How to Wear Boyfriend Jeans, by Coco Chanel
ALRIGHT, technically they're khakis, but the point is the same. Follow Madame's lead and grab yourself a boyfriend like Serge Lifar, who happened to be one of the greatest dancers of all time.

[One caveat: unless you have Coco's legendary self-belief, you might want to draw the line at the turban.]
