While shorts may be the unofficial bottoms of summer, the reality is they don't work for all aspects of your busy, active life. That's where wide-leg cropped pants come in—they're versatile, flattering, and come in tons of fabric variations like denim, khaki, and silk. We especially love the styles with a high-rise waistline and truly believe every body can rock those, no matter the size or shape. To ease into this new silhouette, try a pair for work with a white button-down shirt and heels, or for a playdate with a fitted tee and slip-on sneaks. If you're still a skeptic, check out the 5 we've rounded up here and get ready to be convinced.
