If you’re asking why you should take your pair out of retirement, here are 5 reasons why wearing Flared Jeans AKA Bell Bottoms add a ding to your fabulous steps:

1. It is universally flattering

In society, there is an overwhelming notion that we are supposed to strive to be perfect. We’re expected to look a certain way, act a certain way, have our lives completely figured out. That got me thinking. . . There’s so much praise around perfection, but no one wants to talk about being imperfect. Here, I’ll go first. I have a short fuse. A really short fuse, just ask @jtudaoey. I’m impatient. I have zero concept of time and have no clue how to manage it. But I’m also a creative. I’m fiercely loyal. I have a huge heart & I enjoy helping people. I’m perfectly imperfect. I am ME. . . So instead of trying to always be so perfect — how about we embrace our imperfections. Practice empathy. Love a little more. It’s time to let your hair down. ✨ . . #imperfectlyperfect #imperfectlyme #fridaymusings

The perfect Flared Jeans doesn’t stop at the ankle like the popular Skinny Jeans or the favorite Boyfriend Jeans. They fit snug on your thighs until the knees and slowly flares out until it hovers an inch (or even less) above the ground. They don’t cut your legs off and create a nice elongating line.

3. You can dress them up or dress them down

People often say that you have to wear wedges with Flared Jeans to maximize their sartorial power. Thankfully, that is no longer the case! Since the Flared Jeans come in different lengths and materials, you’re no longer glued to a specific shoe style. You can now wear cropped jeans with your favorite flats to achieve the same MOD (Model Off-Duty) look. You can see from the flared women’s pants featured on BNY Jeans it’s so easy to style that imagination, really, is your only limit.

5. They are comfy to move around in

This week I’ve been loving this flares and platform trainer combo. It’s like Avril Lavigne and the Spice Girls all rolled into one ☝️

We seriously can’t say enough about how comfortable they are. Since Flared Jeans are tighter at the waist and looser at the legs, you don’t have to keep tugging on them to keep them up like what you would normally do with your Skinny Jeans. Their wide leg room also gives you the freedom to sit down with ease, stand, walk, or heck, even run around in them!

While comfort is king, it shouldn’t be the only thing on our minds, especially when we go overseas. If you’re flying out the country for the first time, we hope this article on ‘How to Stay Classy While You Travel’ helps you keep it lady-like!
