One of the best things about playing with a trend is taking a look you like and making it your own. This fall 1970's fashion has been the darling of the design world and the flare jean has made a come back.  While these jeans look great with a bow neck blouse and tall boots, how do you keep from looking like a Charlie's Angel? Here are a few tips and some of our favorite jeans to keep you modern and relevant.

How to Pair the Flare:

  • Use Modern Accessories as Your Differentiator: If you are wearing your flares with a slim black turtleneck add a pop with a modern chunky necklace
  • Add a Little Height: Flares look best with a heel to help elongate the leg. Make sure to alter the hem to the correct length to start.
  • Layer on Top: We love adding a little clean menswear look like the Madewell shot above. The contrasting shades are sleek and sophisticated and add tailored structure to the look.
  • Keep It Simple: If you feel like layering you look is too complicated and you don't want to commit a vest or blazer, keep it understated. Flares look great with a simple half tucked tank or tee--that shows off the high waistline. If you are feeling a little overwhelmed with waistline focus add a long necklace too keep the eye moving.

Above all have fun with the silhouette and experiment with what works for you!

Stay Stylish,
