Skinny vs. Flares


Recently I’ve come across several articles bringing us up to date on the current jean trends.   Apparently flares jeans are about to be the “it” jean and skinny jeans will  be a look of the past. It’s pretty much all we saw on the runways this season, but are we seriously ready to ditch our skinnies?

Don’t get me wrong, I love my flares and have several I’ve owned for a while, however I’m not quite ready to completely discard my skinny jeans. 

If you were to ask me, which are your go to jeans, my answer would have to be of course, my skinny jeans. They are super comfortable and can be styled in so many fun ways. They look great with booties, pumps, sandals or for a low-key look, style them with your favorites flats or sneakers, add a blazer or cardigan and you’ll be as chic as ever. 

I honestly don’t think Fashionistas are ready to completely toss aside their love for skinnies.  I do believe we’ll be seeing a great mix of skinny jeans and flares for everyday street fashion.  

Just like our beloved Uggs.  How many times have we read that these are out of trend, and we should once and for all stop the trend?  However they keep selling everywhere and we just keep loving them even more.  

If you are not sure what jeans will be on repeat for you this season, I say keep your skinnies, add a couple of flares and consider yourself a trend savvy Fashionista. 

I’ll also share some of my current favorites.  

Happy shopping!
