2 Chic Ways to Style Flare Jeans

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 2 ways to style flared jeans.

1. 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.

2. 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.

  1. I love these looks; being a pear shape, jeans or pants with a boot cut or flare is my savior, and teamed with boots in the winter or a wedge or similar in the summer, I can, as you say, create a much longer leg and a slimmer overall look. My problem is that I don’talwayswants to have to wear high heels on my nonwork days, but I do like to look smart. Summer is sorted as I can wear crop pants and a much smaller heel, but winter is always a problem. What casual but bright winter pants can pear shapes wear that don’t need high heels to look good? Do you have any suggestions for me, Deborah? Much appreciated, thank you :)

  2. Nope nope, nope. If you can remember it from the first time round, you don’t want to be wearing it next time! Which is a shame cos this would work much better for my huge calves than skinnies/leggings/what have you. :-/. I love that Donna Karan cardie and the top, though!

    1. Hi, I have heard what you are saying before, but the truth is if you tell yourself you can’t wear a trend you wore back, you would have nothing to wear. Trends get recycled and constantly change slightly, making them modern and updated. I think flared jeans in a dark wash can look fabulous on many women 40+. It’s all in the way you style them. Cheers, Deborah

    2. Agreed! Why doesn’t anyone remember that the 70s has been called “the decade of bad taste” for the last 40 years?! Some of those outfits would be adorable if they weren’t paired with those silly pants. :-)

    3. From what I’ve read online, there is a vast difference in what can be called a “flare”- everything from more of a bootcut to more of a bell bottom (only thinner in the thigh).
      Any rules of thumb here or personal preference based on your build, rest of the outfit, etc.?
      Thanks so much.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
