As much as we love experimenting with of-the-moment colors and new silhouettes, we often find that it’s hard to resist a tried-and-true wardrobe staple. Case in point: cuffed jeans, a timeless style that’s looking chic anew! We’re crazy about the classic look of cuffed denim and appreciate their versatility and universal appeal.
Whether you decide to team them with luxe evening pieces a la Ashley Olsen or use them to showcase ankle-strap shoes like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the styling options are endless, which is why we’re showcasing a few top-notch outfit ideas in today’s How They Wear story!  One thing we especially like about this denim style is that it perfectly shows off a pair of ankle-strap shoes, which Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Pixie Geldof both aptly demonstrated. The former was snapped arriving at LAX this summer wearing an off-duty ensemble consisting of an Isabel Marant leather jacket, Chloe ankle-strap flats, and a pair of J Brand cuffed jeans. While the model/actress’ outfit is a bit boyish-thanks to the combination of slouchy jeans, a tough leather jacket, and a simple gray t-shirt-the cuffed jeans really spotlight her dainty, delicate shoes, which give the overall look a nice dose of femininity. Geldof showed off a similar idea at a Ray-Ban event in London earlier this month. She picked classic staples-a blue and white striped shirt and a leopard bag-and then cuffed her dark jeans to allow her statement-making red ankle-strap sandals to take center stage.  In addition to showcasing ankle-strap heels, cuffed jeans also work well when paired with another one of the season’s hot-ticket items: cozy sweaters. For example, Rihanna was snapped leaving a hotel in New York back in September in a laidback outfit consisting of a striped top, black creepers, and our jeans du jour. We love how the perennially cool songstress teamed her denim with a pair of creepers, which added a tough-girl vibe we adore. Additionally, we’re smitten with the way model Frida Gustavsson interpreted today’s trend, as seen on Stockholm Streetstyle. Her slouchy separates, including an oversized coral sweater and boyfriend jeans, provided the perfect canvas to show off a statement necklace and created an enviable, easygoing outfit.  While cuffed jeans are always an excellent choice for casual daytime attire, they work equally well for a night out too. Simply look to Ashley Olsen and Rachel Bilson for inspiration, as both style mavens teamed their rolled-up denim with pointy-toe heels and chic jackets to create party-ready ensembles. Olsen attended a play at the Second Stage Theatre in New York this summer wearing a blazer, top, and bag by The Row with vintage jeans and Manolo Blahnik shoes. While jeans are usually reserved for more casual affairs, Olsen effectively dressed up her pick by adding sophisticated, all-noir pieces, resulting in one au courant evening look.
Bilson was on the same chic page when she attended a celebration for her December Nylon cover in Los Angeles earlier this month. She made her Goldsign Jenny Jeans ($290) in Debut red-carpet ready by adding a Vanessa Bruno jacket, The Row tee, Christian Louboutin pumps, and a Miu Miu clutch. We especially love her metallic topper, which instantly enlivened her ensemble and added just the right amount of glitz.

Sartorially speaking, shorts don’t get much respect. Pleat-front, fanny-pack-bedecked, cargo-embellished, and high-waisted mom shorts may be sneered at and the category as a whole might be considered a put-down (at least when discussed by Bart Simpson), but forget all that because today we are showcasing some seriously chic and spruced up styles. While denim cut-offs have enjoyed prominence for some time now, the looks we’re talking about are more along the lines of the directional runway pieces seen on the S/S 09 runways of Dolce & Gabbana and Prada. When Domenico, Stefano, and Miuccia are all on the bandwagon, it’s clear the garment has transcended its German-tourist-at-Disneyland reputation. More daring than a tapered-trouser and less overtly sexy than a body-con mini, today we are highlighting the next generation in abbreviated bottoms. Just take some styling direction from today’s subjects and in no time at all, you’ll be ready to take a spin in this summer’s chic shorts! Thankfully, our well-dressed subjects provided us with myriad variations on the style, but there are a couple of fundamentals that should always be adhered to. Specifically, though you can play with different lengths, the most appropriate proportion for this incarnation of formal shorts is slightly voluminous (perhaps a stowaway from fall’s harem trend?). Another suggestion: take a pair of pants you have relegated to the back of your closet, and have them altered to mid-thigh height. You may end up with a satin diaper, but you may also end up with an incredibly desirable D-I-Y design on your hands! Although all of our trendsetters opted for tucked in blouses (graphically-print tops, lacy blousons, and simple or sheer black are all lovely compliments!), be sure to spruce up the look with a great heel, a statement piece of jewelry, and, of course, plenty of leg (try the lightweight and hydrating Naked Body Butter Lite ($29) from Bliss to keep your gams looking glam!) Proportion and pairing options aside, we’ve noticed that many members of the fashionable crowd are partial to dressy shorts that come in interesting prints and rich materials. While attending Bulgari’s “Between Eternity and History” dinner party, Margherita Missoni (the de-facto poster girl for her family’s luxury line) picked a wonderfully patterned short-and-top combo from-you guessed it-Missoni’s S/S09 collection. Historically known for their kaleidoscopic knits, we think her Mammola Jumpsuit ($2496, 212.517.9339) is a modern marvel; try See by Chloe’s High-Waisted Shorts ($206) with a concentrically circled chemise to achieve Missoni’s tasteful take. Meanwhile, Elle's newest staffer, Olivia Palermo, provided another example of how to wear a dressier short in a more subtle pattern at the launch festivities for Matthew Williamson's for H&M earlier this summer.
The City-star’s Stone Embellished Boucle Dion Shorts ($40), from the Swedish purveyors of fast-fashion looked quite snazzy with her Chanel clutch and Topshop necklace (try their Fabric Wrapped Chain Necklace ($40) for an equally high-impact and high-street piece!). Though Palermo’s pick won’t be available until late August, we can recommend Silence & Noise’s High-Waisted Shorts ($38), which are available now to help you achieve her assemblage. Another way to up the chic ante when it comes to shorts is to choose a pair in unexpected material, like leather, as jewelry designer Genevieve Jones did at a private screening of The Brother’s Bloom. We’ve spotted other sartorially savvy ladies like Gwyneth Paltrow and Lauren Santo Domingo in Proenza Schouler’s High Waist Leather Short ($1150), but we like Ms. Jones’ interpretation the best. Leather shorts work well for breezy al fresco evening events, and will look smart with opaque tights well into fall. Be sure to snag the Proenza pair, or check out Brigid Catiis’ Bubble Shorts ($154) for a look-a-like alternative. Of course, some of today’s subjects opted to wear simpler styles. Kate Moss, fashion icon par excellence, picked flared shorts with pleating detail to run errands in London with boyfriend Jamie Hince. Though it helps to have never-ending stems, anyone can look Moss-marvelous in Forever 21’s Marina Shorts ($20). Another interesting hem-choice comes to us vis-à-vis industry-darling, Diane Kruger, who opted to dabble in the season’s key khakis while attending some shows during Mercedes Benz’ Berlin F/W 2010 fashion week. Her ensemble was both casual and chic, and we love how her delicate lacy blouse creates a nice contrast with her more utilitarian cuffed bottoms; J. Crew’s Poplin Shorts ($40) mimic Kruger’s pocketed pair and would look great with your favorite Victorian top. Finally, we have LA Candy author, Lauren Conrad who looked quite polished in Alex Lane’s Pleated Silk Shorts ($169). Her rolled-hemmed version is perfectly understated and elegant, but we think Topshop’s Silk Shorts ($60) would look just as posh with a tucked-in top for a book signing or just a night on the town.

Like clockwork every spring, sweet pastel shades, from sky blue to mint green to lavender, emerge as a front-runner trend among in-the-know stylephiles. And although girly girls typically favor the pretty Easter egg-inspired colors, we recently noticed an array of tastemakers wearing pastels in a slightly edgier—and totally refreshing—way! In honor of the first official day of spring, which was yesterday, we rounded up a few stunning examples to show you just How They Wear this lovely seasonal trend.

Since there’s still a chill in the air come spring, finding a standout outerwear option is key to achieving the perfect pastel-colored ensemble. Both Sarah Jessica Parker and Hanneli Mustaparta gravitated towards dusky blue coats to keep them warm and stylish! At the Louis Vuitton F/W 12 show in Paris just a few weeks ago, Parker turned up in the label’s white lace dress and blue coat (the former is from the S/S 05 collection and the latter from S/S 03, so sadly, both are no longer available).

While these two pieces afford her look with ladylike sophistication, Parker’s well-chosen accessories, like white gloves and Louis Vuitton’s sleek Merry Go Round Pumps ($1056, 866.884.8866) in White Calf Leather, provide fashion-forward flair.

The actress even allowed her black bra to peek through the lace dress, injecting her feminine outfit with a dose of provocative edge. We also love the way Mustaparta styled her Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Mohair Coat With Patch Pockets ($1650) from the F/W 11 collection. At the Derek Lam F/W 12 show in New York in mid-February, she expertly layered her fuzzy coat over a cream sweater, Tibi’s white leather jacket, and Rag & Bone’s Skinny Pants ($176, 212.278.8214) in Winter White Corduroy.

The model/blogger has a skilled eye for mixing different textures (mohair and leather) and colors (varying off-white shades) together. Topped off with an intricate Proenza Schouler necklace from the F/W 11 collection and a pair of black slippers, Mustaparta’s outfit is chic and cozy.

CUTE! Victoria Beckham And Harper Seven Wear Matching Outfits For Beijing Trip

Ooh would you look at that gorgeous outfit! The sleek hair do! The perfect pout! No, we’re not talking about Victoria Beckham (this time) — we are, in fact, on about about that gorgeous little Harper Seven. Isn’t she adorable?

The mother and daughter duo were out and about in Beijing today and although we fully appreciate Mrs Beckham's chic black shift dress worn with matching tights and mega-high boots, it's Harper's ensemble that's caught our eye. Note the cutsey floral top, rose-coloured jeans, dainty hair bow and BABY CONVERSE! Cue high-pitched ahhhing. As Baby Becklett hits xx, it seems she’s graduated from the pretty little dress to the oh-so-grown-up coloured jeans and we like.

If you’ve been following Victoria’s tweets as she frolicks through the Chinese capital, you’ll know the designer has been giving us an insight into her and Harper’s matchy-matchy outfits. Praise be for VB! So far we’ve seen a sharp grey shift with black cuffs and collars from Victoria Beckham’s Autumn Winter 2012 collection (for Lady Becks) and a pattered frock also with a grey collar (for Mini Becks), which were selected for the launch of the ‘baby’ Range Rover Evoque this weekend. For Day 2 in Beijing, Vic slipped into another LBD (this time a halterneck) while Harper wore a plaid blouse with blue neck tie, classic blue jeans and those super-sweet Converse. And for their grand arrival on Friday, the designer wore another of her own cuffs-and-collars shift dresses while Harper was in a teeny checked dress. How we love that VB does what we’ve long suspected: coordinate her and Harper’s outfits to perfection.

Beauty How To Video: Sculpt Your Cheekbones Like Keira Knightley’s

Here in the Grazia Beauty department, we’ve been know to get more than a little bit over excited about sculpting.  No, we’re not talking about hacking away at stone but rather using our extensive cupboard of bronzers, blushers and concealers to give the impression that we have cheekbones as sky-high as Keira Knightley, Kate Moss et al. We learnt a few tricks backstage at Blugirl’s Spring Summer 2012 show but wouldn’t dream of keeping them all to ourselves so make-up maestro Rachel Singer Clarke is back with another beauty how-to video to show you exactly how it’s done. Listen and learn, ladies…

Her rolled-hemmed version is perfectly understated and elegant, but we think Topshop’s Silk Shorts ($60) would look just as posh with a tucked-in top for a book signing or just a night on the town.

Sartorially speaking, shorts don’t get much respect. Pleat-front, fanny-pack-bedecked, cargo-embellished, and high-waisted mom shorts may be sneered at and the category as a whole might be considered a put-down (at least when discussed by Bart Simpson), but forget all that because today we are showcasing some seriously chic and spruced up styles. While denim cut-offs have enjoyed prominence for some time now, the looks we’re talking about are more along the lines of the directional runway pieces seen on the S/S 09 runways of Dolce & Gabbana and Prada. When Domenico, Stefano, and Miuccia are all on the bandwagon, it’s clear the garment has transcended its German-tourist-at-Disneyland reputation. More daring than a tapered-trouser and less overtly sexy than a body-con mini, today we are highlighting the next generation in abbreviated bottoms. Just take some styling direction from today’s subjects and in no time at all, you’ll be ready to take a spin in this summer’s chic shorts!

Thankfully, our well-dressed subjects provided us with myriad variations on the style, but there are a couple of fundamentals that should always be adhered to. Specifically, though you can play with different lengths, the most appropriate proportion for this incarnation of formal shorts is slightly voluminous (perhaps a stowaway from fall’s harem trend?). Another suggestion: take a pair of pants you have relegated to the back of your closet, and have them altered to mid-thigh height. You may end up with a satin diaper, but you may also end up with an incredibly desirable D-I-Y design on your hands! Although all of our trendsetters opted for tucked in blouses (graphically-print tops, lacy blousons, and simple or sheer black are all lovely compliments!), be sure to spruce up the look with a great heel, a statement piece of jewelry, and, of course, plenty of leg (try the lightweight and hydrating Naked Body Butter Lite ($29) from Bliss to keep your gams looking glam!)

Proportion and pairing options aside, we’ve noticed that many members of the fashionable crowd are partial to dressy shorts that come in interesting prints and rich materials. While attending Bulgari’s “Between Eternity and History” dinner party, Margherita Missoni (the de-facto poster girl for her family’s luxury line) picked a wonderfully patterned short-and-top combo from-you guessed it-Missoni’s S/S09 collection. Historically known for their kaleidoscopic knits, we think her Mammola Jumpsuit ($2496, 212.517.9339) is a modern marvel; try See by Chloe’s High-Waisted Shortsicon ($206) with a concentrically circled chemise to achieve Missoni’s tasteful take. Meanwhile, Elle's newest staffer, Olivia Palermo, provided another example of how to wear a dressier short in a more subtle pattern at the launch festivities for Matthew Williamson's for H&M earlier this summer.

The City-star’s Stone Embellished Boucle Dion Shorts ($40), from the Swedish purveyors of fast-fashion looked quite snazzy with her Chanel clutch and Topshop necklace (try their Fabric Wrapped Chain Necklace ($40) for an equally high-impact and high-street piece!). Though Palermo’s pick won’t be available until late August, we can recommend Silence & Noise’s High-Waisted Shorts ($38), which are available now to help you achieve her assemblage.

Another way to up the chic ante when it comes to shorts is to choose a pair in unexpected material, like leather, as jewelry designer Genevieve Jones did at a private screening of The Brother’s Bloom. We’ve spotted other sartorially savvy ladies like Gwyneth Paltrow and Lauren Santo Domingo in Proenza Schouler’s High Waist Leather Shorticon ($1150), but we like Ms. Jones’ interpretation the best. Leather shorts work well for breezy al fresco evening events, and will look smart with opaque tights well into fall. Be sure to snag the Proenza pair, or check out Brigid Catiis’ Bubble Shorts ($154) for a look-a-like alternative.

Of course, some of today’s subjects opted to wear simpler styles. Kate Moss, fashion icon par excellence, picked flared shorts with pleating detail to run errands in London with boyfriend Jamie Hince. Though it helps to have never-ending stems, anyone can look Moss-marvelous in Forever 21’s Marina Shorts ($20). Another interesting hem-choice comes to us vis-à-vis industry-darling, Diane Kruger, who opted to dabble in the season’s key khakis while attending some shows during Mercedes Benz’ Berlin F/W 2010 fashion week. Her ensemble was both casual and chic, and we love how her delicate lacy blouse creates a nice contrast with her more utilitarian cuffed bottoms; J. Crew’s Poplin Shorts ($40) mimic Kruger’s pocketed pair and would look great with your favorite Victorian top. Finally, we have LA Candy author, Lauren Conrad who looked quite polished in Alex Lane’s Pleated Silk Shorts ($169). Her rolled-hemmed version is perfectly understated and elegant, but we think Topshop’s Silk Shorts ($60) would look just as posh with a tucked-in top for a book signing or just a night on the town.

Like clockwork every spring, sweet pastel shades, from sky blue to mint green to lavender, emerge as a front-runner trend among in-the-know stylephiles. And although girly girls typically favor the pretty Easter egg-inspired colors, we recently noticed an array of tastemakers wearing pastels in a slightly edgier—and totally refreshing—way! In honor of the first official day of spring, which was yesterday, we rounded up a few stunning examples to show you just How They Wear this lovely seasonal trend.

Since there’s still a chill in the air come spring, finding a standout outerwear option is key to achieving the perfect pastel-colored ensemble. Both Sarah Jessica Parker and Hanneli Mustaparta gravitated towards dusky blue coats to keep them warm and stylish! At the Louis Vuitton F/W 12 show in Paris just a few weeks ago, Parker turned up in the label’s white lace dress and blue coat (the former is from the S/S 05 collection and the latter from S/S 03, so sadly, both are no longer available).

While these two pieces afford her look with ladylike sophistication, Parker’s well-chosen accessories, like white gloves and Louis Vuitton’s sleek Merry Go Round Pumps ($1056, 866.884.8866) in White Calf Leather, provide fashion-forward flair.

The actress even allowed her black bra to peek through the lace dress, injecting her feminine outfit with a dose of provocative edge. We also love the way Mustaparta styled her Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Mohair Coat With Patch Pockets ($1650) from the F/W 11 collection. At the Derek Lam F/W 12 show in New York in mid-February, she expertly layered her fuzzy coat over a cream sweater, Tibi’s white leather jacket, and Rag & Bone’s Skinny Pants ($176, 212.278.8214) in Winter White Corduroy.

The model/blogger has a skilled eye for mixing different textures (mohair and leather) and colors (varying off-white shades) together. Topped off with an intricate Proenza Schouler necklace from the F/W 11 collection and a pair of black slippers, Mustaparta’s outfit is chic and cozy.

CUTE! Victoria Beckham And Harper Seven Wear Matching Outfits For Beijing Trip

Ooh would you look at that gorgeous outfit! The sleek hair do! The perfect pout! No, we’re not talking about Victoria Beckham (this time) — we are, in fact, on about about that gorgeous little Harper Seven. Isn’t she adorable?

The mother and daughter duo were out and about in Beijing today and although we fully appreciate Mrs Beckham's chic black shift dress worn with matching tights and mega-high boots, it's Harper's ensemble that's caught our eye. Note the cutsey floral top, rose-coloured jeans, dainty hair bow and BABY CONVERSE! Cue high-pitched ahhhing. As Baby Becklett hits xx, it seems she’s graduated from the pretty little dress to the oh-so-grown-up coloured jeans and we like.

If you’ve been following Victoria’s tweets as she frolicks through the Chinese capital, you’ll know the designer has been giving us an insight into her and Harper’s matchy-matchy outfits. Praise be for VB! So far we’ve seen a sharp grey shift with black cuffs and collars from Victoria Beckham’s Autumn Winter 2012 collection (for Lady Becks) and a pattered frock also with a grey collar (for Mini Becks), which were selected for the launch of the ‘baby’ Range Rover Evoque this weekend. For Day 2 in Beijing, Vic slipped into another LBD (this time a halterneck) while Harper wore a plaid blouse with blue neck tie, classic blue jeans and those super-sweet Converse. And for their grand arrival on Friday, the designer wore another of her own cuffs-and-collars shift dresses while Harper was in a teeny checked dress. How we love that VB does what we’ve long suspected: coordinate her and Harper’s outfits to perfection.

Beauty How To Video: Sculpt Your Cheekbones Like Keira Knightley’s

Here in the Grazia Beauty department, we’ve been know to get more than a little bit over excited about sculpting.  No, we’re not talking about hacking away at stone but rather using our extensive cupboard of bronzers, blushers and concealers to give the impression that we have cheekbones as sky-high as Keira Knightley, Kate Moss et al. We learnt a few tricks backstage at Blugirl’s Spring Summer 2012 show but wouldn’t dream of keeping them all to ourselves so make-up maestro Rachel Singer Clarke is back with another beauty how-to video to show you exactly how it’s done. Listen and learn, ladies…
