The Essential Wardrobe: Ankle-Skimming Pants
This season designers are favouring a flash of ankle, with current collections giving trousers the chop. Whether you opt for print, patterned, bright or black, the cardinal rule is clear: pick a pair with an ankle-biting cut. Cool-girl favourites, Rag & Bone, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Vince and J Brand are all going for the higher hem, while e-tailer ASOS offers plenty of cheap and cheerful options that will keep your credit card in the black. Tailored, slim-fit silhouettes will deliver a perma-polished finished, while cropped denim and slouchy, track-pant styles feel a little more laid-back. Spin the colour-wheel to find your shade — this look works in almost any print or colour — and if in doubt, grab one of each, because this trend is sticking around for a couple of seasons.
