How To Wear the Flared Denim Trend


It’s time to let my ankles breathe—I’m switching out my skinny jeans for flared denim! It was hard for me to give into this trend because it just reminds me of my elementary/middle school wardrobe. I finally decided to give it shot because I love how flattering the wider leg can be, but I didn’t want to invest too much money into it yet. Luckily this pair from H&M is the style and wash that I was looking for and are under $30! The darker shade is very flattering and they embrace the flared trend without being too extreme. Plus they are so soft and stretchy! I’ve been wearing skinny jeans for so long now that I forgot how to style this cut—mainly what shoes to wear. To help elongate your legs, heeled booties or pumps are perfect. I like when there’s only the toe of your shoe peeking out. Here are some other great options:

  • I totally agree! It takes me back middle school. I haven’t bought a pair of flares yet, but it’s on my list. Love this look on you!

  • This is great!! I’m in love with that jacket too.

    • Thank you, Maggie! I bought it at Target a while ago, but I still wear it all of the time :)

  • It looks great! I need more time to delve into this trend, I am on the short and stubby side so I’m afraid it won’t be so flattering on me as it is on you >.<

    • Thanks, Gina! I think you could definitely pull them off! The right pair can really elongate your legs :)

  • Those are a nice pair of flared jeans for the money! Reading this post reminded me of my high school days when all I would wear were flared jeans. Now, I’ve been wearing skinny jeans for so long that I wouldn’t know how to style this look either. Love how you paired it with the blazer!

    • Thanks, Vanessa! I was glad to find a pair that didn’t look cheap, but still didn’t cost a lot since I’m not ready to commit to a designer pair of flared denim :)

  • The blazer and flared jeans combo looks great on you!! I adore the blazer!!

  • Totally agree with you on letting the ankles breathe haha – I don’t think I’ve worn anything other than skinny jeans for the last few years and finally I’m getting into the ripped baggy jeans and flares again!

    Love the styling here and that jacket is perfect on you!
