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 wore flare jeans all through high school, so they have a sweet spot in my heart. I totally agree that they can really add height, plus I feel like they balance out my hips! Love flares and all the ways you styled them.

    Such a cool and pretty sweater and I need that leopard scarf now that it is restocked. This post reminds me of getting out my flares and wearing them for Fall. Thanks for the reminder and style tips. =)

    I couldn’t agree more with your sentiments on flare jeans! I am actually wearing mine today haha and every time I wear them I feel like I look so tall – it’s the best for this short girl!!

    Love that you showed so many different ways you can wear flare jeans, even all through different seasons! I also really love a flare jean with a dark pointy toe bootie and wrap coat cinched at the waist and a cute scarf in the winter.

    I love flares! Though, I am always looking for a pair short enough so I don’t need them hemmed. Love this whole combo!

    Love this post and love my flare jeans! I agree with you – they’re so versatile and there’s just something about the cut I’ve always been drawn to. Loving how you’ve styled them in today’s post! That sweater is so beautiful! Perfect with the leopard scarf!
    Inspired by you, I bought myself a Fiddler’s Cap and styled it in my blog post today. Gave you a little shoutout for the style-inspo πŸ™‚ Thanks again!
