Buying Pants: What You Need to Know
- If you want sleek, Audrey Hepburn cigarette pants, this narrow style should graze the ankles, says Berlin, who points to Theory’s sophisticated crops as the proper length.
- Going shorter? “Try styles that hit at the narrowest zone between calf and ankle, where the shin starts to indent,” says Monahan.

- As for wide-leg crops, says London, “they have their place in the world, but it’s on a beach or in a country house.”
