The Elastic Ankle

Tuesday 28th Oct 2014

“Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants” Karl Lagerfeld.

You may already be familiar with this popular quote, but I really feel Karl is selling this much loved staple short – elasticated ankles have come a long way in recent years.

Due to the rise of that wonderful genre: ‘Sports Luxe’, all-things-athletic have been embraced for the everyday (and night). It’s not uncommon to now see this comfy classic teamed with everything from high heels to strappy sandals.

The trick is finding the right (flatteringly slim-cut) pair. Case in point: these particularly fetching ones spotted at the recent Chloe Spring’15 runway collection.
