    I try not to wear cropped pants with 3/4 length sleeves, because I feel like it looks like I fell asleep in normal fitting clothes, and woke up 25% larger.

    They’re cute. They just make everyone look shorter and wider. I am already as short and wide as they come, so I don’t care!

    Yes, the problem is that because they bisect your leg below the knee, the proportion they create is such that your legs look shorter and therefore you look wider.
    Having said all that–if you’re not particularly short or particularly wide, I don’t really think it’s such a big deal. In fact, I’m a fan myself because as a gal over 35 (heck, over 35), they’re a practical and less body-baring alternative to shorts in hot weather.
    And there are lots of variations on the cropped pant, from just above the ankle to a Bermuda short. Try several styles on and see what works for you.
