Now that the weather’s getting a teensy bit warmer I’m ready to ditch my boots and socks, and start wearing more “spring” attire – you with me?
While cropped pants are an easy way to show off some ankle, a cuffed jean can give the same effect – with a little extra flair. I love a wide cuff with sneakers and flip-flops, and a pin roll when I’m wearing flats or a bit of a heel.
Here’s how to pin roll your jeans!
First, pick a jean with a straight leg – a wide leg gets too bulky once you start cuffing; toothpick and legging jeans are too tight to roll. So go with a straight leg or a very slight bootleg cut. For this post I’m using my very favorite jeans!
Start by smoothing the leg at the bottom, to remove any creases or dents.
Then, starting with the inside of one leg, pull inward (toward your other leg), grabbing the material so that it’s smooth and taut.
Now fold that piece of fabric inward, holding it in place. It should be as tight as possible, while still allowing you to roll it up.
Use your free hand to roll the jean up, keeping that fold in place.
Roll 2 more times.
You can loosen the cuff slightly so that it has a more relaxed look.
And there you go!
