Top of the Crops

Cropped trousers are a bit of a fashion perennial, so you can wheel them out year on year and still be in style. It’s more than likely that you already have a pair or two in your wardrobe, but if you’re looking to add to your collection, you would do well to throw a patterned pair into your shopping bag. I love a patterned crop, they’re so easy to wear. Because they’re bright and attention-grabbing, you don’t really have to think too much about the rest of your outfit – just throw on a t-shirt, plain shirt or simple sweater and go. Alternatively, roll up the ankle on your favourite pair of jeans, add a heel and a jacket and you have an instant laid-back luxe party look. Finally, if you’re wanting to be on trend, you could go for volume  – the idea may be daunting, but if you end up looking as fabulous as Giovanna Battaglia (below), what’s not to love?
