Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly took fashion by storm in the 1960s. This spring we can all honor the fashion icons with a new twist on one of the many trends they helped make famous: the cropped pant!

J Brand has released its spring 2012 line of cropped jeans. In line with trends this season, there are a plethora of colors and styles to choose from.

For all you classic and sleek women, opt for their Mid-Rise Capri in white or khaki. These pants can easily translate from country club when paired with a button up or polo shirt, flats and pearls to dinner with the girls when paired with a flowly, floral blouse or lace tunic and flirty wedges.

To bring an edge to this timeless style, you can pair J Brand’s daring Ginger Pant embellished with zippers in the Vintage Armadillo or sultry black. Dress up the look with a pair of platform pumps, a statement necklace, and a sexy silk top.

Get noticed in their Patterned Mid-Rise Capri line. Patterns include an audacious grey floral called Heaven, a Japanese inspired print called Empress, and a sweeter, black and white version of Heaven called Sugar Cane. Any of these printed capris can be taken easily from day to night with a change of shoes. Pair with a bright colored espadrille (a bold red would add a punch to this monochromatic look) for a daytime picnic or pair with metallic platforms for a sultry night out on the town!
