So, last weekend I wore a pair of really long jeans, not because I kind of like the look, but mainly because I was too lazy to hem them and figured I could get away with wearing them at least once (and, besides, nothing else was clean).
Having now experimented with this style of pants, I have a few questions.
How do you gals wear pants this long without: a) tripping all over yourselves, and b) getting the bottom of them filthy with street gunk.
Often, when someone posts (or pins) this style, the commentary runs along the lines of how the model’s legs look ‘a mile long’. I disagree. I think pants that touch the ground make the model look as if she doesn’t possess feet and is trying to hide that sad fact; sort of like how I try to hide the ugly nummular eczema on my shins by wearing boots all the time. In both instances, we are fooling no one.
Alternatively, perhaps you are hiding Crocs under there.
I still sort of like this look, but I’ve come to the conclusion that y’all don’t really wear these out and about. I suspect that, as with many of your cute outfits (particularly ones with ridiculously strappy/skinny heels of the type designed by a sadistic foot fetishist), you put these long pants on, snap a few photos, and go change into a pair of pants with a proper hem. Come on, admit it…
