gallery How To: High Waisted, Flared Denim

Flared jeans were a hit in the 70’s, then became popular again in the 90’s, with a less hippie and more grunge, casual style. With the bohemian trend making it’s way around again, so have flared jeans with high waists, but think boho-chic. This trend is fun to wear because it flatters many body types when worn with heels, elongating the legs
and torso. 



High waisted jeans (skinny or flared) are great when worn with a crop top to really cinch the waist.  Adding a belt, if possible, is another option to show off the waist. I paired my flared denim –similar style here– with a tie-front crop top from Francesca’s and a pair of navy blue wedges.


I don’t recommend this style denim for those who are petite, unless worn with a very high heel, or this could actually shorten you more. If you don’t think you would be daring enough to wear high waisted and flared denim at the same time, try one or the other first!

  1. Been there…done that….twice! Even guys like me wore flares, silk shirts, and platform shoes back then. You look great and could fit right in amongst the girls in my yearbook of 1977 🙂 Cheers.
