Cuff your Jeans like a Pro

Here are the formulas behind the season’s must-try looks: the traditional skinny cuff, the undone half cuff, and the polished thick cuff. With these style tips you’re sure to become a cuffing pro!

cuffjeans-thickA thick cuff requires a wider-leg pair of jeans that are a little loose.

Steps: 1. Fold the jeans to create a one-inch cuff. 2. Fold again so that the cuff is about two inches thick. 3. Smooth out the cuff to create a polished look.

Styling Tip: Make this your weekend go-to with a relaxed tee and ankle-strap flats.

cuffjeans-skinnyThe skinny cuff works best on fitted silhouettes, as it creates the appearance of a long, lean line.

Steps: 1. Fold the bottom of the jeans to create a half-inch cuff. 2. Fold a second time, adding an extra half-inch to the cuff. It should be nice and tight and hit at or just above the ankle.

Styling Tip: Elongate your legs further by adding a nude wedge or low-cut heel.

Steps: 1. To achieve an accordion-like look, start by making a single four-inch cuff. 2. Bunch the bottom of the cuff to create dimension and texture. 3. Finish by folding the top hem downwards.

Styling Tip: Give your jeans the downtown treatment by adding a worn-in jacket and statement stilettos.

Shoes: ALDO RISE x Preen’s Latest Collaboration

shoes

Few can dream about purchasing a pair of shoes straight off the runway, but thanks to their latest collaboration with ALDO RISE, you can snag Preen’s gorgeous heels—at accessible prices—from their S/S 13 collection. Indeed, the shoes offer a fashion-forward contrast—edgy hardware and sleek silhouettes with luxe textures and pops of color—that’s ideal for all your spring ensembles. Here are a few favorites from the collection and styling tips from the designers themselves.

1. Musilova Heels ($155) in Ice
These pointy-toe pumps in versatile white are just as suitable for the office (with a printed pencil skirt and blazer) as they are for your next GNO (with cropped skinnies and a silky tank).

2. Buito Sandals ($155)
A touch of snakeskin gives these ankle-strap heels a little extra pizzazz. “The open-toe is super cool with a loose tailored suit, or even a silk t-shirt and pants,” Thornton says.

3. Pravda Pumps ($155) in Navy
These square-heeled pumps are definite scene-stealers. “The closed-toe style is great with a slit skirt and blouse”.
