Roll Those Sleeves Up, the Right Way: A Step-By-Step Guide

Rolling Sleeve Cuffs, the Right Way

The best part about spring? The way warmer temps create decidedly more casual office attire. Case in point: rolling up the cuffs on your dressy button-downs. It’s like the cool, nonchalant way of saying, “There’s work to be done here.” But did you know there’s a proper way to execute this laid-back look? Check out the steps below to achieve an effortless sleeve roll, then go ahead and get your hands dirty.

  1. Flip your cuff back and pull it up to just above your elbow.
  2. Evenly roll the nearby inside-out shirting until it covers half the cuff, keeping the sleeve snugly in place.
  3. Make sure to leave the edge of the cuff out so that any contrasting patterns or colors peek through.
