In an effort to ease up on spending, I took in a few items to be altered in hopes of creating some new looks on the cheap. After salivating over the colorful spring 2012 ACNE cropped pants shown above, I threw in my wide legged trousers and jeans to also get the chop. Happy to say I now have two "new" pairs of pants that are far more flattering then before. Showing some ankle helps when you're only 5'4. If you're looking for an inexpensive way to freshen up the wardrobe for summer, I definitely recommend giving your wide legs the scissor treatment.
