How to Wear Cropped Flare Jeans

This is one of those trends that had me scratching my head at first. Now I love it. This blog came about because we convinced a client looking for a new denim trend to try the cropped flare, but then when she went to wear the jeans without us, had a hard time figuring out the “right” way to style them. The fun part of the trend is that they look a little “off”, so it can be hard to decipher what is good off and what is just off! Here is the answer for all of you! You’re welcome.

Happy Shopping!

French “It” girl Jeanne Damas shows off her high-waisted jeans with a tucked-in tee, a long menswear blazer, and burgundy booties. How come those French girls are always so cool?
