How to Wear Jeans According to This 66-Year-Old Former Vogue Editor

If you love fashion and in particular French fashion, then you'll know who Carine Roitfeld is. Esteemed editor of Vogue Paris for a decade, she then went on to found CR her eponymous fashion magazine, and continues to be held up as a bastion of classic Parisian styling. She is often photographed during fashion weeks wearing her signature form-fitting outfits—usually a pencil skirt with a matching jacket or in a chic tux with a hint of a lacy camisole underneath. Jeans, if we're being honest, haven't been a regular feature of her wardrobe repertoire. But this week, the 66-year-old editrix surprised us all by getting on a pair of straight-leg blue jeans, and even she knew it would come as a surprise to some, stating on her Instagram post revealing said denim: "I also do jeans now".

Who Can Think About Low-Rise Jeans When We Have Vanessa Hudgens's Jaw-Dropping Hip Cutouts?

The return of low-rise pants from the early 2000s has everyone in a frenzy, but Vanessa Hudgens just upped the ante at Pharrell Williams's hotel opening in Miami. Her take on the trend? Cult Gaia's Genevieve gown from the brand's fall 2021 collection - the slightly fancier follow-up to its popular knit Serita dress, which made the rounds on celebs like Romee Strijd and Hailey Bieber last summer. This look came with a fitted turtleneck bodice and far less fabric from there, complete with low-slung hip cutouts that revealed Hudgens's bikini-bottom tan lines. Two golden metallic ropes knotted the dress at the center and wrapped around to the back - pretty luxe, right? It will retail for $628 at the time of Cult Gaia's fw21 drop. Hudgens proved she's no stranger to body chains and packed ...

5 Shoes You Should Own If You Live in Mom Jeans

When it comes to jeans, some cuts instantly come to mind. Skinnies are one such style (even if they aren’t as prevalent right now as they once were). Boot-cut, flared, and boyfriend are also up there as some of the most iconic jeans silhouettes. However, we consider another jeans style to be a classic, and that’s mom jeans. Paying homage to the ’80s, mom jeans are typically high-waisted with a looser fit around the thighs and a leg that tapers toward the ankle. They’re the sort of thing your mum would have worn with a tucked-in blouse, a black leather Western belt, white socks and loafers.Nowadays, you’re far more likely to see celebrities like Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner stepping out in mom jeans paired with a long coat, plain white vest, and strappy sandals. The attraction? Their...

Which Shoe Styles Work With Flared Jeans? These 4 Always Look Good

It's been a while since we thought about it.You can never get too much of a good thing, and right now, our thing is denim. After being somewhat cast aside for the first time in recent history thanks to the stretchy waistbands and comfy loungewear of the pandemic, jeans are back on the radar. Searches for jeans and denim trends have been on the up since the beginning of the year, new looks (such as patchwork or criss-cross waistbands) have been well received by shoppers, and the more we look at our friends IRL and online the more we notice denim-centric outfits coming back to the fore.  In the past few weeks alone, the Who What Wear UK team has reported on the surprising rise of printed jeans, pinpointed 12 perfect spring outfits that all revolve around your favourite blues, decoded the ...

Sophie Turner Also Dislikes All This Business About Low-Rise Jeans Coming Back

Sophie Turner has a lot of strong feelings about denim. In a recent interview with Vogue about her latest Louis Vuitton campaign, the actress shared her thoughts on baggy jeans (she's a fan), wearing jeans at home (nope), and the polarizing return of the low-rise-jean trend (biggest nope). "It's kind of offensive!" "I'm excited about embracing fashion again; I've been dressing up for myself," Sophie told the magazine. "It's actually really annoying though, because just as I've had a baby, everyone all of a sudden wants to wear low-rise jeans. It's kind of offensive!" It's true: though high-waisted jeans still reign supreme for many, the low-rise-jean trend has been creeping its way back into the mainstream, with the hip-hugging silhouette appearing in some runway shows again.

These Spring Jeans Are Selling Out Fast at Zara, Monki and Free People

They say three's a trend, so here is my evidence that printed jeans are set to be the surprise smash hit for spring 2021…1. Before they were even released online, both myself and Joy Montgomery, Who What Wear's shopping editor, decided that we needed to get Monki's squiggly-print monochrome jeans and matching knitted crop top (pictured above). Neither of us would normally wear printed jeans (in fact, I very rarely wear denim at all), and both of us often buy vintage instead of new high-street items, but here we were, poised to snap them up. Sadly for us, within minutes of coming online earlier this week, they had sold out in every size from a UK 4 up to a 20. A similar floral-stamped style at Zara sold out within mere moments this week, and it also came with a matching crop top. A coinc...
