Get the Skinny on the Cigarette Jean by Mek Denim!

When thinking about Audrey Hepburn's beatnik dance scene in "Funny Face," you can't help but picture that signature cigarette pant that looked so amazing on Ms. Hepburn. The fashion industry is giving a nod to this timeless fashion icon by bringing back her super slim cut style this season in denim and pants.

How is the Cigarette Jean different from a regular skinny jean? It is typically an ankle length jean with a super slim leg opening. The Island Harbour by Mek Denim is our favorite version of this style with Mek Jean's signature "M" flap pockets. It's slightly dirty wash and ankle zippers definitely give it that biker chic look.

We love the cigarette jean with a slim cut motorcycle jacket and feminine blousy top. A belted boyfriend blazer and tee would also be a stylish addition to a cigarette jean! The ankle length leg works with flats, heels or boots so you can continue to reinvent this jean into dozens of looks.

Not many of us have that Audrey Hepburn body, but this look is still possible! If you have a curvier shape, just make sure that your top is a fuller cut and that it doesn't stop at the widest part of your body. Wearing a tight fitting top will only exaggerate your curves and draw attention to the widest area. Give it a try and experiment with different lengths and types of tops to find out what is the most slimming for you. Make it your own!
