Time to Turn it up!

Dare to bare with this ankle flashing trend

Menswear is all about details, classic silhouettes refashioned and reimagined with new fabrics or shapes. From dropped shoulders, frayed hems, cropped cuts or extremely skinny fits. That's the case here as what was omnipresent on the sidewalk wasn't a dramatic statement trend it was something smaller yet well defined. At this season’s London Collections Men’s a diverse range of dapper dudes rolled up the hem of their trousers to show off shoes, socks and ankles.

Rolling up the hem of the trouser instantly adds to an outfit, it's important to think about the fabric and the look you're aiming to achieve. The best effect is usually achieved on slimmer fits and less voluminous shapes. There’s multiple ways to adopt this trend from the smart to the casual or a mesh of the two with a relaxed formality. The trend can be played up or down and is also one that you can have fun with!

If you're thinking about the smart, then a slight roll usually works best worn with crisp, clean socks or by adding a dash of colour to the proceedings with plain primary hues. You can also bare flesh and go sockless, think a pair of tailored trousers turned up with a pair of loafers.

Raising the hem is an easy look to adopt and one you can do with a large majority of trousers. We have a wide selection of chinos, jeans, tailored trousers, socks and shoes in a multitude of styles that would easily for you to mix and match and adopt this look.
