The Flare

Flared jeans. Ahh, I have been bucking this “new trend” for some time but I have finally decided to give it a go. I put new trend in quotations because as you all know it’s really not new. In fact, I feel like it’s too soon for them to be back… Maybe that’s me aging quicker than I’d like but I swear we just got over them.

Because I’m not fully sold on the flares just yet, (it usually takes me a few good wears/outfits to feel comfortable and commit) I didn’t go out and purchase a new pair. Instead, I pulled out these old William Rast ones that I didn’t have the heart to get rid of as I bought them when I was in college and spent my months grocery money on.  Don’t judge I know you’ve been there, too.


I’m not sure if I’m completely sold on them yet but it doesn’t hurt to experiment especially when they’re just sitting in your closet taking up space. Did you keep any flares? Have some fun and give them a go!

    I love that you already had a pair of flares in your closet ! Amazing haha ! But I too am very on the fence about them, I kind of want to get a pair but at the same time it just reminds me of elementary school so much ! Oh well, maybe it will happen once I try a pair on but I’m not sure. I love the look of them though, they do elongate your legs for sure !

      I totally know what you mean… I am on the fence about them. I’m lucky that I had a pair and didn’t have to spend money on something that I wasn’t exactly sold on, you know?! Maybe try finding a pair at the thrift shop I’m sure there are a tonne of them around!

    Flare jeans are perfect for the fall season. They’re a nice alternative to tight skinny jeans. I really like how you styled these with the white blouse!
