The 70's continues to be a huge trend into the fall and while I love boho dresses, it's getting a bit chillier around here these days. I've had to get a bit more creative with how to incorporate those 70's vibes into my looks while layering up and keeping warm - boho felt hats and flare jeans have become my two go-to 70's style fall items.
The trick to wearing flared jeans is to really exaggerate that elongated leg. I love a high rise pair that just skim the floor. A lot of times, if something doesn't fit me just right, I can fake it: belt it, roll the sleeves, cuff the ankles, etc, but I think when it comes to flare jeans, it is most important that they fit properly which may mean having to bring in a tailor. I know, I know, but it'll be worth it when your jeans fit you to a T.
Be sure when you visit the tailor, you bring along the shoes that you will be wearing with the jeans. To continue that exaggerated leg length idea, I think a heel or platform style is totally necessary. During the summer, I loved my flares with wedges and now I wear them with my heeled booties.
