It’s really quite amazing how things flow in and out of style, isn’t it? I remember purchasing these J Brand Love Storys when I was in college, working at a small women’s boutique on campus. That was maybe, 4 or 5 years ago? (WOW, time flies.) I kept them even as flare legs disappeared from the runway and from magazines, lending way to more tapered bottoms. It must have been my mother’s voice in my head remarking, “you never know when those are going to come back in!” And boy, am I glad I did.
Wide legs and flare bottoms have been making a serious comeback this fashion season, as seen via the street wear and runways alike. As a small framed 5’4, I often have a difficult time wearing bottoms that aren’t 100% slim cut or “skinny”, if you will, but tucking in a shirt is the perfect way to shape the body for this kind of jean. A (tasteful) cropped top also does the trick. I have been feeling a neutral color palettes as the days have begun getting warmer, so I threw on my favorite pair of nude Louboutins and viola! A fresh, spring look.
