High-water (or Michael Jackson) pants are a thing of he past. Fashion has turned those embarrassing high-length pants into a trend you would want to try. I remember cuffing my pants leg up while rocking a pair of high-top Converse when I was in Junior High because my mom couldn’t afford to buy us jeans when needed. Me being embarrassed by the comments from my peers, but oh how the fashion tables have turned. Main stream fashion has taken that mishap and turned it into this year’s must have.  Denim, silk, twill and a number of textures are being cut oh so beautifully into skinny ankle pants, fit to coordinate your everyday lifestyle. The trick in pulling off this look is to pay attention to the cut; stick with a slim cut that fits perfectly to the ankle. Anything shorter will steer you back to those embarrassing high school years. Take notes from our fabulous celebs:

Denim ankle pants can appear effortless if you keep the pant dark and slim, pair your jeans with a boyfriend blazer and a silk top like the model above. Cuffing your pants gives it a modern twist and don’t forget those nude pumps to elongate your legs:
