    I’m actually quite fond of the cropped pants that widen at the ankle–with a cropped top or slim top, and a great shoe, they are very cute. I love this. And honestly, with my RA-riddled knees, they are a welcome fit for me. My knees hurt me constantly, and I don’t like to wear pants that are tight or constricting around my legs any longer. People tell me they like the wider pants when I wear them, and I think…if they only knew why I am wearing them.

    Sue Smith’s comment really hit home with me. My right knee is misshapen and about 1 inch larger than my left one because of 2 knee surgeries. The skinnies I used to wear, simply don’t fit or are much too constricting around my sensitive knees. I like the wide leg jeans and also have a great fitting pair of black wool cropped pants from Club Monaco that fit really well. Summer will be a lot easier for me than winter because all the wide pants I saw were cropped.

    A pleasant change from all the tight skinny pants out there! Do love the black tee & white jacket with the denim! Mary Albers PS Love the shoes, but alas, my poor feet can’t wear heels anymore!

    I liked what you mentioned about shoes—they can make or break an outfit. It can be a challenge if you have foot issues or can’t wear certain styles. Your sandals complete this look. I was glad you reminded women about hems the other day—the shorter the hem the lower the heel. I see these women wearing stilettos with short dresses and it gives them a sort of giraffe look or like they might fall forward face first. Proportion really matters!

    Such great points. I tried these jeans on and thought I looked ridiculous but the way you’re wearing them they look fabulous. Maybe I need to rethink them. Wearing trendy with classic items is a great idea.

    You are so right, those shoes just make this outfit work! I love it and I love your hair.

    Love the way you have mixed classics with a trend. I have some jeans similar to those but with the hem intact. Interesting comments regarding skinny pants…it really is nice to see a little different profile. Love the polish color! xoxo
