But if there's one lesson we've learned from Sarah Jessica Parker, it's that sticking with what you know and love always pays off. On top of having a thing for grey jeans, the actress and designer also enjoys cropped pairs. For years, we've seen her pants hit just above the ankle, a trick that helps to elongate her legs and make her appear taller - despite the fact that she's only 5'3.
Whether she's wearing baggier fits or opting for sleek and slim, completing her outfit with heels or sliding on sneakers, Parker's best jeans outfits all adhere to this one simple yet important rule. Take a closer look at why it works, ahead, before giving it a try yourself.
She's been wearing this style for decades.
While this trick has an elongating effect, it's also a great way to show off some chunky socks.
Or at least investing in "short" jeans styles if you're petite.
No cutting and sewing required.
Parker has worn cropped pants with sneakers, letting a little bit of ankle show.
In this case, heels added height that helped balance out a long shirt.
A smart move for a shoe designer!
And we're betting she'll continue wearing it for years to come.
Sometimes, you just have to play the role of a fool to fool the fool who thinks they are fooling you.
