Flare Jeans Are The Wave - Here's One Pair, Four Ways

Flare Jeans Are The Wave - Here's One Pair, Four Ways

Just call me Gucci Mane La Flare Jeans.


Allow me to introduce you to the jeans you'll be wearing the rest of 2020: the flare jeans. The 70s inspired trend is one that you'll need to jump on because you don't want to be left behind. The allure of flare jeans made its way to the runways this past season from designers like Celine to Michael Kors. That means the time to jump on the wave is now.

As a youngin, I would flip through my mom's high school photos just to spark creativity. One of my all-time favorite lewks from muva included a pair of badass flare jeans. Distressed, vintage or high-waisted, the fashion proportions are on your side when it comes to finding your perfect pair.

To show the versatility of one pair of flare jeans, I have styled four different looks. One of my favorite features of these Citrus Husk Boutique's 1988 Uber-Flare Denims is the frayed hem; it gives them edge. Ahead, find some serious style inspo!

Tee + Flare Jeans

On my Janelle Monae tip, I paired my flares with a classic slogan white tee and white accessories because what's more timeless than black and white. When in doubt, pair one of your treasured tees with these bottoms to keep it cute and cool.

Blazer + Flare Jeans

I grabbed my go-to blazer to throw over my shoulders for a retro vibe. This blazer was one of my greatest thrifting finds with its padded shoulders and striking color. Whether you consider yourself stylish or not, you need to own at least one blazer. Lucky for us, you can purchase them at all price points.

You might not be heading back to the office every day just yet but you could easily replace this Mix Boutique crop top for a chic blouse and save the crop top for your socially-distanced date.

Playing with shapes, I coupled this off-the-shoulder, bell sleeved top with the 1988 Uber-Flare Denim. I love how the similar silhouettes create a harmonious getup. This marrying of figures is ultimately strategic; it is gracious to all body types and emphasizes my curves effortlessly.

Kimono + Flare Jeans

Kimonos and flare jeans are one of fall's favorite combos so as you prepare for the next season, make sure you have a couple in your arsenal.

1) This kimono is my favorite because it's custom.
2) It's also my favorite because a dope ass black, female designer, CR LEE, made it for me.

With the fall usually being the prime time to get inspired by fashion weeks around the world, it's going to look different this year now that we are living in a pandemic. Don't fret though, we want to empower you to try an assortment of kimonos and even long-line cardigans with this spectacular bottom to spark some style ingenuity.

8 Kinds Of Sex Every Couple Should Have In Their Rotation

When people get comfortable in long-term relationships, they often lose their spark. Relationships are like monthly subscription services. You get the first month for free, but after that, you have to actually start investing in order to continue to reap the benefits.

'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' Reminds Us That Angela Bassett Is Still Owed An Oscar

In a world much fairer than the one we currently occupy, Angela Bassett shelves would be adorned with multiple Oscars. While watching the latest installment of the Black Panther franchise, I was reminded of the sheer brilliance and excellence of the actress who has blessed audiences with her boundless talents for over three decades now.
