Styling Flared Jeans (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup!)


After last week, i think you can all appreciate my love for skinny jeans, ripped ones in particular. 
But i had an urge to try Flared jeans again. An itch that just had to be scratched. I had dabbled with a pair earlier in the year and just didn't get on with them: too low cut, not flared enough and too short. 
I put it down to a style fail rather than a whole complete fat fail. It was just finding the perfect fit that was proving as epic as the search for the holy -flippin'-grail. 
Rewind about 7 years and i had the most perfect flared jeans. Great length for wear with heels, nice cut and fit and generally a great jean. I wore them all the time, and i'm talking before flares were cool again here. I'm way ahead of the trend (which incidentally makes me completely off trend at the same time. Bother!) So these perfect flares were River Island and only to be ditched when i gained all the weight and i couldn't prise myself in to the poor things a moment longer.
So with hope i turned back to River Island. And man did they deliver!
I picked these Mid Wash slightly distressed(i love me some rippage.. even a word!?) flared jeans and bought without trying on, thinking i could always return them if it turned in to another flared fail. 
But i tried them on, styled them up, and freakin' loved them. Flares Forever i say!! Except on days when its raining cos soggy flares are just no fun.

I paired my new fancy flares with this new season Warehouse Summer Floral Blouse which is the same floral print as my favourite midi dress from earlier this year (they do the blouse in blue, like the dress too, which obvs, i now totally want too!) And i felt all warm and autumnally (seriously, what is up with my vocabulary today) 'cos quite frankly i've bored myself to tears with moaning about our crappy Biritsh Summer.. i mean being British you'd think i'd be used to perpetual rain and wind, even in the height of summer. But no, each year i act like i've never seen rain in summer and offended at how hard done by i am. Well not any more.
I'm just going to full on embrace the new Autumn/ Winter collections to make my ordeal a lot easier!
Shopping anyone? ;)

  1. I have the flared jeans, and have to say I'm finding them hard to get used to after wearing skinnies. I haven't bought too much AW/15 yet but that gorgeous shirt just went onto my wish list!

  2. Ahh, I have a pair of flares in the mail and this is making me want to wear them even more! I love your blouse--the colors make it perfect for Fall, too!

    Thanks for hosting the link-up!

  4. You look so hoooot! Amazing outfit and on trend for fall. Stealing this look for inspiration hon! Thanks for sharing and hosting the link up :)

  5. Oh, I really love this outfit! I'm wearing flares today as well -- Frames, which are really stretchy and a mile long! -- but with a white buttondown rather than a cool print. I think I have to head to Warehouse to check out this blouse -- if I can find it, as they only carry a small selection of their collections here in Norway. Sometimes they'll only carry the cool stuff, though, and this shirt is cool! I have a small collection of their printed silk blouses and amazing A-line leather skirt that all work perfectly for autumn.

  6. This post made me giggle - I'm totally with you on the Autumnal weather! I've been indulging in it though with hot chocolate and throwing open the patio doors to watch the rain with a blanket around my shoulders. It's nice to see the sunshine back just in time for the weekend though, yay! Beautiful outfit, the colours of the blouse, watch, nails are a lovely mix. And yes, flares forever!! I totally agree!! What happened to all those perfect bootcut jeans we used to wear when we were 17???
    p.s. how often do people tell you you look like Kate Middleton??? :)

  13. Love this whole look. That shirt goes perfectly with the flared jeans for a 70s vibe.

  14. These jeans look amazing on you! I have always preferred flared over skinny because they are more flattering for my body type.

  17. I've finally embraced the flared jeans too, Rachel - never thought you'd get me out of skinnies - but like you it was because I found the perfect pair!! (Mine were from good old M&S!)

    These look AHmazing on you. Shoes are the trickiest thing to know what to wear with them but you've got it spot-on with the wedges (they need to be chunkier, don't they?) - and oh LORDY I love that blouse!!!!!!! Such a great look, sweetie - it looked great when I saw the first image but then let out a little squeal when I scrolled down and saw that you were wearing flares...!!

    Have a great weekend and *thank you* for hosting :)

  20. Great colour palette, Rachel!
    Yes, I have bought new Autumn pieces! I love planning the AW season before it begins...Autumn is my favourite time of year and I get to layer up again after summer. Although this summer has been a bit chilly so far, so the layers didn't get packed away too far.
    I love the new red trend that seems to be everywhere.
    And, of course, faux fur.....it is apparently not allowed over 40, but I will be rocking it this winter.
    Thank you for a great link up.
