Roll up your Boyfriend Jeans!

The new trend hitting the High Street this week is rolled up denim. Think Boyfriend jeans and your favourite pair of heels…carrying your day look right into the the evening.

Celebs Katie Holmes and Rachel Bilson have really perfected this look, resulting in that effortlessly cool look we all love.

Rolled up jeans can be worn with flat pumps during the day like Katie does, but they are really made for showing off statement shoes. I love Katie's Gladiator heels paired up with boyfriend jeans. To complete this as an evening look, team up your jeans and statement shoes with a simple white vest, your sexiest black bra and favourite jewellery.
If you’re petite, heels are a must as rolled up jeans can shorten the appearance your legs. Gladiator heels are perfect for this look; we love these gorgeous Gladiator heels from Faith (£75)

When buying your pair of boyfriend jeans consider the length and width of the leg. Topshop have a great pair for just £40, these have a wider leg giving a more casual feel.

You can either roll them up, or just gather them up and pin them to match your own style.

If you are after a slightly smarter look then straight-legged jeans are the way forward. I’ve found another fab pair at Topshop (£35)

A good variety of Jeans are a staple in any wardrobe, these styles are also timeless, so it’s definitely worth investing in a good quality pair. For that there is only one place to go and that is Diesel.

These structured, tapered jeans would go perfectly with a killer pair of heels as well as your favourite pumps.

To add a bit of an 80’s feel to your look (which is becoming quite a rage at the moment) why not try a faded or ripped pair of jeans, we love these from Diesel at £120.

And remember if you have a restricted budget; just grab your boyfriends for the perfect
oversized look!

Try not to over-style this look, keep it simple, and remember to wear a fitted top to balance out your baggy bottoms. If you choose to wear them with pumps during the day - then a statement scarf or Chanel inspired jacket (check out Peacocks for their new autumn/winter collection, out September 1st!) are a must.

If you’re carrying this look into the evening then the bigger the heels the better!!
