3 Ways: Flare Jeans

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

This series goal? Exactly what it says on the box- share how to style an item three different ways. See last month's inaugural post here.) Are Flare Jeans even still in?  With raw hems, culottes, boyfriend jeans and mom jeans (which I am still not sure what these are. Besides, you know, jeans a mom wears.), maybe Flared Jeans moment in the sun has come and gone? I don't care, they seem cool- on other people. This month was all about trying to see if they could be cool on me. 
A black shirt tucked into a high waist- simple enough. In fact, perhaps even too simple, were it not for two things. The simplicity allows the jean shape to really stand out, emphasizing an elongated leg length. I added a red purse to lend a punch of color, and this outfit took me to museum exploring. We toured a temporary exhibit of Western Art that will be auctioned off at the end of the week; there are some amazing contemporary artists out there!

  I always love wearing this belt and this necklace together. They were both my grandmother's originally. I can imagine her smartly pairing the two gold items (though probably never with flared jeans as I am doing. She was very shocked by the Beatles' long hair. I can't imagine her jeans let alone flared ones- like hippies wore!). A floral top and heeled wedges continue to add to the more ladylike vibes here.
Once again I'm emphasizing the high waist of these jeans, this time with a cropped sweater. The outfit looks finished enough on its own, but it was cold (Fall is cruel lie in Wyoming. It was over eighty one day and then predictions of snow the next.), so I added a blanket scarf. My sister and I took Ellis out to the cutest little bistro! Its funny, but as a stay-at-home mom now, I feel like I'm having to rediscover my hometown all over again. What places are open for lunch? What places are child friendly? Where will the new favorite haunts be (besides Ellis' nursery, obviously)?

You can see other ways Flare Jeans have been styled on Never Fully Dressed (Without a Style) here and here. Will you be rocking the flares this fall? What styling tips do you have for them- share in the comments below!


  1. Yes, they do look cool on you! I like each of these looks, but I think the black shirt combo the best. Simple but so classy, and it definitely does let the jeans steal the show! Legs for daysss!

    I love flared jeans because my legs are so short- crop top + flares is my go-to for maximizing the illusion! Oh and I love what you said about mom jeans, lol. They do NOT work for me at all but I do have a pair of girlfriend jeans (similar-ish) that I looove!
