If you’re like me, you probably haven’t worn a flare jean in a few years – but this spring – the flare is back in full force and it’s time to embrace it!
I am all about a high-rise. Whether it’s a skinny jean, jegging or dare I say “mom jean” — I am obsessed.
In a flare, a high rise is especially important to give this jean a modern feel and not look like you just pulled out your favorite jeans from the 7th grade when low was the way to go.
I know some people are scared of a high-rise, but the style is actually super flattering on most shapes. It won’t give you the dreaded muffin-top and definitely elongates the legs. (Win-win!)
For this look, I paired my American Eagle Outfitters Hi-Rise Artist Flares with this great button-down from Forever 21. I love the light wash of these jeans. When I put them on I immediately channel my inner Rachel Zoe and want to say, “ba-na-nas.”
This woven top was a hidden gem I found on a recent trip to Forever. I love the soft linen and stripes. It’s the perfect staple as we head into spring/summer. I see me pairing it with so many different bottoms but I love the look of a button-down with a high rise pant.
In these flares, I made sure to get them in a longer length so I could wear them with heels. (Pro tip!)
For the past year I have been loving delicate gold jewelry. Whether its layering a few different necklaces and rings (post coming soon), I love the idea of simple dainty jewels for everyday. This gold necklace I randomly came across at a mall staple, Windsor! Who knew, right? The ring I recently picked up in a pop-up shop in Chelsea Market here in NYC by Alexandra Beth Designs.
Adding my favorite Ray-Ban aviators and pop of color with my Kate Spade Saturday (RIP) crossbody I felt easy and breezy walking around the city.
Are you ready to give your next outift some flare?
