Straight-leg was the category that gave our editors the most agita. "It's so hard to get right," said Elle."Because it can look so wrong!" Anne frowned. "People just shouldn't get straight-leg!"
They said this but then were forced to laugh at themselves when every single pair of straight-leg pants they Googled was sold out. "The people have spoken," Anne finally conceded. Pumps or flats work with straight-leg (they shuddered visibly when I brought up boots and sandals), and the pants themselves should be cropped (or cuffed) at the anklebone or above.
