Shopping List: The Fall 2015 Cropped Pant

Indulge me for a moment, will you?

I'm currently having a love affair with a pair of pants. A knock down, drag out, downright obsession with a particular style of cropped pants that's everywhere right now. We'll call it the Fall 2015 Cropped Pant.

This is the kind of obsession I now encounter from time to time, and it began once I started practicing the method of shopping slow. I embraced a smaller closet, avoided fast fashion and quick, cheap, impulse fashion purchases, and now – now – have entered into a world of analyzing almost every single purchase I make. (Can any other small closet converts relate?)

This cropped pant is my current obsession. I love how ugly they are in the best way possible, and how perfect they'll be for transitional weather. Wear with a t-shirt and straw hat now, then a crewneck sweater and motorcycle boots later. It's sheer perfection, I tell you.

For your viewing pleasure, and for the sake of indulging my obsession just a little bit more, I've put together a list of 16 of the best, ugliest, and most perfect cropped pants around. Gals, meet the Fall 2015 Cropped Pant: 


Dolores Haze Fall 2015

The Dolores Haze Fall 2015 lookbook was just released and, naturally, I love it.

The collection exudes vintage collegiate style, which means I can fulfill my dreams of becoming Ali MacGraw circa 1970, with a little help from the mini skirts, button downs, sweaters, and capelets.

All very Ivy League, all very youthful, all very dreamy. After all, the namesake of Dolores Haze, which is designed by my good friend Sam Giordano, is Lolita's real name in, well, Lolita.

Think innocence, and a few other things.

Here's a quick look at the collection via the lookbook's accompanying polaroid journal, made by Sam herself:
