Oh the horror, I must be getting old because a fashion flashback is making me nauseous because I now sadly remember doing this with my Guess jeans! Am I finally old enough to see fashion history come full circle!!!!????
It looks like the old “peg and roll” is back in style, albeit a tad different then how we wore them in the 80’s. This time around the “peg and roll” is rolled a bit higher up the leg so they look more like capri jeans and the jeans are also worn baggier and looser, more like a boyfriend jean. The general concept to “peg and roll” is to fold the jeans vertically around the leg to make them a bit tighter and then roll them up the leg so they hit about mid-calf.
We can thank Los Angeles stylists, turned designers Emily Current and Merritt Elliott for the return of “peg and roll” jeans with their oh so hot line of denim aptly named Current Elliott. The most popular style is the Boyfriend Jean that is already pre-rolled for perfection and has a looser, comfy fit. The rolled leg is perfect for showing off a pair of super high sexy heels. Pair them with a loose lacy cami and a “grandpa cardigan” for an oh-so stylish look. Check out the full line of Current Elliott at www.eluxury.com and www.shopintuition.com.
