roll me one
Maya Villiger for Turned Out
For as long as I can remember, I have been rolling up my shirt sleeves. I can’t do a proper cuffs-fastened-at-the-wrist look, it does something to the proportions of my body that makes me look ungainly. I look like I was forced to dress up.
In any case, I’ve become very fond of the rolled sleeve. It suits my casual style, it makes me look like I mean business (like brunch, you know, deadly stuff), it’s also quite convenient not to worry about getting food on it. I push up my sleeves when I'm wearing a sweater too. Naturally, I really heart this post on Turned Out embracing the joys of a rolled sleeve.
I like it best with the cuff just below my elbow so that I can comfortably bend my arms, but the just above-wrist roll is also quite nice - a more demure, elegant look.
With me, the neat, chic, pulled-together look just isn’t meant to be.
