(Simple) Styling Tip: Cuff Your Jeans

April 30th, 2010

Cuff the jeans you have - or buy a pair of jeans that’s pre-cropped.

How do you make your jeans feel fresh in three seconds flat?  Cuff them.

Here’s how to get the look of cuffed jeans right:

(1) For best results, try a pair of straight leg jeans for cuffing.  Don’t try this with jeans with a flared hem.  Slightly skinny (but not skintight) jeans can also work, as can boyfriend-cut (read: relaxed fit) jeans.
(2) You can turn up the cuff or roll your jeans up to past your ankle - but don’t go further than mid-calf.
(3) What to wear with your cuffed jeans? Ballet flats or embellished sandals look fresh this season, as do wedge heels (especially for shorter women, as cuffing your jeans visually cuts your height).

    I haven’t cuffed my jeans in a while since the skinny jean look has taken over my wardrobe! I love the concept though and it’s perfect for a low-key summer night with a breezy tank.

    Oh this is perfect advice! I’m a shopaholic – just like in this video – http://www.itsasickness.com/lounge/elena-goode-obsessed-bargain-hunting. This will help me to curb my urge to shop by altering what I have. Although…love those American Eagles :) obsessed I tell you. obsessed!!
