I’m amused that people are so aghast over Katie Holmes’ recent outings in rolled-up jeans.
We all said we would never wear skinny, bell-bottom, high-waisted or acid-washed jeans again, and those have all made a comeback. Basically, never is the next new thing. So why not try roll-ups?
Katie’s pair looks like the Acne Jeans style I was pondering here. I’m going to have to stop being so lazy and just try them on, or I’ll always be wondering if I’m missing out on a good thing.
Oh Lady E says
I think she looks cute and comfortable…
And you should definitely try the Acne jeans!
Savvy Gal says
katie look brought back the good old days, uh… we used to do that back in the days. so why not, as long as she is comfortable.
Sharon Rose says
Hi Wendy-yes I would most probably try this trend too!!
You’re totally right! If someone says often enough “It’s trend” everyone will wear it.
I’ve seen rolled up pants and jeans in editorials in a couple of magazines at least already – so Katie’s stylist isn’t completely coming out of left field. Just wait til she wears some hammer pants!
Diabolina 3.1 says
love when i’m first AND your source for breaking fashion news.
She actually looks pretty chic. I may have to try and pull this off once the weather finishes being too hot to handle.
I’m actually a fan of the pegged jean.
Of course, I’m a dork.
Maybe Tom was wearing the jeans before she left the house and Katie forgot to unroll them after putting them on to go out, thereby inadvertantley starting a fashion trend.
I may be in the minority here, but those are atrocious. I don’t necessarily mind the roll-ups, but the shape just looks unflattering.
However, there’s gotta be someone who can pull ’em off stylishly. I wouldn’t be surprised if you’re the one to do so!
I like rolled up jeans, but I couldn’t pull it off like Katie. I’d look about 3 ft. tall. Maybe rolled up bootlegs would look better on me?
Tell us how your jean trying-on goes!
Really, you should. This look would be great on you, as it is on Katie Holmes. Her shoes are brilliant, too!
Dammit, I knew I shouldn’t have stopped tight-rolling* my jeans 18 years ago.
fashion herald says
i think she looks adorable. Why do people get so upset with Katie, esp. the hair? I love it when she cuts her hair short, and everyone gets all offended!
Those look like those Current/Eliott Boyfriend jeans that all the fashionistas are in a froth over right now. I kinda love it — they look cute and comfy, and fab with the flats. Say what you will about Ms. Holmes’ potentially questionable life choices, the gal’s got style and great taste. (And the means to indulge it, thanks to above-mentioned choices. I know I’d put up with a lot to have her shopping budget.)
Ashe Mischief says
I don’t mind that they are rolled up, but I wish they were fitted a bit more (like the Acne jeans you so right love!). Then they’d look a wee cuter with the flats. But she does look comfy!
hmmmm im not too sure
I love the idea of rolled up jeans! Katie’s pair might have looked better if they were a little more fitted but who cares, let her do her thing!
Make Do and Mend says
I love nothing more than a roll up – not sure Katie’s got the right jeans though. Love her silver flats
Times of Glory says
Oh yes, there is no harm to try them on! You are absolutely right! We never know what really suit us until see them on ourselves xxxxx
Susie Bubble says
What exactly is wrong with them… I don’t get it… she’s bumming around with some slouchy jeans that are probably too long for her….
miss cavendish says
Oy vey–my first comment is lost somewhere. Anyway, I said that I like these on Katie and that they remind me of a pair of striped demin (!) boyfriend jeans that the NYT recently hightlighted.
I would probably not wear these I’m too close to the eighties–I wore these then and don’t wish to return. But Katie was probably 10 or younger(?!) in the 80s, and so these wouldn’t seem nostalgic to her.
The roll up is worth a shot.
Always In Style says
I have mixed feelings about this trend — it is straight 80s — and after looking at pictures of myself in those rolled up jeans and parachute pants I’m not so sure that trying it a second time will make it any better!
Alice Olive says
Funny you should post this. I actually thought she looked slightly cute and I usually think she looks slightly blaaah. The silver ballet flats caught me too.
Jen (MahaloFashion) says
I’m not sure about the rolled up jeans but the silver flats ar adorable.
Stop! Don’t do it! Look into the liiiiggghhht!!!
but… but… i like this look! and i roll up my jeans as well occasionally. the only time one shouldn’t roll up their jeans is when they’re wearing the bootleg cut cos then it just looks really weird imo
i was thinking she looked pretty chic and relaxed. would i do it? probably not. then again, i also said i wouldn’t eat that donut yesterday…
I actually think the look’s cute and chic. Deal with being aghast about trends that supposedly will never come back is that. . the trends will come back; and maybe people enjoy eating their words.
That look wouldn’t suit everyone, but Katie is really tall and very adorable, so she looks great.
♥ Marta ♥ says
I really do love this look 🙂
I don’t know why people are horrified. I love a slouchy, relaxed jean, especially with something fitted on top.
