How to Cuff Your Jeans Like a Pro

Jeans are always my go-to item. They can be dressed up or down and are so comfortable!

Inspired by fashion trailblazers like Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, I’m here to show you the formulas behind the season’s must-try looks: the traditional skinny cuff, the undone half cuff (my fave!), and the polished thick cuff. Keep reading for all of my essential tips—you’re sure to become a pro by the end!

The Thick Cuff

A thick cuff requires a wider-leg pair of jeans that are a little loose.

Step One
Fold the jeans to create a one-inch cuff.

Step Two
Fold again so that the cuff is about two inches thick.

Step Three
Smooth out the cuff to create a polished look.


Styling Tip: Make this jean style your weekend go-to with a relaxed tee and ankle-strap flats.

The Skinny Cuff

The skinny cuff works best on fitted jean silhouettes, as it creates the appearance of a long, lean line.

Step One
Fold the bottom of the jeans to create a half-inch cuff.

Step Two
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

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

Step One
To achieve an accordion-like look, start by making a single four-inch cuff.

Step Two
Bunch the bottom of the cuff to create dimension and texture.

Step Three
Finish by folding the top hem downwards.

Styling Tip: Give your jeans the downtown treatment by adding a worn-in leather jacket and statement stilettos.

This is my favorite way to wear my jeans cuffed!
