Hi, I’m Heather Klar. “How to Double Cuff Jeans.” You’re going to want to maybe double cuff jeans if you’re perhaps on the vertically challenged side, of if you’re looking to spice up your jean wardrobe with something a little more interesting. Double cuffing your jeans has both a stylish as well as a functional aspect in that it can look quite cool depending on the kind of jeans, as well as the type of footwear you’re wearing. But also, if you’re on the perhaps vertically challenged or shorter side, double cuffing your jeans might be a quick way to have them fitting right. Or, perhaps if you’ve gotten them on sale and scored the deal, you might want to cuff them up. So, I have an example here. So, here’s our lovely jeans. This is the post-cuff. Usually, my rule of thumb is about an inch. You want to make sure you’re double-cuffing them on the outside of the jeans. If you do it underneath, it won’t stay, and it also doesn’t look very nice. So, here is our raw jean hem. You just want to roll it up about an inch on each side. You can play with these proportions as well. And then, just double it up. If you want it to stay and you like the look of it, if you wanted, you could safety pin it on the inside, or give it a quick stitch. But, for the most part they’ll stay put. And then, I’m wearing two different types of shoes, which I think go great with double cuff jeans.
