Spring is here and you know what that means: It's officially time to ditch your socks. Flashing a bit of ankle is a chic (and unexpectedly sexy) way to show some skin, and all it takes to pull it off is a cropped pant paired with the right shoe. (Pro tip: Hem your bottoms where your leg starts to widen for a super-flattering look.)

See below for our favorite combos to wear right now, and all the way through summer.

Culottes + Chunky Heels

Wide-legs are once again big news for spring—pair with chunky heels to temper the volume.

Trousers + Sneakers

Call this the new word in commuter chic (and for a lucky few of us, a laid-back office uniform). The trousers should be straight and narrow all the way down to the ankle to give the look an easy, sporty feel.

Kick Flare Pants + Slides

For a modern spin on '70s cool, go for a slightly flared pant—denim is the most wearable—and a flat slip-on. The effect is super fashionable without trying too hard.

Tapered Pants + Loafers

Classic loafers were made for the "no socks" look. Go super minimal and a little bit '90s by pairing them with a tapered pant that sits high on the waist. Finish with a basic white T-shirt and you're out the door.
