Style Tweaks: Rolled-up Pants

Monday, May 7, 2012
A while ago someone gave me a great advice that totally helped me find my personal style: it’s not about how much you spend on the item, it’s more about how you make it yours. I’m the type of person who has to feel 100% comfy in the clothes I wear, otherwise I feel utterly miserable all day long. (You?) So, my thing is to keep it simple but add little twists here and there. One of them is the rolled up pants. I roll them up all the time! There is something rather adorable about showing your ankles and I love the relaxed feel of the look. The best part - they go with any type of shoes, from flats, sandals, loafers, wedges to even heels.

Lovelies, what's your little style tweak? Do you roll up your pants too? Are you a fan of the look or not so much? xo

P.S: Tomboy style and the snazzy shirt factor!

I roll up my jeans all the time too! It just adds a little bit of flare and it's perfect!

Oh I'm loving the rolled up pants these days too. I am rocking some myself. Even on men they look so cool.

I love the look but CANNOT wear it because it makes my legs look so short and stubby. But I do adore it. My little tweak is rolling up my sleeves. It started because all the sleeves on my jackets and sweaters were too long but now I just do it for fun.

Adore the rolled pant!!
I always roll my pants it started in the 80s out of my pants were always too short because i was so tall even as a kid. So i would cuff my pants instead of high waters much cuter look. I have been cuff and rolling ever since
I love a good messy cuff with comfy shirt and messy bun hair
I so agree i must be comfy in my clothes otherwise its a bad day

I don't know how many times I roll up my jeans just to roll them back down before leaving. What am I afraid of???? You have given me inspiration.

Actually I always roll them down cuz I think my cuff is too thick. How thick is too thick?

Diana Mieczan said...

Tiffany, rolled up sleeves are awesome too!!! (I wear them as well)

Diana Mieczan said...

Amy, what a great story and YES, messy cuff all the way:) Btw: I adore the combo of shirt, bun and pants!

Rolled up trousers have been around since I was 15.

Jess said...

I'm so glad this look is still in style... I am short so I have to roll up my pants anyways! But plus, it just looks super cute!

Liesl said...

Just last week I was trying out the rolling or cuffing of my jeans to make them a little more capri and summer-like...super cute! :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Alexa, those pants are SO cute!!! Such a great shade of red, isn't it? (and looks so cute paired up with the blue shirt).

Diana Mieczan said...

Bella, that is so sweet! You should totally go for it. Btw: I would say, roll up as much as you feel comfortable with. There is no rule to it.

Ana Degenaar said...

I completely agree, I love the look of the rolled up pants, it's unique and rather playful in stylish way!

Oh I totally roll up my pants! Especially when I wear my moccasins. Hope you're having a great start to your week. xx

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh really, Ana? Im totally going to ask Balazs about it now...giggle!

Diana Mieczan said...

I love what you said, Patricia: "it's unique and rather playful in stylish way!" - spot on!!!

Tiffany said...

I almost always roll up my pants when I'm wearing skinnies, because I like to see a little ankle, so it doesn't look so toothpick-y!

Lena P Cox said...

There is something rather adorable about you too. Riding the bike is even safer, lol
