Cuff your jeans and rock a killer look

Cuffed jeans have become a fashionable trend over the past few years. Rolling, folding and cuffing the jeans tends to create a look that is both minimal and stylish. The look works great with any outfit that you choose to wear, and can suit any occasion as well. And the best part is that you can wear it in so many ways. Accordingly, here are some stylish ways to cuff your jeans and carry off the look with elan.

Neat Cuff

As its name, the neat cuff is a neatly folded cuff on your jeans. It features a flat look with an even width, all the way around the jeans. All you need to do to get this look is to fold the bottom of the jean’s legs. Create two folds of one inch each and press an iron over the cuffs to flatten them. This will give you a clean, flat and polished cuff that will look great with straight and skinny leg jeans.

Oversized Cuff

The oversized cuff works well for large sized jeans. It features a thick messy fold that does justice to your silhouette and legs. The careless, Bohemian style can be easily achieved by simply scrunching up the jeans’ legs by 3 inches or more with a minimum of 2-2 folds. You can wear this look with causal tops and strap on some heels to create a casual chic look effortlessly.

Simply fold the jeans’ legs to three inches or so and press the cuff with an iron until it becomes flat and the crease becomes firm. Now flip the pressed crease inside out and press it again with an iron to secure it in place. This look can work well with both casual and formal tops.
