fall fashion alert: flares are back

One of fall’s hottest denim look is the flare jean.

I am very excited about this.

If jeggings and skinny jeans are not your thing, rejoice! Flares are so flattering on just about anyone and make your legs look slimmer while balancing out curves. But you don’t have to worry about looking like one of Charlie’s Angels. (Not that looking like one of Charlie’s Angels would be bad… They’re hot!) There are some more subtle flares that you can feel comfortable pulling off even if you don’t have a boho look.

The Rachel Bellbottom by 7 for all Mankind is DIVINE. Perfect. Gorgeous. And they’re only on Piperlime. Guess what is on my wishlist for fall now?

Although Joe’s Jeans Visionaire Flare Jeans are fabulous. Perfect for casual everyday wear.

I love the look of the Skinny Mini Flare Jean from Old Navy. Although I’m not sure they’ll look good on someone over 25… they’re pretty low cut.

This Trouser Jean from Gap is amazing! LOVE that cut!

What do you think? Will you wear the flare?

    We (when I used to work for Gap/ON online) started really getting into flares this spring, but since it was already getting warm, I didn’t get in and try them. I think it’s unavoidable this season. In the past I’ve been anxious about bootcuts that got to wide. But I know that they give balance to curves and thus deserve a try. Looking forward to seeing how your incorporate them into your outfits!

    Ooh, I am so excited! I am not a fan of the skinny jean. I just can’t pull it off. I do, however heart 7 for all Mankind jeans. The Rachel Bellbottom may be right up my alley. Thanks for the fun finds!

    This is such good news! Nothing like flares to slim down my big old thunder thighs! I love that they’re always just a bit longer than other styles too – so hard to find pants long enough!
