A Closet Staple – 5 Ways to Wear Flare Jeans + Link Up

October 25, 2017

To me, flare jeans are a closet staple. I got this J Brand pair from ThredUp over 2 years ago. They have the perfect fit and flare shape and have been a key piece in my wardrobe ever since. Don’t get me wrong, I love my skinny jeans, but I think everyone should have a flare pair. They are really flattering and surprisingly versatile. I wear them often to work on casual Friday. I think sometimes shorter people think they cannot wear them, but I actually think it’s the opposite. If you hide a platform underneath, they add length to any leg! Today I am sharing 5 ways to wear flare jeans (the exact same pair for that matter). Are you a flare jean person? I’m linking some great options at all price points below.

The sweater I paired my jeans with in today’s post is sooo good. It’s really soft, has a flattering v-neck, and cool sleeves. They are looser and the top then fitted towards the bottom. I love all the slouchy sweaters that are so popular right now, but more fitted ones like this really are more flattering I think. The color on this one is unique too. I paired it with the ever popular $19 leopard scarf. I’m so excited to add it to my scarf collection. It’s a bit of a problem y’all….

    I only have one pair of flares, but I love them to death. Now that I figured out what shoes/boots to wear with them!!
    You look incredible Amy. And I can totally relate to the scarf problem (although problem is a strong word, can we just say love?)

    Because I rocked flares so much in middle school and high school, I haven’t been able to bring myself to try them out again. Maybe it’s time to try! That pair looks fabulous on you <3

    Love your flare jeans! The silhouette looks especially great with the sleeves on your sweater. Great combo!

    I love my flare jeans! They are such a nice option because you can dress them up or down. You look fabulous in yours. I have also been eyeing that bag for months now. So jelly!

    I love your leopard print scarf! I bought SO many of that style when it was trendy a few years ago and I still consistently wear them over winter, cosy and such a fun way to add a print to an otherwise plain outfit 🙂

    You look great in your flares – I really need to get mine out again! 🙂 It’s all about the skinny jeans for me at the moment, haha!

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you’re having a lovely week so far. Another nice warm spring day here, although they say the rain will be back soon 🙁 I might still have a few more jeans wearing days ahead – I tend to pack them away over summer!

    I’m crazy over flares! My only issue with them is that the length needs to be just perfect and sometimes I feel like I need a different pair for every pair of shoes/boots! 😀

    I love flare jeans but only with a point toe heel – that’s the only way I’ll wear them and I love that you styled them that way!! xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

    Flare jeans look amazing on you, I wish I could pull them off.

    I have denim flares, but a black pair would be so versatile. These look fabulous on you! Love it paired with the v-neck sweater and leopard.
