SHORT AND SWEET Flood pants—with a flare—are back. This denim cut is a throw­back to Jane Birkin, but to­day, keep the hem­lines frayed, as it’s the only amount of dis­tress­ing you want with this style. Blouse, $70, gap­canada.ca. Yoga jeans, $138, sec­ond­cloth­ing.com. Ear­rings, ba­nanare­pub­lic.ca. Denim shoes, callitspring.com.

RETRO RE­VIVAL This ’70s sil­hou­ette en­hances curves and helps elon­gate legs. Get max­i­mum length by keep­ing hem­lines long and wear­ing a plat­form heel—the trick is con­ceal­ing your shoes. Vest, $100, gap­canada.ca. Sweater, $40, hm.com/ca. Jeans, $100, win­ners.ca. Marc Ja­cobs sun­glasses, thebay.com. Neck­lace, caro­line neron.com. Bracelet, ba­nanare­pub­lic.ca. Belt, brave leather.com. Bag, ec­co­canada.com. Shoes, joefresh.com.

OFF THE CUFF Cuff­ing your jeans isn’t a new con­cept, but this sea­son, the state­ment is big­ger and bolder than the usual fold and roll we’re ac­cus­tomed to. The ex­ag­ger­ated look brings a bit of edge to any en­sem­ble. Jacket, $45, old­navy.ca. T-shirt, $15, uniqlo.ca. 7 for All Mankind jeans, $298, nord­strom.com. Marc Ja­cobs sun­glasses, thebay.com. Ear­rings and bracelet, carolineneron.com. Sneak­ers, ec­co­canada.com.

SKINNY DIP­PING It’s hard to re­mem­ber a time when skinny jeans weren’t the stan­dard in denim. The slim sil­hou­ette is still the shape du jour and can be found in just about ev­ery wash, colour, pat­tern and level of dis­tress. Jacket, $178, roots.com. Top, $35, hm.com/ca. Jeans, $39, joefresh.com. Bag, aldoshoes.com. San­dals, ba­nanare­pub­lic.ca.

CROP IT TO ME Wide-legged cropped denim is a new take on the trouser jean. Hems vary, but the most flat­ter­ing length is about an inch above the an­kle. Al­ways pair the look with heels—the dain­tier, the bet­ter. Knit top, $60, gap­canada.ca. Jeans, $110, ear­rings, cuff and clutch, ba­nanare­pub­lic.ca. Shoes, aldoshoes.com.
