WHAT ARE THE THREE DIFFERENT WAYS TO CUFF YOUR PANT LEGS?
Folded pant legs has once again become an ongoing trend. Whether it’s to show off your shoes or to make your ensemble a tad more stylish, there are actually different types of ways to cuff your pant legs, with each resulting in a different look.
1. the double roll: Perhaps the easiest and the most basic of them all is the double roll, which is the most versatile. Simply take the edge of your pants and fold about five centimeters from the bottom. How many rolls you do will depend on your own preference. As a rule of thumb, it’s perfect when the cuff hits the top of your ankle bone. do avoid rolling them too many times, as it will make the bottom of your pant leg look chunky.
2. the skinny roll: This one works best with tight-fitting pants. It does not, however, go well with chunky boots and basketball shoes. See that line at the bottom of your pants? Well, that’s pretty much the length you want to cuff for the skinny roll.
3. the pin roll: If you feel that the bottom part of your pants is too loose, just pull the loose fabric with your thumb and forefinger and pinch the fabric against your ankle until it feels slightly snug. Then fold the fabric vertically towards the heel—not to the front because then the fold will show—before you start rolling the cuff upwards. Make sure that each roll is at least three centimeters wide and that you fold it at least twice, to keep it well-proportioned.
4. the single roll: Ideal for denim jeans, canvas pants and work boots, this roll is quite practical. The only rule of thumb is that it should be at least ten centimeters long; any less and it will look awkward.
