When sitting? When standing up? Should your pants eb different lengths if you decide to wear flat/heels?

I'm asking this question because I'm purging through my closet, and I'm about to throw out a lot of pants that I think are too short. When they were altered, they were cut to my bottom ankle, but I prefer the longer look just in case I want to wear heels with the pants. I think your pants should cover your shoe in the middle. Any input on this?

I like my pants long also. At the very least, they must hit about the point on the back of my shoes where the shoe part meets the heel- unless I'm wearing shorter pants on purpose, like capris.

This is exactly what I was talking about. Yeah I'm going to throw out some pants and hopefully my new ones won't run to small, or I'll ask her to let them out again. I'm thinking my pants aren't high quality and over time they shrink though :(

i like for them to have a break in them (top of foot), not a huge dent but a break which means they are long enough for heels too.

Just above the floor or they're too short!
With skinny jeans and heels though.... if they only slightly cover the top part of the shoe - that's my perfect length :)

I don't like long jeans. I have a few Bananna Republic jeans that drag the floor. The perfect length for me is a pair of jeans that looks nice with heels and does not drag the ground with flats. HTHs! I am loving skinny jeans, they seem to accomplish this the best.

The hell should be covered if wearing heels.
