Finding the perfect pair of jeans is an endless struggle. If they fit you around the waist, they’re too baggy in the thighs. If they fit your butt perfectly, you could fit another person in your gaping waistline. The struggle is too real. But no matter how your jeans fit or don’t fit, one fashion rule is always applicable: jeans that are too long for you are a no-no. Swimming in extra fabric that’s all bunch up around you’re ankles? That look has never been flattering on anyone.
If you have a pair of jeans that you love that are just a little too long, don’t get rid of them! You can easily take them to get tailored and perfectly fit your height.
Need a quick, stylish fix instead? Well, the go-to method is cuffing your jeans. Cuffed jeans are a trendy look that not only keep your pants out from under your feet, but can actually elevate your whole outfit.
While you can go for the basic rolled cuff (which you’ll see below), cuffing your pants is actually something you can have a lot of fun with! There is more than one way to cuff your jeans and to prove it, we’re bringing you five fabulous ways from fashion blogger Lindsay Albanese. She is going to show us five fresh looks, including her favorite and least favorite way to cuff jeans.
The Back Flip
What a perfect look for a quick, casual outing, like running errands or getting brunch with the girls.
The Perfectly Imperfect
Start with the Back Flip, and roll the cuff up once to create the Half-Tuck. Instead of rolling up again, all you have to do is bunch up the sides of the cuff, creating that “totally accidental” look that we’re all going for.
The Egg Roll
This cuff depends a lot of height, body shape, and preference; you can roll your jeans to any point that you find comfortable and flattering.
This is basically just your average cuff. Roll the bottom of your jeans up once, making sure the cuff is even all the way around your ankle, then fold it up a second time so equal parts have been cuffed. If you love a sophisticated, preppy look, then this is the cuff for you!
