STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Fall Flares

If you spent the past few years living in your skinny jeans, I assure you you’re not the only one. With the comeback of ’70s style, flare jeans are becoming more popular every season. This well-loved style of jeans has been making a shift from being a trend to a permanent wardrobe staple. Flare jeans are a trusted denim silhouette mainly because they are flattering on any figure. This style makes you look taller, and your legs look longer due to the extra volume at the bottom of the jean. Also, wearing high-waisted flare jeans make the waist appear slimmer. It complements any body shape because the bottom of the jean is not fitted. Many fashion lovers are still hesitant when it comes to this style, but I promise you it’s worth a try. Skinny jeans are made for playing it safe whereas flare jeans are a fashion risk and all eyes will be on you.

This Fashionista’s outfit exemplifies one of the many ways to style your flare jeans. She dresses her charcoal wash flares with an oversized cream-colored sweater, brown suede bootie heels and a gray felt hat. All these items are key essentials to a fall wardrobe and a chic denim flare ensemble. Living in Nashville over the past few years, I have seen flare jeans since the day I moved in. This style of denim has always been a staple in a Nashville girl’s wardrobe and now they are finally getting love everywhere. This Fashionista masters the signature Nashville street style and flare jeans to perfection.

If flare jeans are too bohemian for your taste, there are many different ways to style them. You can wear a lighter denim flare with a white T-shirt for a casual weekend get-up. Or, pair an off the shoulder top with darker wash flares and heels for a perfect alternative to your Friday night look.
