How To Wear Cropped Trousers Like Gwen Stefani

Gwen Stefani – the new face of L’Oreal – is known for taking risks with fashion but she pulls off the cropped trousers look perfectly.

Crops are perfect for summer as they’re lightweight and comfortable but offer more protection than shorts. Great if you’re out and about all day and don’t know what the weather will be doing as they look fine with a jumper, unlike shorts.

And it does look like LA based Gwen is feeling the chill of the British weather after spending Easter in the States with her American relatives.

Walking quckly through London’s Primrose Hill area with her husband Gavin Rossdale, it looks like Gwen’s on a mission to get somewhere quickly to warm up.

Very can reveal there are a few reasons for the Stefani-Rossdale’s visit to the UK. Firstly, they’re visiting Gavin’s UK based relatives, so five year old Kingston and two year old Zuma can meet their extended family.

And secondly Gwen’s wanting to raise her profile in the UK again as her band No Doubt are reforming for a tour.

After appearing on the front cover of Elle UK in the magazine’s April issue she said her own music has been influenced by the big 80s scene in Britan, confessing: “Madness, The Specials, UB40, Depeche Mode, The Cure and all of that 1980s music – that’s the music I worship.”

And you can get the chance to see all that in person with tour dates set to start in late Autumn this year.

In the meantime, we can take a leaf from her fashion by choosing some cropped trousers from Very. The South crop combat trousers are a good start – loose and comfortable but also chic

Or the Savoir cropped pants can be rolled up or down so you can decide how much leg to show off

The Love Label cropped cuff pants come in black or khaki with a cool drawstring waist. Green’s a risky choice but these would look gorgeous with a plain black or white top.

Gwen wears hers with a black and white jumper and if you fancy following the stripes look check out the G-star raw stripe cardigan

If you want to follow in Gwen’s fashionable footsteps then you can also find some Carvela American leather wedge shoe boots, which look very similar to what the singer was wearing

Wear them with some Intimates essentials pack of three lurex glitter socks to really get Gwen’s style

And every woman needs a large bag like the Mischa Barton tote bag– perfect if you’re out and about for the day

It won’t be long before Gwen’s back in the UK to tour…and showing off more amazing outfits. Can’t wait!
