It’s all about the statement cuff. No, I’m not talking about the kind of cuff you wear on your wrist, (although, that t00 is a fantastic trend to try this year… I’ve been scouring the ‘net for one myself). Anyway… back to the point. We all know cuffing your jeans is par for the course, but I’ve been noticing a new kind of cuff.
The Statement Cuff.
What is this “statement?” Well, it’s just the “bigger, the better.” How much cuff can your jeans handle? I guess it depends on how long the jean is, or how short your leg is. And in my case, more often than not…. both. Karen Blanchard, from Where Did U Get That? was spotted at NYFW with these enormous cuffs in her straight leg jeans. It’s a thing I’ve not been able to get out of my head.
Apparently, I’m not the only one… the statement cuff has been showing up in lookbooks around:
The boyfriend jean 2.0, with a statement cuff is cutting edge, especially with a frayed hem.

Haven’t mastered the boyfriend jean? Try out a statement cuff with your skinny jeans!
J Crew, Summer 2014
Although, this one is a more subtle statement, it’s still a pretty big cuff.
Now, cuff it up!
(And have a great weekend!)
