A Cut Above

Men's footwear has long since taking off from basics to extravagance - think of our sneaker-obsessed culture. Perhaps in response to the proliferation and appreciation of men's footwear, the trend of ankle cropped pants and rolled hems have emerged. Cut from just below the knee to a sliver of skin along the ankle only, there's an effortless formality to this hit trend. 

How To:

To maintain subtlety, look to chinos cropped an inch above the ankle, or crisply roll up a pair of straight fit jeans. This ankle bearing trend seems to have been ushered in with the huge return of the boat shoe. When paired together, the boat shoe lends sophistication to balance the otherwise casual look for a put together yet effortless vibe.
