About CuffedUp

At CuffedUp, we care about two things:

  1. Making it easier for you to get ready and feel confident in your clothes
  2. Building a better, more sustainable world of fashion for the future

We’ve been featured by Veronica Beard, Real Simple, RewardStyle, Good Morning Texas, & more. We’ve done collaborations with brands including J. Crew & Theory. We’re the youngest startup ever to work with the Harmon Brothers, the digital marketing masterminds behind Squatty Potty, Poo-Pourri, & Purple Mattress. 


Hourly rates will be based on experience (graduate vs undergraduate). Ranges vary between $8.50-$13/hr. If you have an extensive commute to meet with us, we will cover a gas card for you.

If we like what we see, we’ll set up a call and send instructions for a small test project (takes less than 1 hr!) to make sure your skills are the right fit.
