Recycled Trends: Flared Jeans & Baker Boy Hats

Fashion

Flares used to be a thing of the past, then made a return to the modern style scene circa 3 years ago and since then have found their place in the modern jean market.

With the return of the baker boy hat and a whole host of denim ensembles seen on the likes of super models and celebs like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner it appears we are taking a nod back in time to the 70s. What I love about flares is they give off retro vibes, but are so easy to modernise with a few current trends and a little styling. 

I’ve always loved flared jeans, but I’m super picky about the style, the fit and the length, which has made it hard to find the perfect pair. Recently I got these stunning pair from Joes Jeans and I honestly cannot even describe how insane they feel. Honestly they are incredibly comfortable, not stiff like some jeans can be, and hold you in all the right places without cutting into you at the waist line. Click on the above image to find my pair of Joes Jeans. 

Flared jeans look better with shorter tops, waist length jackets and blazers to create that signature long silhouette. Longer and oversized tops can make you look a little frumpy. My favourite look is either a cropped denim jacket to go uber retro and double denim it, or a classic white fitted shirt like I have here. I brought this look up to date with this corset style belt. I think this also creates a nice silhouette - enhancing the waistline and elongating the legs! Win win. 

Length. Tricky. I think make sure the hem of your jeans ends a few inches above the sole of your shoe. I like a real long hem - channel Victoria Beckham, but alas my lifestyle isn’t particularly suited to tripping over my hem all day long. The best plan is to have just a little of your heels or platforms peek out from underneath. 

That leads me onto shoes - I have paired mine with some lace up Senso heels. Flared jeans do look better with heels or platforms. If you’re really wanting to channel the 70’s vibe go for platforms or chunky heels. Bring it up to date with delicate stiletto types and a pointy toe. The benefit of a heeled shoe is that they make you look taller and your legs look like you have #legsfordays 

The baker boy hat was a trend I wasn’t sure if I could tap into with short hair, but I mean Im kinda feeling this look. I think it adds to the 70s vibe from the flares. And what I also love is I think you could wear this day to night (add a red lip for a more sultry night time look) or even to the office as flared jeans can make a great chic office look.
