Much of the world has lived in skinny jeans and tightly tapered trousers for the better part of a decade, but fashion is nothing if not cyclical. The flared and super-wide, JNCO Jean-esque cuts of the '90s have been slowly reentering the market for some time now, and Fall 2017 may be hitting us with the coolest options yet. Finding niche trends like these in extended sizes was once a near-impossible feat, comparable to slaying dragons or landing an invite to the Met Gala. Lucky for us, these 37 plus size wide legged, cropped pants prove that things are evolving for the better.
Dressing in between seasons can often seem complicated at best and garbage-fire-emoting at worst. Cropped and wide-leg pants are just about perfect for the summer to fall transition, though. Their length offers more coverage (and subsequently more warmth) than a summery skirt might, but the flared hems will allow that sweet autumnal breeze to hit your knees when the days are on the warmer side.
Whether your sartorial tendencies err on the side of vintage-inspired, minimalism-heavy, or boss babe-like, there's undoubtedly a cropped and flared trouser out there to fit your every chic and nuanced need. With some clever layering, you may even be able to rock some of these come the A/W transition, too.
