You're probably seeing these jeans everywhere - they're a little funky, a little short and sorta flared - and wondering how and the heck you're supposed to wear them.  Well, you shouldn't be scared by what you don't know...all it takes is a little education.  We are officially obsessed with this denim trend that's happening (we have at least four different styles in the store right now) and can't wait for you to love them too. 

Current/Elliott rolled sleeve trucker jacket, Max Mara stripe sweater, AG Jeans "Jodi" crop flare, Loren Stewart necklace and bracelets, Shiraleah leather tote bag.

1.  They should be cropped, but not too cropped.  If you happen to be tall they may hit you a little higher right above the ankle, but that's okay.  You really want the hem of the jeans to barely hit the top of your favorite ankle booties. 

2.  The flares range from baby-bells to just the slightest kick.  Choose a silhouette you're comfortable with, whether it's a super flare or or not, and you'll be much more likely to sport these all year long. 

3. Until you've grown comfortable with the trend, let the jeans do the talking and keep your other silhouettes simple and classic.  A pair of cropped flares pair perfectly with a striped tee, work wear jacket, suede booties and a messy bun for day or a crisp white shirt, a pair of sky high pumps and a bold lip for evening.

We can't wait to see how you interpret this new denim look, we know it'll be totally fab.
