Have you ever wondered about the secret to pulling off a simple outfit of jeans and a button-down top? It all comes down to one styling trick that fashion girls have mastered: the sleeve roll. Yes, rolling the sleeves of a button-down top is an insider way to make the everyday basic look chic and elevated. Not only does it give any outfit a relaxed, cool-girl feel, but it also puts the emphasis on any jewelry on your wrists or accessories you’re carrying. Ahead, we’re breaking down how to roll sleeves in three easy steps.
Step 1: Unfasten any buttons on the sleeve cuffs.
Step 2: Fold your sleeves in half, and pull the cuff to the upper arm.
Step 3: Roll the sleeve fold again, stopping right below the cuff. Let the cuff stick out from under the fold.
