This fall, I won't be parting with my favorite silhouette of summer: the cropped culotte. Just as easily as culottes kept me cool while traipsing around the sizzling city streets, the just-in styles will keep me snug as the chiller months take over. The key is to look for longer hemlines and insulating fabrics, while accessorizing with ankle socks or boots. From wallet-friendly winter white to true-blue denim, here are 5 styles waiting ever-so-patiently in my virtual shopping carts.
