I finally bought some flare jeans (all the rage right now and a post-pregnancy indulgence) and and am loving their 60’s vibe, but prefer to style them in a clean, preppy way- not a super bohemian one. It inspires me to emulate the style of so many of my favorite fashion icons- Jackie, Audrey, Ali Macgraw and Francoise Hardy. Pair a good striped shirt and classic suede booties with them and you have a look you can rock forever.
Here’s a look I’ll wear any day! When it comes to finding the right fit flares, I prefer to look for pairs that are fitted through the hip, butt and upper thigh and then get wider starting at the upper knee area. When they are tight to the knee it’s not as flattering on the thighs (and reminds me of the 90’s and my Paris Blue jeans- yikes). These below are the ones I bought and fit just the way I desire (and hilariously yesterday Lindsey looked over at me from her computer and said “I need to take a picture of you right now” as I was buying this striped shirt while WEARING a striped shirt #ihaveaproblem)
