RECENTLY in my Wardrobe Workout Workshop I was asked about whether or not cuffing your jeans was the thing to do and how to do it, so here is my take on this with a few ideas for you;Blog - to cuff or not to cuff

Lately, everywhere you will see celebrities and fashion houses really pumping the ‘cuffed’ jeans. Right now it certainly IS the trend. While I am a big fan of cuffing, there are also times when I won’t run with it.

 

I DO Cuff when:
  • The weather is warm to mild
  • To dress up or dress down
  • To rock a skinny or straight leg jean
  • To rock a fab pair of heels or an awesome pair of booties
  • Whenever I feel like it
I DON’T Cuff when:
  • The weather is cold
  • To dress up or dress down
  • To rock a skinny or straight leg jean
  • to rock a fab pair of heels or an awesome pair of booties
  • Whenever I feel like it
Cuffing has been around since Methuselah was a child and has come and gone, like all other trends and will stay around in the background and become a firm trend again down the track ‘The fashion cycle’.
Cuffing also shows off a skinny ankle, which lengthens a leg, depending on the shoe you are wearing.
As I mentioned above,whether I get my ‘cuff on’ will depend on the weather, especially as we come into cooler weather.  There is nothing worse that sporting frozen ankles and also seeing someone else with them. (Similarly a strappy heel in the middle of a big freeze is a pet hate of mine! Brrrrrr)
So although ‘cuffing’ IS currently a trend – if you don’t feel like it, then don’t do it!  We are at a stage in fashion that ‘anything goes’ but only as long as you are comfortable and confident to pull it off.
Are you currently rocking the ‘cuffed jeans’ trend?
