Forget your uncle or neighbour who laughed at you for wearing ‘mutema’ pants what do they know about fashion?
Ankle-length pants are the hottest item trending right now. These slim-fit pants that are cropped just above the ankle. A well-fitting pair, whether high-waisted or low-cut is perfect for office, lazy weekends and even a night out. If they are in basic, neutral colours, even better. These you can wear everywhere.
They are also very easy to match. Whether you want them to go with a tee or vest, and sneakers, ankle-length pants are just the perfect wardrobe must-haves. Remember, they have to be tight because if not, you will look like a tabliq.
Now, if you wear a bowtie blouse or an office shirt with it, you are good to go for that important business meeting. You can then pull off the office shirt and match it with your sexy night-out shirt and still achieve maximum results.
These pants are also best worn with heels to show off good legs. Go with the same colour of shoes to create a long lean line if your pants are longer. But the shorter ankle length works with many shoe styles and colours.
Best of all, do tuck in if the shirt or top allows you to show off some hip. Otherwise, if you have chosen a peplum top, well and good work that style!
