Olivia Wilde Wore the Best Flats Trend to Pair With Cropped Trousers

Olivia Wilde's casual style is often very casual—as in she wears leggings a lot. (It's worth noting that the paparazzi clearly camp out at her gym on a regular basis.) But while out with friends a few days ago in L.A., Wilde traded leggings for a pair of cropped trousers, which she paired with an oversize striped button-down shirt and a crossbody Saint Laurent bag. But of course, I'm here to talk about her shoes.

If you're looking for a way to make cropped trousers or jeans look fresh, look no further. The flats trend Wilde wore is a great success with cropped trousers. That trend is chunky loafers, the shoe style that celebrities can't get enough of (Hailey Bieber and Katie Holmes among them) and has become a staple in most fashion people's closets.

While loafers of all types are cool right now, it's chunky styles that undoubtedly give the most trend-forward edge to an outfit, cropped-pant outfits included. Scroll to shop the current pairs that I think are the chicest in case Wilde has unknowingly influenced you.
