Cropped pants with boots are not okay. What the hell is going on this season? I’ve been seeing this horrible combination all over town. Just because your tall boots happen to end right where your summer capris begin does NOT mean you should wear them together.
If you feel compelled to pair the two together, ask yourself two things:
1) Are times so tough that you can’t afford winter pants?
2) Do you like these Capri pants so much that you want to wear them all year?
If the answer to both of these questions is a resounding “yes” then, okay, wear them if you must. Otherwise, stop it. Now.
Recently Real Simple magazine identified something similar in their “Wardrobe Blunders” column:
Problem: Cropped Pants with Boots
Solution: Taller Boots
No! Taller boots are not the solution. Longer pants are the solution. The only advice you should be taking from Real Simple is how to organize your junk drawer.
