Ankle skimmers?

Would you?

What do you wear them with?

Just bought a pair from gap - plain black. I'm thinking Audrey Hepburn (even though I am a size 14 red head)

Not sure you lot will let me wear them with my lovely new Clarks shoes though hmm

flat ballet pumps or something flat anyway

I wear them. Well actually they are cropped trousers from Zara but having short legs makes them ankle skimmers

Agree with MAS. They should be worn with ballet flats. If you have a well-turned ankle, go for red or another contrasting colour; otherwise stick with black.

Also, do not be tempted to team them with a black blazer. You will look like Michael Jackson.

And that is bad (sorry.....couldn't stop myself )
