Return of the Flares at Free People
It would be silly to assume that amongst the hundred or so (or more) jeans I currently own in my ridiculous collection, there wouldn’t be a flare style or two. Flares are tough, I think…and to me, always look best on the tall, svelte model type. However, they also do well at accentuating one’s curves. But it’s always annoying, at least to me, to get the length right. I always stick with skinnies for the most part, because the same pairs can be worn with flip flops, boots, sky high heels, you name it, without looking odd. I don’t wear or own a ton of bootcuts, flares, or wide legs because each pair has to be cut for a specific shoe or shoe height, so they don’t always have the right flexibility for what I feel like wearing on any particular morning. But man, I do love vintage style, and bohemian, and the flare, when done right, can look amazing! Free People is one of those stores I rarely visit, because…well, I always want to buy the whole store! They also have a sweet partnership with Citizens of Humanity, in their denim department of course. Speaking of Citizens, the one flare review I did for Denimology was the Citizens of Humanity Hutton in Palais Royal! While it is a wide leg, I felt it was a whole lot more like a flare, and I felt pretty awesome rocking them. Free People is no stranger to the flare jean, but they have a brand new line that has me falling back in love with the look. Check out these awesome printed, wide leg, corduroy, skinny flare and even overall styles below!
The Indigo Stripe Flare below has me itching, as well as the Skyler Seamed Skinny above and the two at the very top of this post! I like a lot of contrast, so as well as we’re skinny from the hip down then big from the knee down, I’m game! Also, you always have me at printed denim…
Personally, I don’t really like super wide leg styles, but look how fab they look on the models! Body type is key…or maybe just the right sense of style to match the look…Baggier pants always work best with a tight top, in my opinion! I’m still not privy to the overalls, but I never have seen a flared overall so…here you go!
