They work beautifully with a platform wedge. Then you have all the height you need with absolutely no discomfort. I personally think that high rise flares elongate your lower half so much, that you can wear them beautifully with flats. They are much more forgiving then low rise skinny jeans which make most people look like they have short knock kneed pins. This picture says it all.
Love it ! But you don't have to travel to a "caliente" country to appreciate it. Last time I saw it was in Munich wore by a typical 1,60m blond-haired and blue eyed Bavarian girl. Everything is possible when you have found the quintessence of style !
I love the blue-jeans and nothing else jeans-like. What great styles and combinations without looking cheap like all the stonewashed jeans I see all around. Lovely examples, thanks for sharing and inspiring!
How lovely! Oh please, PLEASE tell me that these are making a comeback and that we can all take a little break from the skinny jeans/jeggings/leggings with tunic trend! How refreshing to see a waistline – and curves!
YES, YES. Let us PLEASE revive the flare as a THING. For men and women alike, let's bring that shit BACK. I will go ahead and say it, Flared pants from the 70s are some of the best clothing ever made. Seen that picture of Paul McCartney on the Apple website lately? His pants? … Between that and this rather STUNNING italian lady, I think the PROOF is in MY PANTS.
As a tall woman with high hips, high-rise jeans are the only solution to what may be misconstrued as "muffin top". Unfortunately, whenever I find the perfect jean, they're either too short or too expensive! Am I the only one who thinks that jeans over 100 dollars are exorbitantly priced???
I'm not trendy, IÂ´m not a fashionist IÂ´m not "cool". Often I really donÂ´t pay attention to what IÂ´m wearing (IÂ´donÂ´t care how I look) But I love your blog. Your sight. You are a poet. Kind regards from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Don't like these jeans, but have wool office pants in similar design and have to say that such pants are extremely flattering. You don't have to have long legs to pull this off; you wear pants like this + high heels to trick others into thinking that you've got long legs:-) Works for me, at least.
It's because she has the perfect bottom that it looks so great. Le sigh! That said, these flares are an excellent opportunity for the not-blessed-in-the-leg department to gain a few inches with a hidden stacked heel : )
I have been wearing wide-legged trouser style jeans right on through this skinny business I left behind in 1984. They can be dressed up with heels, played down with Chuck T's… and yes, they can be booty-liscious!
Is this the same girl in both pictures? I don't like the jeans but the colour is perfect, especially with the tan jacket and denim shirt with the flash of orange and blue in the scarf in the top picture. And I remember Made in Heaven jeans from the 70s when I sold jeans on the Kings Road in London. I suspect that the top girl would look great in anything….
I love this! About 3 yrs ago I bought some vintage Levis in the exact same cut…my Boyfriend laughs at me when I wear them(he calls them my silly high waisted pants), but I just think they are awesome….this young lady reaffirms my love for the cut of these jeans:)
Flares are great, but I must say I like the low waist with wide legs better, I never liked the highs waist shape, its makes the ass look too flat, like in the second pic. But if its low waisted you get that really round great ass :) Yeah I agree with some above, I am tall, I guess, 5,8, or a bit over average height, so I like and I think I can wear flares, but as I am also very curvy, not fat, but I got big hips, so I usually wear flears with high heeled shoes, put never ever with kitten heels, it has to bee platform or really chunky heels.
So excited to see my jeans on The Sartorialist (second picture)!!! In case anyone's wondering, they aren't vintage, but come from the 2007 D&G collection… Hope drier wether is on it's way to Romania, so I can wear them soon…
Nice. I hope flared jeans make a strong come back. I find skinny jeans nice on some people, but I just look fat in them. Unfortunately trousers like these have been hard to find where I live (Brasilia). To make things worse, it's pretty hard to find trousers that aren't low waisted (the kind that reveal too much you sit… eeeeeek!).
I just hope high waists are here for good. i am NOT going back to idiot jeans that slide off the bum and sag in the crotch. Higher waists look and fit so good. Flared or not they flatter absolutely everyone. if you look both of those women do not have very long legs proportional to their body at all. Its the jeans that make them LOOK leggy.
