But there are cuffs, and then there are stylish cuffs! Check out these 5 stylista’s whose looks will inspire you to transform your jeans with nothing but a stylish cuff. 1. Supersized Skinny Cuffs I am obsessed with 5inchandup‘s style, and the way she’s supersized her cuffs in this outfit is amazing! I can’t wait to try this look! I have a pair of super long MissMe skinny jeans that I am terrified to shorten! I have yet to find someone who knows how to tailor jeans correctly, so I would rather just leave them long. Thanks to this look I am inspired to try this trend, and I quite honestly LOVE how it gives the jeans a little more detail! Just cuff your jeans, with one single fold, making sure that the end of the jeans are not too short. You want them to sit just right; skimming your ankle, all the way down, but not past your shoes.

Louboutin Nails

Louboutin Nails

My obsession with Christian Louboutin doesn’t end at the feet! I love, and have always wanted to try out the infamous “Louboutin Mani” made famous, probably by Adele.
