Cream of the Cropped

With so many flattering new styles, it's easy to think beyond capris. Here are my favorites, along with the right shoes for each.

The Culotte
Balance the voluminous style with substantial shoes, like stacked-heel sandals.

Jeans, Wilfred Free for Aritzia, $110;
Shoes, Michael Michael Kors, $165; 866-709-KORS.

The Skinny Ankle
Make your legs look even longer by pairing formfitting jeans with pointy-toe heels.

Jeans, Lucky Brand, $139;
Shoes, Manolo Blahnik, $595;

The Cropped Bootcut
Play up the cool-nerd effect by coupling high-water jeans with stylish oxfords.
