You’re running out to pick up some groceries, or you’ve got a doctor’s appointment, and you don’t want to wander in wearing yoga pants. What do you throw on that’s casual, unfussy but looks modern and stylish? This season flared jeans are popular.
While it may feel like the 70’s all over again, take a closer look, and you’re going to be excited. You can look fab in flared jeans. Here are three ways to style flared jeans.
1. Classic – Flared Jeans and a Peacoat
If you think flare jeans mean having to pair them with a billowing top à la early Stevie Nicks, know that a tailored pea coat is perfectly chic and flattering too.
2. Artistic – Flared Jeans and a Poncho
Back in the day, it was all about the stonewashed look. This time around, we see flares in rich shades of indigo, free of bleach and whiskering or other effects. Not only are these darker blues more slimming, but they look more polished too. For an artsy look try wearing your flares with a beautiful, knit poncho.
3. Western – Flared Jeans with a Cowboy Elements
Cropped, flared jeans have been trending lately, however they run the risk of making your legs look shorter. The easy fix is to wear a heel. It doesn’t have to be a skyscraping stiletto you can hardly walk in; this chunky cowboy bootie will do just fine.
There are so many fun looks you can create with cropped flares. This outfit takes inspiration from fall’s western theme. A fab fringe cowboy jacket goes hand in hand with the cowboy booties and prairie floral shirt.
