Ask Shopbop: 4 Ways to Cuff Your Jeans

What are some different ways to cuff your jeans? —Shanley

Cuffing your jeans is one of the easiest ways to transition from winter to spring. Here are four techniques to keep your look interesting.

THE MESSY BOYFRIEND
Best for: Slouchy and distressed boyfriend jeans.
How to do it: Create a small roll at the back, then begin rolling and catch the front up to the back. Keep the cuff thin and uneven for a casual, easy look.
Wear with: Unstructured, beat-up ankle boots and sporty booties.

THE CALF CUFF
Best for: Super skinny jeans.
How to do it: Fold the bottom hem up 5 to 7 inches, creating a large single cuff. Pull the bottom of the cuff to straighten wrinkles and even out both legs. The more ankle left exposed, the sexier the look.
Wear with: Tough, ankle-strap heels and playful peep-toe pumps.

THE EASY INCH
Best for: Printed skinny jeans.
How to do it: Make a neat 1-inch fold and roll it once creating a perfect cuff. The crisp cuff balances the bold, flirty print.
Wear with: Textured, heeled booties and strappy sandals.

THE DOUBLE BACK
Best for: Stiletto jeans.
How to do it: Fold the bottom hem up a few inches. Then, fold the hem back over the original cuff leaving some fabric exposed. A perfect edge is not necessary for this preppy warm-weather look.
Wear with: Embellished, flat espadrilles and classic oxfords.
