Hemlines are getting higher this summer.
To crop or not to crop? It’s a valid question, and one you might be asking yourself frequently these days. Trousers, chinos, sweatpants and leggings are all receding. You’ll notice the trend taking over both your weekend and workwear wardrobe.

Whether you love the cropped look already or still need a little convincing, follow our guide on finding the right ankle-baring style for you…

TAPERED AT THE ANKLE



The tapered leg is perfect for formal occasions. It manages to look elegant and refined on almost anyone. Avoid wearing clunky shoes or boots and instead opt for a pointed shoe and kitten heel that adds length to the leg. For men, team with polished Derby shoes or brogues and wear them with low cut socks.

STRAIGHT DOWN THE LINE



Straight-leg trousers are always a safe bet because they look flattering on any body shape. Not only does a straight leg give the illusion of length but its versatile cut accompanies heels, flats and summer sandals nicely.

CROPPED OR CUFFED



Not ready to commit to the cropped look? Just roll them up for now.

SLEEK AND SLIM



A sleek pair of perfectly fitting trousers never fails to look stylish. We recommend a high waist for a leg-lengthening trick. Keep them fresh this season by investing in bold patterns and summery pastels.
