Curvy Girl Challenge: The Cropped Trouser


As a girl with curves, finding the right pair of pants is a challenge in itself, let-alone ones that rival runway trends.

One of Spring’s hottest pant-styles is the cropped trouser, but is the silhouette curvy-friendly?  Definitely!

New York & Company Sateen Cropped Pant, $36.95

After searching in-person, online, and even in a friend’s closet, you can imagine my excitement when I came across a perfect day-to-night, tapered at the ankle, cropped sateen pant, complete with draw-string waist.

Paired with my Egyptian Goddess heels and ethnic inspired accessories, this cropped trouser ensemble is everything I hoped it would be- stylish, comfy, and extremely versatile.

But still, the question remains: how many pairs did I have to try on before finding these? Seven.

Taking the time to find the perfect pair that flatter my curves in the most amazing of ways? Priceless.

    It looks perfect, dressy, and comfortable!

    Also pant hangs very nicely and look “nice” while being comfortable.

    I loved the fabric!

    Great article! You inspire me to get out of my drab “mommy clothes”. Who knew something so classic & simple could be so comfy yet still make you look like a million bucks!
