Do you remember the days when you wore your pants pegged and rolled up, back in the mid-eighties? Well, like acid washed jeans, a style similar to the pegged leg look of the 80’s seems to be making a resurgence.
Now, while I usually am chastising us “older folk” from trying to keep up with our younger sisters’ trends—I say this is one trend you can carry off, if you know how to do it.
One good example, is this picture I saw in the May issue of More magazine. Forty year old, actress Jill Hennessy, is pictured in a pair of Calvin Klein frayed jeans, with a skinny roll and a wicked pair of studded Manolo Blahnik, T-strap stilletos.
If you are attracted to this look, I recommend pairing your jeans with a “tough” looking sandal.
The jeans in this example are shown dressed up with ultra modern and sexy heels, a structured jacket along with a bead and crystal necklace.
If you want to dress it down slightly, pair the jeans with a pair of gladiator sandals, t-shirt and scarf.
