Lee McQueen started his career on London’s Savile Row and now with longtime assistant and friend, Sarah Burton, at the creative helm of Alexander McQueen – the late designer’s eponymous label – the brand continues to shift boundaries with its impeccable tailoring. Bridging the gap between shorts and suiting, a pair of cropped trousers is a contemporary way to work a strict formal look. Zip-up these impeccable pieces with a pair of embroidered slippers or single-sole sandals; the calf-baring length is perfect for showing off toned limbs and your favourite shoes.
