the pants and they look great on you. I guess I am the oddball here. I gravitate toward these new styles because it’s refreshing to see new pant styles besides skinnies. Love beauty for the heart. I have a wall decoration with the word hope.

  16. I like all the looks you styled today. Thank you for styling the pants with three different blouses. I have a pair of brown wide leg crop pants from last fall. Do you think they would look ok for spring and summer, or would the brown make them look too fallish?

  17. Love, love ,love your tips today with wide leg pants. All three outfits are adorable and would be easy to replicate. Thanks for sharing.

  18. Love wide leg crop pants!!! I bought the Meg wide leg Kut from Kloth pants you styled over a year ago from Evereve and wear them all the time….so cute!!!

  19. The wide leg pants are so cute! I bought the Meg wide leg Kut from Kloth pants you styled over a year ago from Evereve and wear them all the time!

  20. Super cute! I bought the Meg wide leg Kut from Kloth pants you styled over a year ago from Evereve and wear them all the time!

  21. Hi Cyndi,

    I’m not a fan of these cropped pants. I’m a little thicker through my hips and legs and they just look all wrong on me. Liked the shoes you styled though.

  22. I’m 76 and I love these pants. If you live in the DFW area starting May 15 anything that will “catch some wind” is great. I have a pair of these like others here have said from your past posts. They are great to cover the body when heat is over 85.

  23. I’m obsessed with this style! I bought three pair of high waisted cropped jeans from Judy blue last season and they are my favorite. I am so happy that you are showing options for how to style them.

  24. I’ve always loved the cropped style & can’t wait to try these with a wider leg. I think they look great with so many different shoe styles.

  25. I very much appreciate the kind comments, and most of all, the prayers. We have been blessed with much love, and support. It is heartbreaking how many have been touched by suicide. Many in our town, and sadly, many young people.

  26. I so appreciate the kind comments, and most of all the prayers. We have been very blessed with much love, and support. It is heartbreaking how many have been touched by suicide. Many in our town, and many young people.
