Trend Alert: Denim Nip/Tuck

The latest trends in denim have been very interesting. You have the young'uns doing the gladiator tuck, gorgeous women wearing their man's baggy jeans, and a variety of denim nip/tuck. This just proves how creative the all-American fabric can be. Whether it's old-fashioned pegging or preppy cuffing, or a mix of both, this trend has me nonplussed. I don't like the look on a baggier jean — see Katie Holmes — but I do like a more laid-back subtle cuff, a la Rachel Bilson. SJP was playing with her jean hemlines months ago, going bike messenger style with the one cuff on one leg. Here's some guidelines, but my advice is: Show off stunning shoes, keep proportions in control, and do not leave the house if you aren't comfortable with your newfound nip/tuck.

Hiddeous look. Especially SJP... it looks like she was scratching her leg and just forgot to put the pant cuff down. Seriously. Plus she already has a long horse face... don't add on to it.

I LOVE this look! I live in Tokyo and it's very fashionable here. The humidity is so crazy here that I understand why it's done here. Also, wearing flats and sneakers is practically forbidden here, so with heels this trend really works. At least Katie and Rachel's do!

I am such a dork but I really hate rolled denim cuffs, it makes me feel like I'm ten again.

I think Katie looks fabulous. Love her new hair and the style is great. She looks a million bucks but in a way that we can dress too - and hopefully look as great!

I actually love this look because I already wear it all the time. I agree that if you want to see it done in a different way to click your way over to jcrew.com. All sorts of photos of models pulling off the look.

I was thinking JCrew too bellechic27. In fact they've been showing off that rolled up look with their vintage slim jeans on their models for the past year. I like the look (if not too extreme) and prefer it to cuffed. Its unfortunate that every time I do it now everyone is going to think I want to be like Katie Holmes.http://www.jcrew.com/AST/Browse/WomenBrowse/Women_Shop_By_Category/denim/vintageslim/PRDOVR~92222/92222.jsp

You have got to be kidding me. Katie is so desperate to make this '80's trend new again. She looks like a fool. Give up girl this look is not flattering. Buy jeans that fit or get cropped ones if you want to show off your shoes.Horrible!!!!!!!!

At first I was not so much of a fan...but the more I look at it the more I like it. Its different...not bad different just different. I would pair these type of jeans with a more conservative top...more jcrew like. Definitely an option for most women.
