Cropped (leather) pants, comfy shoes, plain tank or tee, and a sharp black blazer - I fell in love with this silhouette after seeing versions by The Row and Theyskens Theory. I have a feeling this will be my uniform this spring.
I bought these leather pants during theoutnet.com's clearance sale. $39 for genuine leather pants was such an irresistible deal I bought two pairs and had no qualms chopping about a foot off these to make them the perfect cropped length. The small strip of cloth along the inside calf makes them slim but not skin-tight as it tapers toward the bottom, which is exactly the shape I was going for. I'm not sure what to do with the second pair - I might turn them into flared cropped pants or hold off until the next trend in pant length reveals itself.
