In the summer I love casual summer cropped pants.  They can be the perfect alternative to shorts that can keep you cool without having to bare your legs.  Casual summer cropped pants can also be dressed up or down depending on what you style with them.

As the mercury continues to rise, I am giving you some outfit ideas using these casual summer cropped pants from Caslon that will work for your downtime.  Round out your wardrobe by also shopping for additional styles at the end of this post.

How to Wear Casual Summer Cropped Pants

Outfit #1

Casual summer outfits are typically very simple.  To add a bit of simple novelty, I added this red and white t-shirt from J. Crew with a small ruffle on the sleeves.  I finished the outfit with slip on wedges from Sole Society, a tan vegan tote from Urban Originals and drop earrings from Vince Camuto.

Outfit #2

Give me a tank top and a pair of casual summer cropped pants and I am set for a hot summer weekend.  I styled this look with my favorite tank from Nic + Zoe which is beefy enough to keep its shape and isn’t too sheer.  I finished the outfit with a pair of gold flat sandals from Sam Edelman, rose pink cross body bag and statement necklace from Stella & Dot.  Gold sandals are always my favorite for summer because they go with everything and add a simple pop to a casual look.

Outfit #3

Another thing I like to wear in the summer is printed tops.  Lucky Brand has always been my go to because I feel done without a lot of layers or accessorizing.  I styled this printed top from Boden with the pants and finished the outfit with comfortable block heel sandals from Vionic, burgundy bag from Sole Society and square wood earrings from Lele Sadoughi.

Outfit #4

If you prefer arm coverage, I styled this lightweight tunic from J. Crew to create this summer look.  I finished the outfit with tan flat slides from Treasure & Bond, olive tote from Madewell and chandelier earrings from Anna Beck.

Outfit #5

If a basic t-shirt feels too boring, you can try a style like this one from Banana Republic that acts like a tee but has a bit more interest.  I finished the outfit with a pair of wedge sandals in yellow from Bandolino, white cross body from Hobo and statement necklace from Chico’s.
