Rolled Up Jeans...Perhaps.

I haven't been too excited about this little rolled up baggy jean trend that celebs like Katie Holmes have been sporting lately, until I saw this image on The Sartorialist. Normally, I think the look is unflattering, but this lady managed to make it look adorable. Looks like the trick to pulling this look off is using jeans that fit close to the body, not too baggy, not too fitted, and they need to stop at that perfect spot just above the ankle making them perfect for showing off those adorable spring heels.
Okay...I'll try it.

Wow. I am wearing a VERY similar outfit today!! Minus the bag unfortunatly...

Anyway, I love the rolled up jeans trend but I think the key is not to go too baggy, then it just looks sloppy. Sometimes I think Kate's look a bit too frumpy!

Not a fan of Katie's look... way to bag. However, the picture posted I love! I roll up my jeans sometimes when I'm wearing flats, and I like it. Who would have thought I was ahead of the trend! LOL And I too love those shoes. =)

I'll agree with you on this point: to me, the rolled up jeans we've been seeing as a trend have looked very sloppy. Not something I'd want to inspire others to wear-but maybe that's just me.

I just love how this young woman made it look modern and classy. Kudos to her for figuring it out!

Thanks for sharing a lovely inspirational outfit. Sassy and sweet all rolled up into one.
