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!
