Let's Hear it for the Boys

When it comes to men’s fashion, there are a few things that I will forever love, no matter the season. One of those things is a pair of cuffed jeans that expose patterned socks. To me, this look is so attractive because it shows a little personality and some bravery.  Cuffing pants can make you stand out amongst the millions of pairs of jeans that guys wear every day.

I spotted this Fashionisto walking through campus and instantly noticed his gray striped socks and those perfectly cuffed jeans. I love this look when paired with a unique shoe that you can really show off. Our Fashionisto wears an oxford style leather shoe in a bright camel color to contrast the light gray of his socks. Not only did he cuff his pants, but he also cuffed the sleeves of his shirt. Cuffing elements of your outfit is not necessarily some styling trick, it really is just a personal preference, but it’s one that should be considered. It is such an easy step that changes up your look.

Recreating this look is so simple since most men probably already have items that they can work with.  Have a plain T-shirt? Know where your favorite pair of jeans is? Now roll the sleeves and hem a couple of times and you’ll look just like our handsome Fashionisto.  Only a couple accessories were added to this look because that’s really all it needs. Grab your favorite sunglasses and your messenger bag and you’re ready for a full day of class.

Hint: If you think your jeans are too wide at the bottom to cuff, H&M and J.Crew sell great slim fit pants that cuff effortlessly. Although the cuff plays a defining role in this look, patterned socks can make even more of a statement.  My personal favorite sock brand for this is Stance. They have the most unique and colorful patterns that always turn heads.
