In today’s fashion world, it seems like taking risks are the new trend. Whether it be outrageously bright colors or crazy textures, one of the more underwhelmed risks in fashion today are crop flare pants. You see them often on the sale racks in retail stores, but why? It’s because most people are afraid to wear these crop flares. Crop flare pants remind us of the pink capri pants we wore with our tennis shoes in the third grade, and we don’t want to go back to those horrid days. But they don’t have to be cringe-worthy! This Fashionista can be seen sporting black crop flare pants that give a chic and refined quality to the outfit.

Outfit risks don’t have to be overly in-your-face at all; this Fashionista decided to keep it nice and simple with a monochromatic outfit. Crop flare pants are the perfect way to transition from winter to spring, but of course, it’s still chilly in the mornings! I love how this Fashionista pulled on a classic, wool-blend coat to give the overall look some dimension and movement on top of the flat black attire underneath.

My favorite part? The pairing of the shoes with the crop flare pants. The pants are cropped, which definitely brings attention to the ankles and feet! This Fashionista made the wise choice to don a sassy pair of black booties with a thick heel and silver buckle.

Crop flare pants can go horribly wrong if they’re too high, but if you buy the perfect pair that hits right above the ankle, they can produce an incredibly put together look. This Fashionista could have chosen to wear black skinny jeans instead of crop flare pants, but that would have been dull. Crop flare pants are eye-catching and are sure to turn heads on campus.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “If you’re shorter, get high-waisted ones for sure. Otherwise, wear cute shoes because the pants show them off!”
