It’s spring! The only issue is that it’s still not warm. So wearing all the light and flirty clothes of the season isn’t weather appropriate. And that’s why I’m sharing how to cuff jeans, along with two other style hacks that help your outfit match the spring vibe.
Watch the video for a style tutorial on how to cuff jeans along with other style hacks to lighten up your look.

Wondering how to cuff jeans? The first thing, is you need to make sure your pants aren’t too long. Otherwise they’ll bunch up and not create a clean line for your cuff. I like to cut my pants when I know I’ll cuff them. This way they’re not too bulky.
Start by rolling the pants up, more than you think. You’ll turn them up a few inches. Then fold over the top part so now the roll is cut in half. The last step is to bring the bottom fold up to meet the top. (In the video I demonstrate how to best cuff jeans.)
Here are 2 more style hacks to lighten up your look.
Another way to lighten up your look is to tie it up. This is a look I do a lot when I’m working out (it keeps the shirt out of the way), but also when I’m wearing a baggy, or shapeless blouse.
It’s pretty straight forward. Just tie the top in a knot. If it’s not a button down (which is perfect for knot tying!), tie it to the side for added interest. Or try it in the back. The important thing is that you want the bottom of your blouse to be smooth especially if you have details like I do as shown in the video tutorial.
The other way to tie your top is to use a ponytail holder. You’ll just pull the fabric of the top like you’re making a little ponytail. Once it’s tied up, you may have extra fabric hanging out. I always tuck in that extra fabric to my pants for a smooth finish.
NYC always has a lot of black going on wardrobe wise, but in the winter it’s even more. If you want to lighten up your look then adding color will do the trick. You don’t have to go SO bold in head to toe red (unless that’s YOU!), but by introducing even a little bit of color, you’ll feel more spring ready.
If you want to match your outfit with the warm weather vibe, but it’s still cold outside then learn how to cuff jeans, tie up your top and wear more color. These will help you lighten your look and add a bit more spring into your outfit.
