The Return of Flare Jeans

I know I’ve left you all with tons of words to read and pictures to look at this week so I’m keeping today’s post short & sweet!

My latest obsession is flare jeans! That’s right – 70’s style flare jeans. I think the last time they were semi-back-in-style was when I was in 6th grade. That died off quickly but they’re back again! I have yet to try on a pair and I’m scared that, due to my short torso and high waist (oh, and short legs) they won’t look as fabulous as they do on the below models. Two of my favorite bloggers Emily over at Cupcakes and Cashmere and Sydney over at The Daybook totally ROCK these styles!

I LOVE the tucked in blouse with a skinny belt look but, like I said, I’m not sure I’ll be able to pull it off. Maybe with the right flares? I’m anxious to try some on!! P.S. that handbag in the last picture… not only is it a beaut but she designed it for Coach! Awesome, right??

So, what do you think about flare jeans? Hot or not? Should we bring them back or leave them in the 70’s?

I'm pretty sure I never got the memo that they were out of style. Oops! While I mostly have bootcut jeans now, I still rock the occasional flare. It super flattering for my body type and a lot of others. So glad they're "back". I love them a little long w/ wedges :)
