Supermodel Karlie Kloss laced up a pair of roller skates to star in the Frame Denim Spring 2014 ad campaign, complete with 70s inspired bell bottoms and romantic wavy hair. This ad comes as a follow up to her collaboration with the brand in 2013. Says Fashion Gone Rogue, “The American model is the epitome of seventies chic in a pair of flared denim pants with a white asymmetrically cut bodysuit. Karlie trades in her signature short crop for a longer ‘do in the black and white image.” Yep, we’re in love.

Winter is a great time of year to rock that jeans and boots look, no matter what type of boots or fit of jean. With the right pair of jeans, you’ll have months of hassle-free street style looks. For ankle boots, wear cropped jeans or try cuffing them with a thin cuff for a delicate look. Skinny or boyfriend jeans work. For tall boots, wear denim leggings or skinny jeans. They stay in your boots better and are less likely to pinch. Avoid wearing slim or boot cut jeans if you want to tuck them in. You want a sleek silhouette. Now, all you have to do is throw on the perfect knit top or wintry coat to complete the look.
