Purple Jeans and the Key to Happiness

How to Wear Purple Jeans with Rolled Cuffs

During my styling event a few weeks ago at Stella Says Go, I was doing a little demonstration about how to change up your basic outfits with different accessories. I made three different looks with each outfit, and one look was a casual day look, with jeans, a black t-shirt, and flat sandals. I rolled the cuffs of the jeans to change up the look, and an audience member asked me, “Can you really cuff your jeans like that? I heard it was dorky!” And my resounding answer was “Yes! You can do whatever you want!” I find cuffing my jeans a nice way to change the feel of the outfit. A loose cuff gives the outfit a bit of a fun, preppy feel, and definitely shows off the shoes in a cute way. That doesn’t seem dorky at all to me! What do you guys think?

Doing a little something different with some straight-legged jeans can totally change the whole outfit, and give you a jumping-off point for outfit inspiration! I think these purple jeans would look cute cuffed with just a basic t-shirt or white button-down and Chuck Taylors, too. More options=money saved=happiness!

    You shoulda been all, “I look awesome, don’t I? Of course you can cuff your jeans.” But really though, I’ve increasingly felt that while I’ve developed a couple loose “rules” or maybe more styling tricks that I like to employ, there really aren’t any hard an fast rules that I stick by (and nor should anyone else!)

  4. Yes, love the cuff — makes it feel more casual. Diggin’ the purple!

  5. Purple jaeans are unbelievably awesome! I agree completely- cuffing your pants is brilliant. It’s those kind of small touches that changes clothes into an outfit :)

  7. I think you already rocked my world by wearing skinny purple jeans – colored jeans still blow my mind, haha! You look fantastic as always!

    LOVE the purple jeans. You would be amazed at how hard it is to find colored jeans in Tennessee. I can’t find them even at thrift stores. And I really want a pair of red or orange ones. And I love how you rolled them It adds the perfect finishing touch. :)

  9. You are working those jeans!!
