Aw Here it Goes: The Ankle Pants Trend

Looking through some of the 2013 Pre-Fall fashion show photos, it seems as though one of my favorite looks is going to be allover the town next year. Juicy Couture, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Rachel Comey have revealed that our beloved cigarette jeans are getting a tad shorter in 2013. The ankle pants trend is something you’ll see dating back to the 1950’s, along with coiffed curls, scarves, and cat-eye glasses–ah, those were the days.

No more ugly skinny jean scrunch on at the ankle, these playful pants are more flattering with the exposed ankle. Or if you’re shorter, perhaps this is the time to stock up on skinny jeans that won’t look like legwarmers. These pants range from just below the calf muscle to tight above the ankle bone, and let’s not forget to mention, they’re TIGHT.

With the right cut, these can help elongate your legs, giving you that sweet 60’s style we’ve been seeing so much of on the runways. Flats, pumps, or ankle boots will look great with these, depending on what look you’re going for. Some of the patterned cigarette pants look really chic, as long as you don’t do like grandma and get a matching jacket and headscarf, or maybe that’s your thing.
