Reader eword10 asked me: I would love to hear your solution on the problem another commenter mentioned: the long pants for heels and then pant legs dragging on the ground when you switch to flats. That is my problem. ALL. THE. TIME.
Now unfortunately I don’t have any great solutions!
Firstly, I’d advise you have jeans and pants that are hemmed for heels, and jeans and pants that are hemmed for flats so that if you want to wear heels you have the correct trouser length for them, or if you feel like flats you have trousers that won’t drag on the ground.
But what is the solution when say you want to slip on a pair of flats to duck out and go for a walk at lunchtime, or when commuting to and from work, but you wear the pants with heels the rest of the time?
Ok, my thoughts are:
Jeans you can usually cuff them up or under fairly easily and because of the stiffness of the fabric they’ll stay that way.
Double sided tape (toupe tape or even the regular stationery variety) to stick up the hem to a shorter length. Ok for a once of but not a great every day solution.
Safety pins on the hems on the outer and inner seams – again not a great solution, and it will droop front and back.
Velcro dots on the inside of the hem, so that you can turn under the hem and stick it up.
I’ve not come up with any great solutions – does anyone out there know of an effective way of shorteneing pants so they don’t drag, but you can still lengthen them so that you can wear with heels? I’d love to hear your solutions!
