We solve the pants/shoe conundrum
Flared legs, cropped skinnies, slouchy pegs — anything goes when it comes to trousers right now. But the trend comes with its fair share of shoe problems. We solve them
Acne skinny leather trousers, $1,250, www.acnestudios.com
A classic bootie
Whistles suede ankle boot, $238, www.whistles.co.uk
*Styling tip: If the ankle boots are too tall, your legs will look like stubs. You want to show a sliver of sock or skin above the boot.
Tailored wide legs
Stella McCartney wide leg trouser, $595, www.netaporter.com
A graphic flat
J.Crew printed loafer, $168, www.jcrew.com
*Styling tip: Loafers, yes. Ballet slippers, no. Why? Because this isn’t 2004.
Topshop cigarette trousers, $76, www.topshop.com
An ankle strap heel
Steven Triummp Ankle Strap, $169, www.shopbop.com
Styling tip: Pay attention to length. Ankle straps work best when the trouser hits just above the ankle.
