Feeling The Flare

Flared
Flared

Flared
Blazer (seen here) & Top-H&M, Jeans-old True Religion, Shoes-c/o LuLus, Clutch-American Apparel, Belt-Abercrombie and Fitch, Watch-Michael Kors, Bangle & Ring-vintage

While I love my skinny jeans, I'm thrilled that these 70s-inspired wide leg jeans are back in style. These jeans make any figure look tall and lean. I found an old pair hidden in my closet that were begging to be worn again. Flare jeans are the perfect day-to-night jean. For a quick night look I added a clutch and platform sandals from Lulu's. I'm happy to have an old pair to wear, but I'm on the hunt for wider versions with a higher waistline (like these or these)

Couldn't agree more, wide leg jeans always make me feel taller. I love this dark denim wash. Looks so polished paired with the blazer :) xx-Jackie

Stunning! I LOVE your hot pink nail polish in the 2nd pic - what color is it?

RosaLovesDC said...

I just got a gorgeous silk blouse to wear with my wide leg jeans. They are some oldies that just like you I found in my closet, but they are perfect.
Love the nail polish!

MG said...

Gotta call my mom and tell her to send all my flares that I held onto. So glad I did that! This look is so great.

Kayla said...

Adore this outfit. The grey blazers everywhere are killing me. I need one. Totally agree with the 70's flare coming back in style. The line it gives every girls body is much nicer than the skinny.

Everyone online seems to be sporting these wide legs again and I just haven't found a decent pair to flatter yet. I like that yours are such a dark rinse and love the polish!

I'm so excited to see the wider flared legs back - skinny jeans were getting tiring!
This H&M top reminds me of the Libertine for Target one that was just brought back. Love the mix of bright with navy!

I love wide leg jeans too! They compliment my curves well. Flares tend to accentuate my hips too much :(
Great outfit! :)
