I am not shopping much this season, and here are my first purchases. I am generally pretty happy about them, but please mention if you think something should go back. I am focusing mainly on tops, of three types: cropped&boxy, waist defining and 70s blouses.

Earlier today I got Gap Resolution straight jeans in pale wash that Angie raved about on the forum. These are to replace my pale COH skinnies that ripped fairly soon after I purchased them. I had them fixed, only to have them rip again. You can see the Gap jeans in all of these photos. The new tops are:
in #1- cropped boxy BR tee with lace sleeves
in #2- lilac boxy scuba H&M top
in #3- cropped patterned silk tee
in #4&# 5 - H&M asymmetric teal scuba peplum top with a flounce
I also got a skinny Loft belt in pale seafoam (#6) to wear over loose tops. The color matches my pale blue moto.

I have a couple questions though:
1. The jeans are cropped at the ankle, so do you prefer them trolled or unrolled?
2. For cropped boxy tops (1-3) worn with high waisted bottoms, do you prefer the belt loops empty, a skinny belt or a wider belt?
3. What kind of pant/jean shape does a waist defining top like the peplum (4,5) work best with? Skinny, straight, or something flared?
4. Same question for loose belted tops like in #6?

Thank you very much!
