Flare Jeans are back just in time for Fall

Flare Jeans are making a come back just in time for fall...

For years now skinny jeans have been the hottest denim trend.  Recently the boyfriend cut jeans have really gotten popular, but for may years it has been all about skinny jeans.  High waist, mid waist, low cut, super skinny, cropped or distressed, skinny jeans have been all the rage in denim.  At first I was not a fan of the skinny jeans, I always loved a good pair of boot cut jeans but once I found my first pair of good fitting skinny jeans I was in love.  They were perfect to wear with taller boots, no more having to battle to tuck in that extra denim.  They looked great with sandals, flip flops or heels, basically any and all shoes were fab with these jeans.

I personally have always had a love for vintage fashion.  I love the mid length full skirts of the 50's, prairie skirts of the 60's and of course bell bottoms from the 70's.  Basically every decade before the 80's had some major fashion staples that I love.  I was dreading when I started to see the 80's making a come back but I did enjoy some of the brighter colors, not so much neon but the brighter corals, yellows and greens were fun.  I am really excited to see flare cut jeans coming back.  They are a close resemblance to the bell bottoms just not as dramatic.  I love flare cut jeans with a basic tee or button down solid tee, leaving it tucked in slightly in the front or on one side.  Mid and High waisted flares look rocker chic with cropped graphic tees and tanks.  Wedges, boots and heels are great with the flare leg jeans, the more height the better with the jeans.

 I went ahead and put together a quick outfit idea on Polyvore playing around.  I went with a basic white tee shirt, Silver Jeans Suki Mid Flare jeans, a plaid blanket scarf and some ankle boots.  I added a tan hat, layered necklaces, matching belt and lots of arm candy.  Below are some links to some of the items from Polyvore, as well as some of my bargain finds and favorites.  I will be adding some more photos of styles I like with the flare cut jeans in weeks to come along with my own styled outfit choices using the Silver Suki Flare jeans.  I love to add a fitted blazer over a tee shirt for a more professional look, and of course a kimono or crochet trimmed long vest for a boho chic look.  The styling options are endless, and I am happy to see so many new denim trends for fall.

 My previous post I shared the moto jeans that I love with some tall riding or cowboy style boots, graphic tee or band tee and leather jackets for that rocker, biker look.  Can't wait to start getting some of my new items I ordered for my closet, looking forward to playing around and styling some cute stuff to share with everyone.  Enjoy this post and would love to hear what you think of flare jeans making a come back for fall.  I started seeing them back around spring but then summer was here and everyone was in shorts or capris, but now I am seeing flares everywhere.  I personally think it is refreshing to see the change, I love skinny jeans but I am ready for a new look and vibe with denim.  I am always game for distressed jeans, the more distressed the better and I feel the same way about vintage looks.

      Thank you for commenting and for all your kind words about my blog. I love to share my love for fashion combined with my passion for bargain shopping with others. I started this blog because I have a gift for finding fashion items that I see online, in stores or even on tv or in magazines, for amazing deals. I search the internet high and low looking for the same items or similar items for less and almost always can find something that works. I wanted to share that with others especially those who don't have time to look online for hours. I really would love to work with you and you can find my contact info under the contact tab or you can send me an email and dlitefultrends@gmail.com directly.
