I mentioned this in my last post, but there’s a menswear trend out there right now that I’m a big fan of. It’s a small thing, but significant enough to at least call out.
And that trend is: messily rolling up your sleeves or pant cuffs. Or probably more accurately, strategically rolling up your sleeves or pant cuffs in a way that it looks unintentional. This can apply to so many different clothing pieces as well- sweaters, jackets, chinos, jeans, etc.
Maybe it’s because I’m not as tall, so rolling up my sweater cuffs or pants is something I would do anyway. Maybe it’s because it looks kind of “I don’t care-ish,” which I’m a fan of. Either way, I think the trend is fun and easy to implement, and can possibly help make you look a bit more stylish.
To illustrate, here are some pictures from fashion brands/magazines across the web.
Not bad huh?
This little technique can help you look a bit more relaxed and casual. It also has the added benefit of exposing your ankles and wrists, which is helpful if you wear a watch (and/or bracelet), or want to show off some of that ankle. It’s something I’ve been doing a lot more of recently, and would encourage you to as well.
