The New Trend In Jeans

12 Oct

During the recent Fashion month in New York, London, Milan and Paris, the trend that stood out to me the most when I was checking out what the show goers were wearing, was cut off at the ankle jeans.

That’s right.  You just take to your jeans with your scissors and leave the hem raw.

The idea is to expose the ankle and showcase the shoe.

Of course like all trends it’s not for everyone.   Some would see this look as being too messy, bohemian and perhaps even too young, but as you can see below mature women (eg. 48 year old Emmanuelle Alt) are also doing it.

Like everything you wear, it’s all about how you wear it.

What I like about this trend, is that I can breathe life into something old in my wardrobe and feel like I have something new, without spending any money.  I reinvented a pair of old straight leg Levis that I’d stopped wearing.

So that you don’t look like you’ve been out working on the farm, the key is to dress the jeans up.  An interesting shoe, (given they’ll be receiving a lot of attention) a nice blouse, a beautiful bag and/or a great jacket.  An old pilled fleece vest and a scruffy pair of sneakers is not the look we’re wanting to achieve.  (Unless of course you are working on your farm 🙂 )

*Notice how none of the jeans are very skinny through the ankle.  The look is being achieved with straight, boyfriend or slim flared jeans.  It might be something you could do with your old daggy boot cut’s.

Whatever you do, do not cut your jeans off so that they become 3/4 length. The hem should just sit about the ankle bone.
