Today's debate: the cropped trouser vs. colorful denim. In an attempt to branch out from colored skinnies, I ordered these pink cropped trousers. I love the color and fit (I'm showing you my bum to prove it, j/k), but I was also feeling a Golden Girls vibe (like this Jessica Alba pin). I have never been a fan of dress pants though, so maybe I'm not the best judge. Cropped trousers are great for work, especially if your dress code doesn't allow jeans. But the jury is still out on wearing them casually. What do you think? Cropped trousers: office only, or a good replacement for skinny jeans?

ps. I also ordered these flared coral linen pants. My usual size is slightly small, and the length would only be good for flats. The hunt continues.

pps. Here's a similar outfit from last summer.
