Attention To Detail : Cuffs

Button Up - American Apparel
Braided Belt - Thrifted
Jeans - Cheap Monday
Socks - Happy Socks
I must say the "cuff/rolled up jean" is probably the fastest growing "trend" in style that I have seen in a good while. And for every one who reads my blog knows the cuff is a detail that I am very fond of. Even though rolling my jeans, khakis, or wool trousers is a trend. It is just become second nature to me just before I hit the town for the day.
There are actually a few different styles and techniques when it comes to rolling up your jeans, or maybe its just something that I just came up with in my mind over the years.These cuffs can be used in flexible manners, if your're going somewhere casual but not too urban maybe you would want your cuff to of coarse be a lot neater. Versus someone who is just enjoying a day out on the town.
But the cuffs don't just stop at the jeans. As well rolling up short sleeve t-shirts and button ups, has become a popular trend as of late. This style really originates back to the 50's when it was more functional, the motorcycle greasers would tend to roll their cigarette packs up into their sleeves. With any trend there must have been a functional use to it at one point and time.

Special thanks to SheDel over at the My Thrifted Closet for featuring me on her blog check it out.
