cropped flare jeans

Lucy Hale was spotted in Los Angeles, wearing a pair of on-trend high waisted kick flare jeans that featured a raw high-low hem. She paired them with a breezy lace-trimmed camisole worn under a metallic cropped bomber jacket. To complete her look, Lucy added a pair of preppy black tasseled loafers, chic wayfarer sunnies, and an assortment of delicate jewelry.

Note, these jeans are in a light blue wash an not very form fitting, they actually do not flatter Lucy’s body shape at all.

Just to compare, last month, Lucy stepped out, wearing a similar pair of jeans in a darker wash, a printed boho tank top, and metallic silver loafers. She looks so much better in the darker wash flares. Check out the image below.

I have noted – my own experience – that light wash jeans, especially cropped flares, do not work well for shorter and not size 2 body types. And even more no-no when they are high waisted. A lower rise in this style is much more flattering.

So when you buy a pair of kick-flares, beware of the light blue wash and too high rise. A darker wash and lower rise is always a safer option. Check out some cropped flares here and here.
