Denim Trend: Graphic Cuff Jeans

by Hayley on October 28, 2010

People have been cuffing and rolling their jeans a ton lately, so it was only a matter of time before designers made that even cooler with graphics and patterns on the cuffs. This trend started about the beginning of summer, but we’re still seeing it pop up.

What’s great about this trend is that all body types can wear it, and it’s playful and fun, as fashion should be. It’s also versatile; since the patterns are on the inside of the jeans, unrolling them turns it back into a nice basic pair of jeans that you can wear with whatever you want.

My Gap jeans, cuffed to show birds!

I have a pair of Gap Real Straights with Bird Graphic Cuffs (they were the only pair in the store – and on clearance!) and I really like them. I’m short, so cuffing them only benefits me because it shows off the cute bird pattern. Plus, the pattern goes up about 10” from the hem on the inside of the jeans, so cuffing them more than once will still show the birdies.

This particular pair I have is sold out pretty much everywhere (cuteness goes quick!) but it seems like it would be very easy to DIY something like this. The Madewell pair features polka dots, which wouldn’t be hard to replicate if this look is something that interests you. Speaking of, does anyone know if they sell the Madewell pair in stores yet?

What do you think about this trend? Would you (or do you already) wear it?

Love this idea. It makes trips to the dollar bin at the fabric store that much more worth it.
