KICK FLARES I’M CRUSHING ON
Truth: I fear fashion trends just like you. Many times I dismiss them because they are “so not for me.” Sometimes I’m right, sometimes I’m wrong. It truly is a gamble. In the case of kick flare cut jeans (otherwise known as cropped flares), I was oh so wrong. This style hit mainstream last year after street style stars and It girls like Alexa Chung were seen wearing the denim trend. Naturally, I figured it wouldn’t work with my 5’4″ frame and was meant for girls with long limbs. Do you blame me? Surprisingly, I noticed a few petite bloggers embracing the look and I realized had to give it a go.
The verdict: I have officially joined the bandwagon. Au revoir skinny jeans, I found a new closet staple I like way more than you. They are so figure-flattering and are a great way to show off your shoes – both sandals and booties so you can wear them year round. Here are a few tips for finding the right pair…
How To Find The Right Pair
- The perfect length hits right above your ankle showing off the skinniest part of your ankle.
- A higher rise will accentuate your waist.
- Opt for a cotton blend with a little stretch or 100% cotton
Truly a flattering denim style for all body types – you must give it a try! Take it from someone who has the hardest time finding jeans. 😉
