Now, I don’t want to brag or anything, but I was rocking ankle-cut denim long before it was cool. It might have been due to being a middle school girl going through a major growth spurt in the 2000s, but still. Despite being plenty of options for different lengths in 2019 (#blessed), streetwear is bringing back the exposed ankle by stealing the 7/8 leggings look. Take that, childhood bullies.
With the countdown to spring in full force, now’s the time to ditch your darks and try out the trendy light wash look that’s taking over the denim world. They don’t just pair perfectly with your wedges—that cut-off at the ankle also makes them a great option to wear with your favorite pair of sneakers, too. Plus, how can you say no to something that makes your current self super-confident and your younger, awkward self proud at the same time? Here are the best options to shop right now.
