Flares are back guys. It’s happening!
I’m so thrilled that this middle-school style has finally returned. Skinny jeans had a pretty good run, but since I’ve thrifted a ton and experimented with a few styles, they’ve been at the back of my closet. I challenged myself to find the perfect flared jean this year – and I finally did! They are affordable, flattering and come in so many different washes.
My favourite affordable pair of skinny jeans were always the TopShop Jamie jeans. They are just high rise enough to suit a croptop, and really make you look like you get your squats in (for real!!). When my friend ‘Arielle told me that the Jamies now come in a flared version – I was stoked. They fit from the knee up are just like your good ol’ Jamies – but knee down perfectly flares just to give you an added length.
I wear a 25/30 for flat shoes, and a 25/32 for heeled ones. I’m just a little bit under 5’5.
I love wearing them with a small heeled bootie. They give you just enough height to elongate your legs, but not too much that you’re wobbling around the entire day. Finish it off with a chunky sweater – you’re perfect!! I also love wearing them with a basic sneaker, a blanket scarf and a statement jacket.
What trend are you obsessing over this season??
