Time to Turn it up!

Dare to bare with this ankle-flashing trend.

Menswear is all about details and classic lines reimagined with new fabrics or shapes. From dropped shoulders to frayed hems, cropped cuts to extremely skinny fits. That's what's happening: what was everywhere out on the sidewalk wasn't a dramatic statement trend; it was something smaller, but well defined. At this season’s London Collections Men’s, a diverse group of dapper dudes rolled up the hem of their pants, to show off shoes, socks and ankles.

Rolling up your pants hem instantly adds to an outfit. It's important to think about the fabric and the look you're going for. The best effect usually comes with slimmer fits and less bulky shapes. With lots of ways to take on this trend, you can go dressy or casual, or a blend of the two, with a relaxed formality. The trend can be played up or down: have fun with it!

Aiming for dressy? A slight roll usually works best, worn with crisp, clean socks or by adding a dash of color with plain primary shades. You can also bare it! Go sockless: think a pair of tailored pants, turned up with a pair of loafers.

Raising the hem is an easy look to get and one you can do with most of your pants. We have a great choice of chinos, jeans, tailored pants, socks and shoes in a huge range of styles, making it easy for you to mix and match to get this look.
