Next to fringe, flares are without-a-doubt one of this season's biggest trends. Whether you keep it classic in a denim pair or decide to opt for a white {only $25!} or colored pair, I've been on the hunt for the perfect flares and I'm happy to announce that I've finally found them!

Here's a few things to look out for when shopping for the perfect pair!

 

:WHAT TO LOOK FOR:

1. Stretch: if you have any sort of curve, then finding a flare with stretch is a must. Look for a fit that's form-fitting in the butt, thighs, and all the way down to your knees. 

2. Aim for a bigger bell that flares out and covers 90% of your shoes {hence why mine are so long}. This helps create an hourglass shape as well as smooth and elongate your legs.

3. Stick to a medium or dark wash. Like most jeans, the darker the wash, the slimmer you look.

:HOW TO WEAR:

1. From oversized sweaters and chambray shirts to just a plain old cotton tee, flares will give whatever you're wearing on top an extra chic look.

2. The looser {the top} the better. I'm a girl whose style is all about balance. If you do a skinny bottom then pair it with an oversized top. And vice-versa. Therefore, I suggest keeping your tops a little looser and let your jeans do all the hugging.

Happy Monday!
