Carine Roitfiled, the former French Vogue Editor in Chief and now Editor in Chief of CR Fashion Book magazine, is a woman of style we admire. Carine has paved the way for the classic yet “sexy, slightly undone” attitude that the French women are so well known for – for example, she’ll wear a collared shirt but unbuttoned to add a little bit of spiciness. Although, you won’t see her in much color, she is a lover of furs, black leather and romantic red carpet gowns (as are we). Here are some of our favorite Carine looks.
We loved this recent look from the always comfortable Editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt (whose French Vogue is covered this month by Dutch model Lara Stone). Emmanuelle has transformed her skinny jeans into cropped jeans simply by rolling them up a few inches. It’s easy to forget little tricks like these that will get you more mileage out of your denim, add a relaxed feel to your summer look, and even draw some attention to the new shoes you just bought. About the roll – try not to be too clean about it, a haphazard roll is more laid back than an even fold. It is summer after all. This one is not just for the ladies, either, we’ve seen a lot of men adding a cuff to their jeans, too.
Tip: We can take another style cue from Emmanuelle here by looking at her accessories. What accessory you ask? That would be her confidence, of course.

Emmanuelle Alt, recently appointed Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue, is a lesser known Anna Wintour – she hasn’t had a full length documentary made about her or been played by Meryl Streep, but she is every bit the style goddess. She can wear thigh-high boots with skinny jeans, a white tee, and leather jacket and it looks not one bit trashy. It’s nothing but chic and gorgeous and effortless. She looks equally amazing in wider leg flares, the ‘latest’ trend in denim. She is one woman we would love to see in HABITUAL. Emmanuelle, if you ever read this, please call us! We’d love to fit you.
