I love, love, love loooove these pants! These crop pants have the BEST fit of any that I've seen. Granted they are by designer Alexander Mcqueen and $420.00, but still... It's fun to imagine myself wearing them. They're so versatile when worn correctly, you could wear them for any occasion. Slouch pants are somewhat of a tricky purchase because they tend to not fit as well the cheaper you go. That doesn't mean you can't find a cute but still affordable pair, it just requires a lot of research. So I thought I'd help you out a little and post some of my picks for affordable options.

Here's an example of how you can wear a pair of ankle socks under some platforms. They also look great under mid-calf boots. Notice how they've made sure to keep the look wintery by adding a trench coat. It's important to make sure you're warm enough and that you're look doesn't say "summer." I personally don't think I'd choose to wear a pair of shorts during the winter unless I was wearing a pair of boots. It gets too cold here for that to be appropriate.
I love this look with the over the knee socks under a pair of boots. It covers up some of that bare leg so it makes wearing a pair of shorts a little more suitable for winter. It mirrors the look of over the knee boots, but instead of having to splurge on a pair you can wear a pair of boots you already have! It's a better option for those of us who have limited income to spend on trendy clothing.
As far as tights go this season, you can always go with the traditional grey and black. If you want to spice it up a bit, you can always try wearing a pair of patterned or white tights.

Now, if you want to be really, really trendy... you can opt for wearing a combination of both or matching a pair of tights with some leg warmers. Wearing a pair of tights with ankle socks on top is a great look when worn with a pair of great pumps. Chanel shows us how to wear a pair of legwarmers on top of types and it looks amazing. This is such an 80s throwback, I love it!

So there you have it. You'll have TONS of options this winter so just take your pick! I think everything this Winter is awesome and I can't wait to start filling up my wardrobe :).

Trussardi 2010 RTW show
Military style caps have been around for quite a while and after checking out the runway shows for fall 2010, they aren't going anywhere any time soon. They're a classic and my personal favorite. You really can't go wrong with a military cap and they're flattering on everyone. Seriously. Round brim hats are also gaining popularity this season. Celebs like Drew Barrymore have been seen sporting similar caps to the one on the right. I believe that the cap above is a form of a fedora, but I'm not entirely sure, so don't quote me on that one. Either way, you can't go wrong with round brim this season.
J Crew/Fall 2010 RTW show
J Crew was another designer who took full advantage of head accessories during their fall fashion show. On the left, they've used a chunky knit headband, which isn't an entirely new style but it recently started gaining more momentum. Another similar style to the chunky headband is the slouchy knit cap on the right, which has been hugely popular among celebrities like Jennifer Aniston.

Lastly, we have some tried and true staples in the fashion world. The beret (on left) and the slouch beanie (on right). DKNY and Twelve8Twelve both make extremely wearable lines and that is shown here in their accessory choices. Neither of these hats are going to be extreme fashion statements, but they are great nonetheless and really help to polish your look off.
