It took me awhile to get on board with this trend. As you know, what once was old, just give it time and it will circle back again. Hello to the neons of the 80's that are back in full force. I am rather picky about the fit and tried on no lie 10 pairs, until I found the perfect pair. I had a very patient gal helping me, that is for sure. I narrowed it down finally to this pair on sale by Hudson, mainly due to the rinse and fit. I also found them in more sizes on sale here. They aren't over the top 70's start breaking out the braided belts kind of flares but a more tapered and then tasteful let out.

Flare Jeans Are Back

How to wear them you ask? Well, lots of different ways. What I liked about
is that it has two front pockets which allows you to tuck shirts in and still have some coverage in the front. They are just high waisted enough, without being those terrible mom shorts length that all the youths are wearing. C'mon you know what I'm talking about! Can we start a petition or something to have those never be worn again? I picked up
from Free People (
on sale here!
) which hits right at the perfect line to the high waist of the flare jeans. This top has seriously become one of my favorite go to closet pulls. It is light, airy and does not wrinkle. It's perfect for travel! Runs true to size, I'm wearing a small in it.

Sizing guide tip! These
run big. I'm usually a dead on 28 in all jeans and I sized down to a 26. I mean......
way to make a gal feel good
. I also found
under $30 pair if you don't want to full commit to the trend. Like you want to dip a toe into the flare trend without financially committing to it yet. I mean how spot on are they? I have been hounding the website and they just came up. I guarantee they are going to sell out quickly so jump on them.

So what are you thoughts? Are you excited to kick out the skinnies for a little while? I didn't think I would be as on board with this but it was so fun to switch it up to the flare jeans from the regular tight skinnies. Happy shopping!
