Gone are the days of the tight capris that you wore in the late ’90s, but cropped pants are coming back with fervor—in every way, shape, and form.

Case in point, Jen and Brenna’s take on the holiday party pants!

But even though the temps are dropping as we brace for winter, you can still bare some ankle (but maybe with some cute socks until spring hits and it’s also the perfect platform to show off your cute ankle boots!).

Jil Sander kept it classic with a slimmer silhouette, grazing just above the ankle. Add some chunky oxford heels and you’re good to go!

Proenza modernized the shape with a widened leg. Take a cue from the design duo and update your fall wardrobe with a go-to crop in suede or wool.

Alexander Wang’s hemline rose so close to the knee that you could even call it a long pair of shorts. These pants are the perfect length to wear with everything from a crazy heel to a pair of sneakers.

Show off more leg with shorter pants and, better yet, show off some amazing shoes! Click here for our favorites to tailor this spring trend to the fall weather.
