The styling here is about the proportional balance of the outfit. The bomber is normal length, meaning relatively short, but the shirt is longer. And the pants are cropped. Notice how the shirt works with the bookending jacket and pants. It’s harmonious to alternate lengths like that. If everything were short and cropped, the pieces would be competing. It would be too much. And as a general guideline, you don’t want anything to hit halfway down your body. This look roughly sticks to the rule of thirds, which is pleasing to the eye.
