How To Wear Flare Jeans

IMG_1051

Let’s put flares on the list of things I never thought i’d own. They always felt clunky and like they were adding weight to my bottom half instead of detracting from it. But guys, i’m hooked. Few pants have made me felt slimmer and sexier than these.

When wearing a pant with a wide leg, I always like to keep the top simple but bold. No patterns or big volume, but a punchy color to draw the eye upward.

You may have noticed, but my solution to most things in life is: tuck, tuck, tuck.

Here’s my thinking: When wearing flared pants, you want your legs to look as long as possible. That’s sort of the point. So, tuck the shirt into the front of the pants to show the top of the pant line. This will make your legs look miles long and won’t cut them off mid-hip where your shirt ends.

What are your thoughts on flares?

My Typical Weekend Outfit

Top (from Madewell and a bit old, but it’s this shirt – i’m wearing a size XL for a baggier fit)
Vest (i’m wearing a size L)
Pants (i’m wearing a US12)
Shoes

If we’re being totally honest, this is what I look like all.weekend.long. and what I wish I could look like throughout my work week. Stretchy pants, oversized tops, tennis shoes and no makeup (could you tell?)

These pants were my attempt at dressing up the standard legging. They’re so supremely comfortable, add a bit of additional style with the side stripes and go with everything.

Paired with a flannel shirt and a vest? Solid.

Review: GAP Skinny Ankle Utility Chino

Top (here in navy), Pants (currently 40% off), Shoes (vintage, similar here), Bag, Sunglasses (the color I have is sold out, but here they are in black and tortoise)

I’m excited to review another pant that has recently become a favorite in my wardrobe: the GAP skinny ankle utility chino. I’m wearing them in the army green color, and let me just tell you that they are so versatile and have worked their way into outfits of mine, weekly.

On top of the awesome color choices, the fit was stellar right off the rack. I did have to size up in these, i’m wearing a 14, but I did that mostly because I wanted a bit of a baggier look, rather than a skin-tight jean kind of look.

These pants have about a 28 inch inseam, making them just ankle length when rolled down, and perfectly messy when rolled as I have them here. They also have a mid-rise, coming to just below my belly button.

I absolutely adore the long side pocket look and don’t think it adds any additional bulk.

If I could make one complaint about these pants it would be that the back pockets are flaps that close with a snap closure, and never quite stay securely shut. This isn’t the cutest look when walking around the office, but I find that I just close them every time I use the restroom and the problem is solved.

Are there any other pants you’ve found and are loving lately? I’m always on the hunt!

Restated Love for the J.Crew Pixie Pant

Top, Pants, Shoes, Bag (here in black), Sunglasses (here with green lenses)

Today’s post is dedicated to my all-time favorite pant: the J.Crew Pixie pant. I’ve purchased over 10 pairs of these pants, and worn through each one. There is no other pant on the market that is comfortable, versatile, and makes me feel great.

The thing I love most about the Pixie pant is the way it hugs the body. The fabric is very thick, and the waist is high, making the legs and tummy feel sucked in and lean unlike thinner, less form-fitting pants.

Pixie’s are also 100% opaque unlike many other leggings. On busy days, i’ve been known to wear these pants to work.

Also, can we talk about these sunglasses. Amaze.

This post wouldn’t be complete without talking about the (albeit few) pitfalls of the Pixie pant:

1. They wear out. The zipper on these pants is in the back, and wears out over about 6 months of wear
2. They are dry-clean only. Not a deal breaker for me, but annoying for sure.
3. They aren’t cropped in length. I like all of my skinny pants to hit right above my ankle, and these are full length. I combat this issue by rolling the hems as I do with most of my bottoms, but it’s something that should be noted.
