They're Back! The Flare Jean

I remember my first pair of flare jeans in elementary school. They were from Limited Too and they had flowers running up and down both sides. They were by far the most fashionable choice for an awkward elementary-schooler and probably where my fashion career truly began... I loved EVERYTHING about them, y'all. Today I'm here to tell you that flare jeans are back. Yep, you heard me! The ultra-flattering, non calf-hugging jeans are making a comeback and I couldn't be more excited about it.

My husband is sometimes {rarely} right and he has always said that he thinks flare / bootcut jeans are more flattering than skinnies. Today I'm admitting that he is right about that in most cases. Harrison, did you hear that? You're RIGHT! Flare jeans flatter all figures and can elongate your legs. They have a balance that skinny jeans lack; the flare bottom balances out the tighter top, creating a slimming effect throughout the entire leg. 

One rule to follow with flares? Always wear them with some height in your shoe; whether it be a pump or a wedge. Wearing them with flats takes us right back to our younger days and looks a bit "juvenile" and less put-together. I paired mine with my favorite LEOPARD PUMPS. A pointy-toe is definitely my go-to with flare jeans. Shop my FLORAL TOP and FLUTTER-SLEEVE TOP {30% off today!}

I've said time and time again that my favorite brand of denim is Paige and these are no exception. But, you can find flares in almost every brand. NORDSTROM makes shopping for flare jeans super easy with their categorized jean page.
