Nothing in your 2015 summer wardrobe reveals more Seventies vintage appeal than fabulously flared jeans. They can be worn with plain white tee and sandals for a simple casual style, but nowadays you can do so much more. Bring this retro style totally up to date with today’s flared jeans, incorporating the distressed look ranging from sun-bleached fading to rips and holes. Or opt for a more up-market feel with a beautifully tailored denim pair that look great with a blouse and jacket.
The classic casual style is certainly all the rage this summer. With hip-hugging designs that flare from the knee, this popular look is a great way to show off your curves. You can also ring the changes by teaming your jeans with different tops and shoes, and adding a variety of accessories. Choose a distressed denim pair with extra length that sweep the ground, and featuring a wide turn-up feature. These look fantastic when worn with plain black tunic top and cropped leather jacket with zip details. A similar pair can be worn with plain tee and monochrome print puffer jacket with leather patch inserts, with little suedette shoes. For a real distressed impact, opt for a style with ripped holes at knee. These can be worn with a light jersey tunic with plunging neckline, overlaid with loose classic buttoned jacket, with leopard-print ballet pumps and an oversized shoulder bag completing the look.
But flared denims can also exude stylish chic. A well-fitted pair that flare from the knee look wonderful when teamed with a classic blouse, with three-quarter sleeves and trimmed with neck bow feature. Accent your waist with a leather belt, and emphasise your height with stiletto heels. Add a large tote bag and modern sun-shades for the finishing touch. A smooth pair of flares with top-stitch seam finish, matched with a striped long-sleeved fishermen’s top and cork platforms, give you cool Gallic appeal. Or go the whole hog with a French-cut style that flare sweepingly from the waist. A mid-blue pair in light denim, worn with a light long-sleeved jersey crop-top, make a superb vintage statement, especially worn with a pair of cork mules and matching blue clutch bag with chain-link shoulder strap.
And don’t forget that jeans doesn’t have to mean blue denim. Black or taupe flared jeans, worn with floral print tunic and cropped jacket, together with strappy sandals, give timeless appeal.
