Style Inspiration: Flares

We all know that fashion is a constant wheel of reintroducing what already was in style in a fresh, slightly tweaked manner. This fashion rule has recently found us being reacquainted with flares. This year, we are wearing them cropped, high rise, with a raw hem and really with any shoe you want. Below you can uncover several looks that we have pulled together in order to show you that you really can wear flares, even if you don’t consider them to be within your typical style comfort zone. Truly, it’s easier than you think!

THE STATEMENT SHOE

Mixing a phenomenal shoe with any look goes far, but we can’t say *YES* enough about the combination of the statement shoe mixed with the crop flare. There is no need to hide the shoe here by wearing your flares to the floor. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. It’s all about the shoe with this look. We all have great shoes in our closets that need to be worn,  so why keep them hidden in the confines of your wardrobe? Here a fairly casual look has been created by combining classic denim, a popover and a small shoulder bag.

SNEAKERS

Cropped denim in general works well with sneakers, and cropped flares are no exception! This is an easy, on-the-go look that will keep you feeling chic but ready for what the day has in store for you. That to-do list won’t have anything on you!

FLATS

You can see how easily the cropped flare pairs with a flat sandal or shoe. The little bit of crop gives this style the fun, flirty, preppy look it needs to be an ensemble, rather than just a plain Jane outfit. As you can see, you don’t even have to be tall to pull off the crop flare!

MOTO

If you want an edgier look, mix in a moto jacket and black booties with your crop flares. Again, it’s all about showing the shoe! Bonus, if you have a pair of flares from years past that you want to transform into crop flares, all you have to do is take your scissors to your jeans! Believe us, you’ll be happy you kept your old flares!
