Top Pick Thursdays: The Tuck and Roll

My Darlings - how has your Thursday been?  It's been a whirlwind of a day and I am running a little behind.  Is anyone as excited for the weekend as I am??? Woot! Woot!

One of the things I love MOST about my weekends is being able to dress COMFORTABLY - to slip into my favorite pair of jeans and a soft tee...and pairing it with a blazer and heels if I feel like "dressing" it up. I LOVE anything with DENIM and practically live in them whenever possible.

Lately, I've been LOVING my skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans.  Unfortunately, sometimes I find a GREAT pair of jeans that aren't quite long enough for me. So, the quick fix - roll it up! As for the tops, I love doing the half tuck for tops that are a little too long or big. LOVING these casual outfits!

What about you? Do you TUCK and ROLL?

"Tuck & Roll" is way better than "Stop, Drop & Roll". ;)

I tuck & roll whenever I can...I dig it!

Well, up until today I thought that was what you did in the case of a fire. But I say adorable either way ;)

Nikki - that's stop, drop, and roll. But I think this look would benefit you also...your hotness :)

I have a heck of a time finding boyfriend cut jeans that fit me right {the perfect cut/style for the tuck and roll look :)} but that doesn't stop me from living in my denim whenever I get the chance! :)

I always tuck an roll I think it definitely gives a softer look to denim especially for a casual look!
However mine never seem to look as good as they do in your pics!

Great post.

I love these looks. I'm short, so have a hard time finding even petite jeans that are short enough. I fold - have never rolled - but I think I may start. I teach high school and live in my jeans, although I try to dress them up so it's more professional. Good post

I am a bit of a tucker and roller too! I think it makes skinny jeans more flattering when you can see the top of your shoes? I actually used to make fun of my guy for doing this - I called him Tom Sawyer! (He has yet to notice that I have been doing this lately, I'll never hear the end of it when he does!)

Denise Pacurar said...

I do this as well! Especially when I buy a new pair of jeans that are too long and am too excited to wear them and don't want to wait for them to be altered! I will tuck and roll them until I'm ready for alterations :) Thanks for sharing this post!

The women in those photos look so chic. I'm also digging the boyfriend jeans look. I purchased a pair for $10 on clearance at Gap, but they're pleated and I think they look a little matronly. I need to find a way to make them work.

Great post!
