It seems inexplicable how French women manage to take the most pedestrian of fabrics—denim—and spin it into something so sophisticated. There’s definitely an element of je ne sais quoi to it all but the key is to keep it classic, with minimal accessories. The best part to a classic look is it transcends all sizes and shapes, so these tips work whether you’re an 8, 14 or 24.

Cropped Flares


When it comes to working with both a cropped fit and flared silhouette, opt for black instead of blue and work it like a dress pant. That said, there’s no need to get too fancy with stilettos: a mid-heel is just right for making legs look longer and slimmer at the same time.

Black Skinnies


Treat a cropped skinny jean like you would a cigarette pant. An ankle crop looks particularly elegant with dress flats—bonus points if they have ankle straps and a pointed toe—and a top that has some nuance to it (this applies to anything from sweaters to silky blouses).

High-Waisted Flares

To work the high-waisted cut to your advantage, go for a white button-down shirt tucked in (this move helps define the waist and makes legs look miles long), with the sleeves rolled up to the elbow. Go for a platform shoe to balance the volume of a wide-leg silhouette.

Distressed Blue Jeans

Treated denim can easily veer into grungy territory if you’re not careful—to avoid looking sloppy, keep the rest of the pieces polished and tailored. A clingy t-shirt, sharply tailored jacket, and simple court shoes—ideally, all in black—get the job done.

    I bought a few items for my sister's birthday. The service was excellent (I have no idea about women's clothes!) and the delivery was very quick. My sister was very happy. I highly recommend for everyone looking for great quality clothes and great service!

    Bought a couple of fabulous shirts from here. While it took a few days to get to me in NZ it was so worth it. Customer service was awesome and could not have been more helpful. Highly recommend!

    I would like to thank the team at SISU & FINN for a great experience. I needed to buy something for my mother’s birthday, and they helped me select the perfect item. To ensure it reached her on time, it was sent directly to her, and Philippa included a birthday card! My mother was so happy, and the personalised touch was really appreciated. Thank you to Philippa and her team.
