OUTFIT DETAILS

TURTLENECK: H&M (runs small – and very, very short!) (similar style HERE & I am obsessed w/this one.) | DENIM: Hudson (on sale) (similar option) | BOOTS: Callisto (mine are See By Chloe dupes!) | BERET: ASOS (craving this baby pink one!) | HANDBAG: Prada (dupe option) | WATCH: Michele | EARRINGS: BP (similar here)| LIPSTICK:  ‘Mauve’ + ‘Blankety

This was one of my favorite looks from our Boston trip – and probably a favorite outfit this fall. I am obsessed w/flared denim – and I have been for basically forever. Over the past 3-4 years that I’ve been blogging I wear flared denim at least once per season (featured on blog) but people always comment about hoping flares are coming back! And I’m over here like “oops, I never put mine away!”. I clearly do not pay attention to all of the ‘rules’ seeing as I prefer white/off white during the fall & winter months & I think brown & black look amazing paired together. I don’t know what it is, but I find that the fit is flattering on most women’s body types – more so than skinny jeans actually. Flares can elongate your legs (so opt for some type of heel w/them), balance your silhouette, & can accentuate your figure if you opt for the right fit. In my family [mom&sis code] we have a quick description for body types – we say you are either a hot dog or a hamburger.. meaning that if you are long and lean you have the hot dog shape — and if you gain weight it may be more visible from the sideview. But if you are hamburger shaped you are wider front on & if you turn to the side you look slimmer. Okay, lol, hopefully this makes some kind of sense. I’m totally talking about body shapes & weight gain & using food to describe it, oh boy!:P Anyway, in my family, us girls lean more towards the ‘hamburger’ shape so the battle is finding outfits that flatter from the front on & I should make note that I am not yet to my pre-baby weight so I am even more selective about what is truly ‘flattering’. I really love flared denim that are tighter in the thighs but have more flare at the bottom (think more bell bottom) – this will balance out the hips. Now, if you have the ‘hotdog’ shape, you may want less of a flare (think more bootcut). Although, I think the hot dog shape doesn’t have as much of a challenge – I think really long, narrow figures look amazing in high waisted, flared jeans w/ fitted tops/sweater tucked in!

All of that ^^ to say that I actually went into a department store in Boston and tried on 5 pair of flares to see which styles were most flattering. They were all premium denim – but you do not necessarily need premium denim! I did a post last fall wearing a pair from Express that are crazy flattering (see post.) My favorites for my body type that I found most flattering were THESE & the ones I’m wearing in the post. I will say THIS PAIR is $75 and look like the perfect wash!

Totally just spent the entire post talking about jeans – but I know that often times on blogs you see so many similar looks – basically everyone wears skinny jeans these days. So if you are looking for a fun way to amp up your look for the holidays and look more stylish – try some flared denim! Oh PS. I am not sure I can 100% recommend this turtleneck –  I got the medium and it is still super cropped. I couldn’t raise my arms at all w/o showing my stomach. If you are short waisted it may be great but considering the price point – I am not 100% crazy over this one.

Hope you all are having a great week so far… can you believe tomo is December?!?!?!?!?

  4. OMG Emily if you are a hamburger girl, which I always thought I was, then I must be a pizza or something else that is huge LOL! You always look so long and lean! I, on the other hand, have the hugest hips ever! Either way, you look great in those flairs for sure.

  5. I am obsessed with the low rise flare jeans at express! They literally have like one pair right now and they keep selling out! Ugh I am keeping my eyes open for when they come back in stock. I loved the low rise flare trend when I was like 17, so idc if it is off trend right now i still love to wear it!

  6. Love the edge those boots give! I’ve been into the Louis Vuitton Star Trails like every other girl… but definitely would go for a dupe instead!
