What Fashion Girls Wear Instead of Skinny Jeans and Ankle Boots

We're not going to lie to you: The whole tucking trousers into boots thing is laden with off-beat fashion references you may not be keen on. Swashbuckling pirates do it. Puss in Boots would be nothing without it. There's plenty of said layering at any given Panto come Christmastime. But there are also some fantastic fashion moments that will counteract any naysaying out in the wider world.

Think of all the times Kate Moss has looked so rock 'n' roll over the years wearing knee-high boots pulled over ultra-skinny jeans, or the fact that right now there's a stylist that everyone's dying to work worth (that's Ursina Gysi), and she barely steps out into the public domain without wearing her pants like this. One of our favourite bloggers, Evangelie of Style Heroine, has been wearing her '80s-style formula below on repeat for some time now.
