It’s the little things, they say. And I agree. You could have the perfect shoe and the perfect pants on, but if you don’t style them properly you may end up looking like a doofus, and no one wants that.

I’ve been seeing pumps everywhere lately, and been loving the different ways women have been styling them.  Whether its with a torn pair of jeans, sleek leather pants, or a prim skirt, it looks oh so hot.

The key is deciding what look you’re going for, and then executing that to the fullest. Here are a few examples that have caught my eye:

I love whats happening here because the  jean is quite tapered till the end, and she lets the length bunch up just enough at the ankle not to overwhelm the shoe, but give it a more casual feeling, also worth noting how amazing her velvet blue pumps are. Image via Jak & Jil.

In this next look, I enjoyed the slightly baggy jean rolled just once covering the ankle, and even though she is wearing a chunkier heeled shoe, the feminine print is a great juxtaposition to the masculinity of the jean. Image via

Sometimes less is more, and that’s exactly why this works, the details on her Valentino pumps are just so beautiful, that wearing a dark wash cigarette jean was certainly the right move. Although a a white denim could have been great here too. Image via the theclotheswhisperer.
By far one of my favorite looks here.  The pink metallic Wang loafer pumps are incredible all on their own, but when paired with these beat up slightly flared lightwash jean they really transform into something that’s intergalactic.  Swoon.via
Last but not least, my legs. These mellow yellow pumps (Zara) are so dainty and sweet that it felt right to pair them with a bulkier large cuff and a dark denim.  And there’s nothing wrong with showing off a little ankle once in a while. image via

You say, what’s all this got to do with thrifting.. well, jeans don’t have to be expensive or designer to cuff. As a matter of fact a thrift store is a great place to buy a pair and tear up…try it. its quite liberating and a fun DIY project, and if you’re feeling brave, play with bleach too.
