trend: fall 07: the cropped pant

For the upcoming fall and winter, warmth may not be an option for today's man. Designers from the ever elegant Stefano Pilato for Yves Saint Laurent to the downtown favorite Hedi Slimane for Dior Homme, have been embracing a new, fresh concept for the traditional men's pant. They showed a vast selection of cropped pants, which was usually worn with a longer, but slightly leaner top. The main trick to this trend is the sock issue, which can be rather challenging for one who is not color savvy. However, as these designers showed, best option is to go sock less or if you truly want to be original pick a bold, contrasting color that pops, as shown by Alexander McQueen.

Good point about socks. I'm a girl but I always wonder, if you wear white trousers with black shoes (that's allowed right?) then what colour should the socks be - black or white? Pink?
