Truth is, I've been thinking about this styling trick I saw on my fave Danish Instagram gal for months, turning it over in the proverbial palm of my hand and waiting for someone closer to home to come along and really seal the deal. The time has finally come: Jeline Catt has done it, and very soon—we're calling it!—so will you.
Back story: Last May, I flew to sunny, sizzling Bangkok with Gucci for a media viewing of the famed Italian label's Fall-Winter 2019 collection. One of the tips I tried on to take home? Cinch too-long pants with your lace-up stilettos!
Among the many, many ways you can tackle pooling trouser legs (count cuffing or simply letting the hems sweep the floor as you walk among our personal favorites), this one feels particularly fresh and fun. If you've got yourself a pair of those very on-trend, barely-there strappy sandals that everyone's strutting this summer, loop them around (and not under!) your pant ankles to create a makeshift jodhpur-like silhouette no one in your circle has likely done before. Cue the copycats.
Oh, and the aforementioned Danish girl is none other than Pernille Teisbaek, by the way! Just thought you might appreciate the reference.
