Dare to bareWednesday, October 3 2012



No doubt you have been doing it for years now, but the ‘dare to bare’ roll-up is not something that I attempt on a regular basis. Not because I don’t think it looks chic, clearly (uh uh) it does. No, the reason is more one of execution. You see, some people -those who are born with style in their blood- make it look so easy. These people arethe same [annoying] few who can drape a jacket without looking like a helicopter, or casually weartheir tee ‘tucked/untucked’ without it seeming overplayed. Well, let me tell you, I am not part of the club. Andusually when Itry to pull off’the roll-up’, I invariablyend up looking like I’m just off clam fishing. So when it does work, the need to immortalise is very strong.Therefore I got the camera out and did just that. It was, to coin a nifty phrase,a one-off show-off. Toodles.

I’m wearing Zara skinny jeans and Zara Studio plexi heels.

    I've tried the tucked/untucked look in the mirror so many times but I always end up looking like a prat! Usually you can style it like that well enough for a photo but to wear out of the house… no. I'll just never have that style.

    J'ai la sensation que le "roulage de pantalon" est véritablement inné.

    Excellent roll-up – congrats 😉 The worst roll up is when it starts out looking good and by the time I'm home after work I look like one of those bike riders with one short leg vs one long leg – and I don't even know until I'm home. Oh well we can but try…

  • Emma Westbrook

    I absolutely love those shoes and I have to admit that I'm a fan of the roll-up look to the point where I tend to wear my jeans like that way more often than I should!

    You're so right, flaunt those ankles! I do feel like you should be a bit nicer for yourself though, when I saw you in Lisbon wearing just jeans shorts and a white top you looked stunning, so I do feel like it comes quite natural for you!
