With all the talk of cropping, I got brave and went after a couple of pair of 'redundant' skinnies that were in need of a little something. One (not pictured) is a medium blue denim with even lighter floral pattern that I cut and am fraying (boy does that ever take me back to my childhood!). Will style and show soon. The other pair is a dark ink, almost black pair of Joes that I cut for my high shaft moto booties. I loved the free and breezy feel of them AND the lack of bunching and fuss of the original length, that I wore them to work on Friday. Styled here with a navy high/low hem wool sweater, navy blazer and my/our trusty green NAS long jacket. I also tried on a new Rack cashmere sweater that arrived, which has a cool scarf hem and boxy shape. Anyway, hoping to get feedback on the length. I don't plan on hemming, as I'm liking the vibe of the rough edge. I will say that it's tricky figuring out how much to cut, as skinnies move around alot during the day and consequently the sliver of skin can go from non-existant to 2 inches, depending. Have any of you tried cutting your skinnies?
