5 Ways to Style Flare Jeans

by Rachel

My love for flare jeans started in 7th grade, when I fell head over heels for a pair of impossibly wide flare leg jeans from JNCO - flames shooting up the legs and all!

I rocked that bad boy at school the next day and soaked up the compliments - okay maybe just in my head 😆 but at least I felt cool and that's really all that matters!

I still feel like a baddie when I wear them, which is why I'm pumped to see so many options available in stores again.

You too?!

Then read on my flare jean friends for a little inpso on how to style this silhouette.

A sleek and chic button-up

Tuck this shirt in and pair with pearl barrettes for a boss babe twist on flare jeans.

Blazer + graphic tee

A cool and classic combo no matter what bottoms you have on! 

A cropped cardigan/blouse

To up your comfort level, try grabbing a high-rise flare jean for a little more belly coverage.

Crochet sweater

Crochet is having a big moment right now and it adds a little retro touch that I just can't resist!

A bodysuit + kimono

This combo plays into the 70s boho look from whence the flare jeans came. And it's perfect for enjoying a patio happy hour at your favorite brewery this summer.
