Q: I love gaucho pants, I really do. But every time I try on a pair, they vary in lengths from just below the knee to just above the ankle. What is the correct way to wear these fabulous pants? I don’t want to embarrass myself!
A: Traditionally Gaucho pants should range between 21 inches to 24 inches in length. Seeing that you probably won’t be carrying a tape measure with you the next time your out shopping, follow this rule: Gaucho pants should fall approximately 3 to 4 thumb lengths from the middle of your knee. Any shorter, and the pants will look like skorts, skirt/short combo and any longer, you run the risk of the pants looking like high waters.
