Flares!! Flares remind me of college. Flares and black tops, too much bronzer and an extra 15lbs. Those were the days! But flares are making a major comeback – when I put these super comfy Madewell flares on for the first time Austin called them mom jeans and then asked if the 70’s were in style now. Hey, at least he pays attention! I was pretty impressed. But the answer is yes, and I happen to be really excited. I think flares are pretty flattering and easy to style – so today I’m sharing a few ways to wear this high-waisted style. These are the first pair of high-waisted jeans I’ve purchased in about 5 years. They have just the right amount of stretch and aren’t too high. And the truth is they are great mom jeans! Perfect for crawling around on the floor, bending over and all that comes with raising a 6 month old.
The Look: Striped Tee (sold out but similar linked)// Flea Market Flares (on sale!) // Wool Hat // Scarf (similar)
The easiest way to style any pair of jeans is with a striped tee. It immediately looks pulled together when you tuck it in — add a scarf and wool hat and… voila!
The Look: Flea Market Flares (on sale!) // Sole Society Kitten Heels (old but a great variety here) // Zara Blazer // Dagne Dover Tote (gifted)
The versatility of flares is that you can easily dress them up — making denim meeting appropriate (for my creative industry at least)! Tuck in a thin tee shirt or blouse and pair it with a blazer that hits below the button on your jeans. A sleek tote – like this one from Dagne Dover and pointy kitten heels finish the look, it’s still fun but professional.
The Look: Ruffled Hem Blouse //Flea Market Flares // J.Crew Heels (old but similar here)
And what may be my favorite look — a flouncy blouse and statement making earrings! Easy to toss on for date night or drinks with your girlfriends — or even wear to work! I’ve been wearing this top I got from Anthropologie non-stop since I ordered it – I love a good ruffle hem.
