    In the dark, dark days known as middle school, we wouldn't be caught dead in cropped pants. Back then, an ankle-grazing hem meant one thing: that you were an Urkel-resembling nerd who was expecting a flood at any moment. But, something amazing happened in the last few years — suddenly, the high-water has become chic.

    From Alexa-alikes rocking mod-ish cropped trousers to Sartorialist-worthy women in French-rolled jeans, showing some ankle feels a bit tomboy and a bit gamine in all the right ways. Oh, and you know how you're so model tall that all your pants are just a tad too short? No? Well, to be honest, we don't know the feeling, either. But, an ankle-grazing hem is the fastest way to make you feel five-foot-10.

    Keep reading to see how eight super-stylish women rock the crop. And, if you're inspired to try the look, just click each slide for our short-sheared shopping picks.
