Spring Trend Alert ~ Flares

One of the hottest trends for spring is flares ~ especially flared jeans.  I'm personally loving the trend and am planning on adding a pair (or two) to my wardrobe ASAP!

White Denim Flares: J Brand, Denim Top: BB Dakota, Pink Bag: Dorothy Perkins, Floral Wedges: American Rag, Statement Necklace: Stella & Dot, Inspiration Bangle: Stella & Dot, Studded Cuff: Stella & Dot, Arrow Cuff: Stella & Dot, Ear Jackets: Stella & Dot
When wearing flares be mindful of proportion and your choice of shoes.  Don't go too long with your top like you would with skinny jeans.  A longer, tunic style top will just make your legs look shorter and mess with the proportion of the outfit.  A shorter top is your best choice or front-tuck your top to make the leg line longer.  And don't wear flats!!  The idea of flares is to make you look longer and leaner and flats will just make you look shorter and wider.  Your best shoe option is a wedge sandal ~ it's chunky enough to balance out the fullness of the wider leg and will give your legs length (yes, even if you are tall).

Have you or will you add flares to your wardrobe?
