The last couple of times that I cleaned out my closet, I’ve been debating if my flare jeans were worth keeping. I haven’t worn my flairs in years. This style of jeans got me through my middle school, high school, college years, and most of my early 20’s. It’s hard for me to say that the flair style is completely dead. I see people pull off flair jeans all the time, but for some reason, I feel like I’m not stylish enough to pull them off still.
I decided that the only way to truly decided if flare jeans still brought me joy was to put together a cute outfit wearing them and have a little photoshoot. That’s just what I did. My favorite pair of flare jeans are a pair of Express jeans that I bought years ago. These jeans take me back to 2008. I remember them well because I wore them out many times to the bar in college. I decided to try to style them for 2019, so I wore my ruffled striped top with them. For shoes, I always enjoyed a good pair of heels with my flares. I’m only 5’1, so I always need to add a little height when I can. I decided to try out my strappy sandals. I accessorized it with my leopard clutch and my pink pendant necklace. I feel like this look is cute for a night out with friends or a date night with the husband.
So after having a fun little photo shoot in this outfit, I’ve decided that I’m going to hold on to this pair of flare jeans. I will say that I did get rid of the rest of my flares. If you have one nice pair of flares, I’d say keep them, but from what I found out from my polls on Instagram is that most of you guys are not into the flare style anymore. So are they a completely dead style? I don’t think so, plus everything comes back around. That’s why I say if you have one nice pair still in your closet you should hold onto them, at least for a little longer.
