One of my favorite trends this season is the return of flared jeans! I’m glad to see them back in fashion favor and available in a variety of washes, styles, and degrees-of-flare-i-ness.
- Look for a high waistline. An emphasized waist will balance out the volume toward the bottom of your legs.
- Make sure they’re long enough. When it comes to flared jeans, I think it’s always better to buy long – if they shrink, you’ll be able to wear them with flats or tennis shoes, and if they don’t, you can rock them with a chunky heeled clog or boot. Too-short flares are unflattering and don’t really look good with any shoe.
Look #1: Boho-Glam
Look #2: Parisian-Chic
Look #3: Sporty
This look also channels a bit of the 70s vibe – with light-wash flares, a raglan baseball tee, letterman-style sweater, and Adidas, you’ve got a fresh athletic outfit.
Look #4: Clean & Polished
For this final look, I wanted to show a more formal approach. By pairing a button down top and cropped sweater with a dark-wash flare, this look is more business-appropriate. For a little fun and even more height, I also included a chunky-heeled boot.
Will you be wearing flared jeans this season? If so, what’s your favorite way to style them?
