6 Ways To Cuff Your Jeans

Cuffing jeans is a common fashion trick. Why? Because it’s a way to change up your style and draw attention to your shoe game. I mean, why buy the coolest shoes online if you’re not going to show them off, right?

Anyway, this blog post will show you how to take your style game to a whole new level with six ways to cuff your jeans. But first things first, in order to master the art of cuffing jeans, you need to find the perfect pair. In the tutorial images below we feature Levi’s 511 jeans, and we’ve found that the following cuffing styles work best with a slimmer leg opening (think something between a skinny and a boot cut).

Okay, let’s get started!

The Single Roll
