On The Cuff

On The Cuff

Suddenly everyone is embracing cuffing your jeans!

I have always been a notorious jean cuffer. I am 5'5" tall and may of my pairs of jeans are too long unless I am wearing heels. I also love the way jeans look when they are cuffed. It is part of my personal style. Rachel Bilson (far right) looks awesome in her cuffed jeans and sexy footwear.

Some people think that cuffing your jeans is a fashion crime and others think that jeans look best when cuffed especially when they allow you to show off awesome foot wear.

I hate it when, so called, fashion experts make blanket statements like, "curvy girls shouldn't wear skinny jeans" or "never ever cuff your jeans". Who are they to tell you what to do? They act as though their fashion preferences should rule your life. Those same "experts" are now describing the best way to cuff your boyfriend jeans.

Cuffing Tips
After you cuff your jeans, check whether or not you like the way they look in the mirror. Next, test whether or not the cuff will stay in place by walking around before leaving the house. If they do, then you are good to go. If not, try these easy tips:

1. Beat the cuffs into submission by ironing them flat.

2. Use double sided tape to create a real sticky situation.

3. Sew the cuffs in place at the side seams of your jeans if you don't mind a more permanent solution.

Caution: All three of these tips can cause a permanent crease and slight discoloration to form at the cuff site.
