Right now is not the time to spend over $500 on a pair of high-waisted cropped pants. Lots of brands (from Madewell to Everlane) make excellent, much cheaper versions of this on-trend pant style, and wouldn’t you know it, Amazon’s house line Daily/Ritual makes a pair that look surprisingly nice — and are discounted in this lovely blush shade as part of a larger Amazon Fashion sale. The slacks in question have a bit of stretch to them, and would look great with some white sneakers or some flat sandals. (They also come in lots of other colors, which are not on sale, but still under 30 bucks.)
