5 Best Cropped Trousers, by Body Type, for Fall 2010

cropped trousersCropped trousers have been a versatile hit all summer long, but they'll also serve you right into fall. Pair them with a shimmery top, heels, and a clutch, and you can also create a lovely evening look in the winter.

Personally, I love these trousers because they allow you to show off your favorite shoes whether they're flats, booties, or heels.
