For those of you who begrudgingly adopted the skinny jean movement, you will be pleased to hear that flares are making a triumphant come back. That’s right, ladies, flared jeans are back.
I’ll admit it; I had fully embraced skinny jeans and never really considered breaking out my jeans from the past. All reservations aside, I purchased a pair of Current Elliot flared jeans and my denim life was forever changed. Flares are stylish, flattering, and with the right shoes can make you look taller and slimmer.
Wondering how to rock these jeans? I’ve got a few ideas for you …
Keep the Top Half Current
Because flares aren’t completely mainstream yet, you have to be extra careful with the styling. If you don’t play your cards right your look might come off dates. I love the ideas of pairing your flares with a white tee and a tough moto jacket.
When it comes to flares, the longer the better if you ask me. Take this opportunity to break out your tallest wedges – this will give the illusion that you are way taller than you actually are. Don’t into super-sizing your height? Go for a pair of pointy toe pumps instead, these will make you look slimmer.
Go Full On Retro
There is a difference between dated and retro – dated is bad and retro is good. Pull a Rachel Zoe and rock a full-on 70s inspired boho look. Flared jeans are the perfect piece to pull a look of this kind together. For more styling ideas take a look at this link.
