How to Style Flare Jeans
Flare jeans are back in a big way (not that they ever really left). From the most fashion-forward runways to celebrities on coffee runs, we’ve seen this versatile fashion staple popping up everywhere. Are you wondering how to style flare jeans for maximum impact? Look no further. We're sharing our expert tips on elevating your everyday look to create effortlessly stylish outfits with our famous peach-hugging fit.
Play With Proportions
First things first, choose your flares. Whether you’re jumping in head-first to our Eastcoast Flare or dipping your toe in with our Dusters Bootcut (not technically a flare, but we’ll allow it), the flares you choose and how dramatic they are will impact how you style the rest of your outfit. The distinct silhouette created by flare jeans gives you the opportunity to play with proportions. Try tucking in a fitted top to accentuate your waistline or pair them with a vest to create some negative space.
Use Basics to Your Advantage
Sometimes it’s best to let the flares speak for themselves. If you want your jeans to be the focus of your outfit, use basics to your advantage and keep things simple. Pair your flare jeans with a plain white camisole or a classic t-shirt for a chic and minimalist look. This tip works particularly well with a coloured pair of flared corduroy jeans.
Reach New Heights
Further accentuate your flares by pairing them with your favourite pair of heels. Depending on the style, fabric and colour of your jeans, you could pair them with many different options – including classic stilettos, chunky platforms, and retro wedges. Remember, heels don’t exclusively have to be used to elevate and polish your look! You can play around with showing off a statement pair of shoes with our cropped Eastcoast Flare Ankle jeans. Have some fun.
Layer It Up
When you think about it, flare jeans are just like any other pair of jeans: the perfect basis for an outfit and an excellent canvas for layering. Experiment with different lengths and textures by adding knitwear, an oversized shirt, or a long-sleeve top. Choosing layers is where you can make an outfit your own – adding personal dimension through your styling touches (while being prepared for whatever the weather throws at you).
Chances are, when you think flares you think ‘70s. While there’s so much more you can do with a pair of flare jeans, it’s never a bad idea to embrace history and style yourself a retro-inspired outfit. Start with our Brown Cord Eastcoast Flare and build from there. Flowy linen tops, floral blouses or tie-up shirts are all fantastic options for adding a little bit of nostalgia into your look. Remember to opt for bold patterns, earthy tones and fun prints when choosing pieces.
Flare jeans are one of our best-selling styles for a reason. This peach-hugging fit can be styled in many ways – whether you’re playing with your proportions or keeping it simple with basics. Style them with heels to elevate your looks, layer up for cooler weather or lean into a retro-chic ‘70s-inspired outfit – the choice is yours. Happy shopping.
