Ahead of her Best Director win for The Beguiled at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Sofia Coppola was spotted out and about sporting a pair of Dickies, tapping into a burgeoning trend: the skater jean.

Seen at Stella McCartney Spring 2017 and available locally thanks to the likes of Wynn Hamlyn, this is a look sure to stir fear for lovers of skinny jeans.

But if you’re game to give it a try, here’s what you’ll need:

Sharp Shooter
No 90s’ boy bands here: a smart white shirt with rolled sleeves adds grown-up balance.

Easy Does It
Keep accessories simple — a classic straw Panama hat, gold watch and cat-eye frames do the trick.

Skater Boy
The key to pulling off these jeans is subtly framing the rest of your outfit around them with elegant basics.

Slide On By
Keep it casual with Birkenstock sandals. This is an outfit best worn on weekends.
