When you have celebrity "it" girls such as Beyoncé Knowles
(The Queen B) and rising superstar, Keri Hilson
, rocking a trend it is inevitable that it will become a favorite of fashionistas everywhere. Cropped shorts and pants are as chic as they are comfy.
What's so fun about this trend is that they can be born with versatility: Cropped pants look exceptional when donned with a loose fitting top such as a peasant blouse or jacket. Or,
if you want to accentuate the feminine curves, rock a pair with a form-fitted top with a nip at the waist. And don't forget to accessorize! Elongated necklaces and dramatic accessories will be sure to compliment and bring out the "funk" to this hip 70's trend.
While many of our fave celebrity darlings can afford to splurge on a pair of designer cropped pants, many of us cannot. Here are some, fabulous as ever, but at the fraction of the cost:
