Sarah Hyland does flare jeans right and so can you.
Flared jeans are back, but when it comes to wearing this trendy style, there are few rules you need to follow.
Hem, hem, hem
The biggest (and most common) mistake with this look is wearing jeans that are too long (although occasionally too short). The hem should be within an inch or less of the ground. You want to see a bit of the platform or toes at the front but never more than an inch. Make sure when you go shopping you take a pair of shoes with you. This way you can work out exactly the right length for your height. If your jeans are too long, most stores offer hemming for around $20. You can also reach out to companies like Denim Therapy to get your denim properly hemmed.
Before you scoff at this, your jeans are an investment. Why would you want to destroy your beautiful new jeans?
Get your proportions correct
Try teaming your jeans with tucked in tops like a simple tee or a button down blouse, then layer it up with a blazer that cuts just on the top of the hip bone. Or try a longer line blouse or tunic top that falls to mid-thigh, teamed with a cropped denim jacket.
Body shape matters… sort of…
If you have super long legs, super flare styles are perfect for you. Never fear though, if you are shorter in stature, with thicker thighs, you still have options. Try jeans that are skinny through the thigh with a flare that starts just at the top of the calf like J Brand Lovestory Jeans or Marc Allison Shirl Jeans. These are jeans that work for all women. They slim the leg and lift your bottom. If your body isn’t the “ideal” shape for flares, fake it!
Bell and flare jeans look best with high heels. Truth. The silhouette hangs correctly. a platform or wedge style work well for comfort. Try a pair of Jeffrey Campbell platforms for a stylish look.
