How to Cuff Printed Jeans | Step by Step Guide

I love my printed jeans but I don’t love the way they look when they’re cuffed.  The underside of printed denim isn’t half as attractive as the printed side. So I workshopped how to cuff printed jeans.

That sounds really fancy pants.  Basically, it entailed me playing with my fancy pants until I figured how to cuff printed jeans so they looked pretty.

It’s all about the important things here at Kimba Likes.

How to Cuff Printed Jeans

Want to know how to cuff printed jeans?  It really couldn’t be easier.  Two simple steps, a mere moment of time and you’re good to go.

  1. Fold a section of the bottom of the printed jeans leg inside itself.  I found about 10 centimetres worked well, give or take.  Straighten it up so it is as even and smooth as possible.
  2. Fold the outer edge up a few centimetres to create the pretty printed jeans cuff.  As this section of fabric is already doubled over, it will create a nice solid edge and sit well.

Told you it was easy peasy lemon squeezy.  Works a treat and helps to make the world a prettier place.  Well, makes my ankles look prettier anyway.  Told you it was all about the important things here on Kimba Likes.

    It’s so simple!!! I feel like a fool … and it would be great for full on colour instead of washed out insides on non-print pants too. Genuis!!! Thanks so much for hosting and have a great week.ReplyCancel

      If only I could come up with genius ideas for useful inventions that I could patent and earn my fortune! At least the world’s ankles will be a prettier place. xReplyCancel

  • Daenel T - 19 March 2014 - 11.30 pm

    Genius! That weirdness is pretty much the reason I’ve stayed away from printed pants. Funny how I can be eclectic about everything else but OCD about that. LOLReplyCancel

  • Sarah - 19 March 2014 - 11.18 pm

    Okay, if I get some of these pants. Now I know where to go. If only dresses didn’t rule my wardrobe 😛 I love the print!

      I’m a total dress girl too. Amazed at how often I’ve worn pants these past few months though!ReplyCancel

  • Calimmity Jo - 19 March 2014 - 9.11 pm

    Clever lil cookie. Hmmm just gotta get this mumma junk in order then some printed jeans will be on the list. My friend was wearing a pair today, waaaaant. Soon! Jo ××ReplyCancel

    • Kim-Marie - 23 March 2014 - 5.30 pm

      check out the bargain stores and see if you can find some. I’m a big believer in dressing for the shape you are now. Investment dressing is all very well and good when it comes to cashmere and trench coats. Not so much for fun printed jeans!ReplyCancel

  • Kylie - 19 March 2014 - 6.52 pm

    Oh! Clever!ReplyCancel

    I always think of you as being quite tall for some reason, Ingrid! The ankle trick works so well.

    I’m very keen on the green Aztec print ones actually. And the C&M tiger print ones!ReplyCancel

  • Ingrid - 19 March 2014 - 9.24 am

    I’m all about the cuffed jeans, because I’m so short that I like to have a bit of ankle showing to create the illusion of longer legs.

    Love the jeans you picked this week, the prints are gorgeous xReplyCancel

    Great post Kimba – I’ve always been a let-the -bottom-of-the-pants-hang-over-the-heel-of-your-shoe-and-slowly-get-shredded kinda gal – but this IS easy peasy so I will endeavor to change my lazy-girl ways! XReplyCancel
