cropped trousers slouchy short pick.jpg
Slouchy, cropped trousers are this summer's big alternative to the short circle skirt and are a great way of looking dressed up without being too girly. I like the appropriately 'carrot leg' monikered trousers on the right, which will suit the long of limb. The pair in the middle make a great alternative to chinos but steer clear of pockets if you are pear-shaped.

They don't necessarily have to spell disaster for those with big hips though; go for fine, silky fabrics and a straight-ish cut (like the pair on the left) and make sure you try on as many pairs as possible. See after the jump for product details.
