The Right to Bare Ankles


If you've been following my blog closely, you may have noticed that I almost always wear my pants cropped or cuffed (weather permitting, which is 95% of the time in LA. The other five percent of the time, I may kinda sorta find myself awkwardly rolling them back down as dusk falls). I tend to feel like long hems look a bit sloppy; that a peek of ankle is more polished and chic and lends the impression that your pants fit better than they actually do.

Recently while browsing H&M.com (I find myself ordering from there a lot more lately since they allow in-store returns now), I was drawn to this pair because of it's less-tapered hem. They're almost like a wannabe kick-flare without quite committing to an actual flare (still on the fence about that trend by the way). They remind me a lot of "floods" from the 1990s actually. Do you remember those? They were popular right after "pedal-pushers." Though it's kind of funny because I remember that growing up, if you wore "highwater" pants, you were teased and called a nerd. But, everything uncool eventually becomes cool, right?

  5. The trousers look awesome on you! I agree with longer hems looking sloppy since I always have to roll mine up anyway (short people problems).
    The photo location is gorgeous too.
