Help I can't decide!
I have one pair which sit just above my ankle bone and look good with sandles, ankle boots, flats, etc., however they look a bit short (to me) at home with slippers!
So I ordered a new pair which are slightly longer, they look nice but they are wrinkling around the bottom of my ankle, should I go for a Shorter
Pair, these jeans come in different lengths. I'm in my 50's if that's relevant!

I wear my skinny jeans rolled up to just above ankle with flats or rolled down with boots that are long or above ankle. I think they look odd on me full length with flatscreen with ankle boots.
I’m very late 40s.

Flat shoes - look bad with a flatscreen tv too hahaha

I think I agree!
I think that being taller (5'8"), when I was young it was such a pain getting jeans long enough it seems odd having them at that height.

I'm in my 50s and petite (5'3). If you are short I think they look better if not wrinkled at the bottom, the just look like you bought them too long. You can get away with the gathered at the ankle look if you are taller IMO.

Thank you all for your input, I've ordered the shorter length.

I always roll mine up twice with flats to show my ankle.

I also do the same if wearing ankle boots, because if the jeans are not completely tight to your ankle then they look weird tucked in. Over-the-boot causes an odd look as well.

So personally I would go shorter, or long enough to roll to that shorter length. Hope this helps!
