I NSPIRED BY Tending crops
It's time to get high-with hemlines, that is. You have the right to bare ankles in an array of smartly clipped trousers that pair well with socks and sandals (yes, it’s a good look) or chic flats. New York label Monse styled satin pumps with equally high-shine cuffed culottes – a daring way to approach evening dressing. For more casual outings, T by Alexander Wang offers simple striped pants done in a textured burlap, and Judith & Charles’s trim trousers will quickly become a new wardrobe staple, and when paired with a blazer, they’re also office ready. Topshop’s vibrant pants have a relaxed, retro fit and Mochi’s adorable wide-leg wool culottes are adorned with orange tassels. Very short and sweet.
