How To Wear: Flares

I have been a skinny jeans girl since probably early high school because I found they work best for my body type and style. I was hesitant when I saw that flares were coming back in style, but the second I saw these jeans I knew I had to have them. The front pockets are so unique and the trouser feel makes them a little nicer than typical jeans. The high waist is fun, but I can also wear a longer shirt or sweater to make it seem like a normal waist height. I have a few tips below on how to wear flares for those of you on the fence.

  • For a polished look, wear them with heels. No one wants dragging hems. If you want to wear flats, get a different pair of flares that are flats only.
  • High waisted jeans elongate your legs and like I mention above, you can always wear them with a longer top. If you don't want high waisted jeans, wear a top with a defined waist to streamline the look.
  • Buy flares in proportion to your figure. If you're petite, don't buy super wide leg jeans. If you're curvy, don't buy skinnier flares.
  • Make sure the fit is correct! Pockets are in the right place, they're not too long, and they're not too tight or loose.
