My take on the J Crew look

J Crew:
J Crew:

I like the look of casually rolled up jeans as seen in the past few seasons' J Crew catalogs, but have never worn my jeans this way before.  This is my new JC jacket and top -- with my old jeans:

Or do you prefer it the traditional way below??

Crew Girl in Canada recently asked a similar question and I'm still undecided about the rolled look, although the SA at my store does it and she always looks great (AND she's probably late 40's to 50's).

I think the rolled jeans are for a very very casual look, and unrolled is for a more polished look.

Shasta said...

I agree with Purple Flowers. You, my dear, look just lovely and elegant both ways!

I like them both ways as well ... too cute!

And yes, we are in the same boat because the ortho told me yesterday that I will need bottom braces again as well ... sigh

you look amazing (even w/o your pretty face) both ways- rolled is kinda fun for spring- rock it!

I think this look is fantastic on your Petunia! It would be great for a casual afternoon then unroll the jeans for a dinner out!

I love the rolled jeans look - check out the Jack Wills almanac online and see how they ahve done it there with a tweed jacket and some cool shoes - loved it. Both looks with the jeans look great with those shoes you ahve on, and the jacket - but as someone else mentioned, I think it all dependd where you are going.

First off I'm IN-LOVE with that jacket. And, am thinking I need to purchase it (especially after seeing how cute it is on you) for a First-Date on Monday (ahh). But as for the jeans. I think you can completely pull off the rolled jeans look but I think it also looks great the traditional way. One jacket - 2 great looks!!! xoxo

I think you look great both ways, and your Crocodile Jacket looks absolutely fabulous on you, too.

What part of Florida are you in?

Jaina said...

I think they both look cute, but I'm more of a traditional jeans hanging down kinda girl.

Jill said...

You look so cute in both looks. I like them both... this is a tough one. I think the rolled jeans are cute for daytime or casual dinner. The un-rolled jeans are cute for a nicer dinner or evening.
