“How can I rock the French style of wearing jeans, but without making me look short?” – Noha
Skinny jeans are a tried-and-true staple in every girl’s wardrobe, and while there are endless options out there, the search for the perfect pair isn’t always easy – especially if you’re on the petite side. If you find a pair you love that’s a tad too long, don’t fret – I love the look of rolled bottoms, and have also noticed a ton of my most-stylish friends altering their jeans the old-fashioned way by cutting the bottom hem themselves (one of my fave designers, Anine Bing, even sells her like this – just be sure they’re skinny, not flared). Once you find a pair that works for you, style them with classic, timeless layers like a chic sweater and shirt (collar popped!), and a navy blazer or leather jacket slung over your shoulders. For the day, brogue or loafers look lovely, but for evening, add a sexy, lengthening heel et voila – you’ve got that French je ne sais quoi!
