Needing, Wanting, Loving: Flare Jeans

It's official- low-rise flares are back this fall.  And make no mistake about it- my 14 year-old self is rejoicing!  To be honest, I never could pull off the boyfriend jean or the high-waisted pants, and after a weekend spent at Austin City Limits, I'm praying I'll never have to see the high-waisted-jean-shorts-with-a-bit-of-butt-peeking-out ever again.  But what is universally flattering?!  A flared leg.  It hugs in the right places, giving your body the right amount of feminine contour. 

This trend could not have come at a more opportune time.  I'm in desperate need of pants.  Currently, I own 1 pair of pants and subsist in leggings and tunics for winter.  Obviously, I know this won't cut it during my first NYC winter.  And all you men, don't assume this trend is off limits for you.  Just take a page from one of my favorite movies, American Hustle, and rock them like Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale:

I kid, I kid!  Now, in case you aren't as thrilled as I am to see this reinvented silhouette back in the spotlight, let's all be thankful for one thing- no velour tracksuits have been spotted just yet.  

Happy Tuesday!  I hope you all had a great weekend. 


  1. Flared jeans are my favorite ones! They make my legs look longer and slimmer!
    thanks for the inspiration

  2. I love the look and think they are the most flattering style. Hope you're having a great week!

  3. What kind of footwear would you use with flared jeans? I'm assuming some heels but do you have any ideas?


What say you? I'm all ears.
