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!
A 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.
The 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.
The half cuff is best suited for slouchier styles like the boyfriend jean.
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.
