Cropped flares have taken the fashion world by storm this fall. They blend the figure-flattering silhouette of flared jeans with the shortened hem of a cropped pant. The best part? This denim trend is universally flattering no matter your height, body shape or age.
Here’s how to style a pair of cropped flares:
What tops to wear with cropped flares
The trick to mastering this trend comes down to three little words: less is more. Keep it simple by pairing your jeans with solid color tops or delicate patterns (think narrow stripes or small florals). Whether you choose a tee or a button-down, be sure to tuck it in to show off the high rise found in most pairs, accentuate your waist, and elongate your legs.
What outerwear to wear with cropped flares
Take this fashion-forward look to work by adding structure with a classic streamlined blazer. With fall just around the corner, a denim jacket, a long trench coat or a leather jacket are weather-friendly sartorial options as well.
What shoes to wear with cropped flares
Heels, booties, sneakers, mules—the choice is all yours! You can wear just about any shoe with this beloved cropped denim. For a timeless finishing touch, opt for a pair of nude pumps. Feeling trendy? Don a pair of ankle boots where the top of your boots just barely touch the hem of your jeans.
While venturing outside of your normal skinnies may seem daunting, once you slip into a pair of cropped flares you may never want to take them off!
