10th Commandment: September 3

Sep 3, 2010

After years of skinny jean domination, the flare leg is back in a big way.  Move over matchsticks and straight legs, my ankles are about to breathe free again.  Pear shaped women, rejoice!

    They're jeans, how can they be ugly?

  3. Kristin says:

    As a short-legged person with no hips and a flat ass, I find straight leg or skinny jeans much more flattering….but I may dig out that old pair of flares I have lurking in my closet, just for curiosity's sake. But what kind of top goes best with flares? You should do a post on that!

  4. D says:

    Thank god for flare legs! My short legs and hips do not look good in skinnies.

  5. Carly says:

    Can you please do a post on fall boots? I am so anxious to get some new boots but I am overwhelmed by all the options and styles out there.

  6. Stephanie says:

    I love a great pair of bootcut jeans, but I just can't get behind flares. Too reminiscent of middle school and high school for me (especially in that last pic, where they're paired with white sneakers)!

  7. P says:

    oh nooo this is awful news!

    how do you work flare jeans with boots? jeans over the boot? squished into them? im really curious to know!

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer
