I never thought I would wear crop flare jeans until I found this cute pair from Veronica Beard.
The first time I saw crop flare jeans l really thought they were too weird for me. I was sure they were going look silly like I was wearing floods, or worse, make me look short, stumpy and heavy in the hips. But I decided to take the advice I always give to all of you and just try them on.
When I first glanced in the dressing room mirror, they did look goofy…kind of like sailor pants that shrunk. I stood there and stared at myself and thought, really? But once I added a cute top, some heels, and a bag, I started to feel casually chic and modern.
Here’s what the hemline looks like. They are a cropped bootcut style, and they have a small flare with a frayed release hem.
With kick flare jeans, you want to make your legs look long and lean, so I’ve styled them with nude heels. The heels give me a few extra inches, and the nude color blends in with my skin, creating a nice clean, continuous line that is very flattering and slimming. I love the way the crop flare hits so perfectly just above my ankle. It’s very sexy.
Yellow is my favorite color, and this year there is a lot of it, which is unusual, so I snapped up this cheery side tie top to go with my jeans.
My bag is from another shoot I did with Talbots. See it here with this cute coral fringe dress. It sold out fast, but I have linked something similar below.
I thought the jeans with their big square pockets, and the yellow tee with tie front and knot had a nautical vibe, so I added some blue rope bauble earrings.
Glad to have tried this new look. You can wear these with flats- sandals or sneakers, but I prefer this more high fashion look. It’s different and exciting. It just goes to show you; you can’t get stale. Try something new today. You may be pleasantly surprised!

To shop this look, see above. I have included several pairs of jeans similar to this because these have sold out, and we are all a little different with what details we like when it comes to wearing a new trend.
