IMO, the reason we are not seeing wide leg crops much is that they are hard to style. I have recently lost a bit of weight, and if I hadn't I think I would be returning the two pair I bought. Both were later season sale purchases-one from Loft at the mall, and the other Nordies on line summer sale. Both fit very well, but no matter what I try to pair them with they add pounds to my look. I did manage to find a couple of tops in my wardrobe to wear them with for our hot fall weather. But also I have fund some ways to style the olive ones for perhaps all year round wear. Since they were sale items they were not a big investment. Later I will post some photos of them. For now I would like to see yours, and your thoughts on them. have to add though, mine have a very soft comfy feel.
