So I recently purchased some red ankle jeans. I was mostly excited because they’re red. Oh, so colourful, so perfect for fall. Little did I know, ankle jeans are a new style, actually they’ve been around for a while. Took off in spring, from what I know. But that just goes to show how on top of things I am.
Anyways, ankle jeans are like skinny jeans, but categorized by their short inseam. Which, if you have been following fashion rules for all your life, you know is a BIG FAUX PAS. Always find clothes that fit, pants shouldn’t show your socks when you sit, and so on.
Not the case with these; now I don’t mind a shorter inseam once in a while, and on my legs that’s 31” at the most. At least I’m learning this now, right? Well the pants I ordered are 29 inches long. I didn’t seem to think 2 inches would make a lot of difference when I found them. I mean, I could have chose the 28” inseam, right?
But they finally arrive and I try them on; I feel a bit too tall, and not in a good way. I’m only 5’8”, and for women, they are categorized tall after 5’7”. So I’m not a total freak, just on the borders of it. Maybe kind of falling off the edge of it. Okay yes I’m a freak and I go to lengths to stay that way.
Here are some self shots; I tried to pull off the trend with the ankle boots and wearing a black/white top. I think it worked a little, but I’m still not fond of how short me pants be.
I apologize for the lighting and not using flash. So what do you guys think? Should people be able to see your ankles if you’re wearing pants? I want to know other peoples opinion on this trend, or just coloured jeans in general. Here are some of my favourite colour jeans I own:
