How To Style Flares For Fall & Winter

So here we are in lovely little November. 2015 is pretty much wrapping itself up, and I'm over here scratching my head like "Where did those last ten months run off to??". Ah well, at least it's almost time for some sweet potatoes with marshmallows! One of my favorites that you really can't get away with eating any other time of the year. Because it's an absurd thing to eat when you think about it. 

Thinking of all the events and errands that need to be done around the holidays has me realizing I have a few gaps that need to be filled in my wardrobe. One such item is a good pair of flares, and I've been hunting for some cute ideas on how to style them. Here are a few of my favorite looks for the fall and winter season.



Look 1:
Moto Jacket

This is a popular pairing that I love because it mixes up two different styles; the casual boho vibe of the flares with the more dressy, edgy look of the moto jacket. It just works!

Get the look: moto jackets: option 1, option 2 / flares: these "Flea Market Flares" from Madewell are all the rage. 


Look 2:
White Tee + Field Jacket 


This is a great weekend/ running errands/ mom duties look. I generally like the darker flares, but this lighter wash looks great with the olive green of the field jacket.

Get the look: field jacket / flares: here is a lighter wash and button up style of the Flea Market flares that are pretty cute! 

Look 3:
Stripe Top + Coat 


Here you can see how flares work well with a long winter coat. If you keep the cut clean it helps polish the flares up a bit. Definitely keep the cut above the knee, otherwise you will get into frumpy town territory. 

Get the look: stripe tee / coat: here's a nice clean cut navy blue coat, or if you are looking for a pop of color this one is fun!  / flares: I like this black denim pair as a nice alternative to a regular dark wash. And under $60!

Look 4:
Cozy Sweater

Simple, easy, and stylish. The ultimate trifecta.

Get the look: sweater: gray crewneck, or here's one in a cozy nubby knit. / flares: these Free People flares have a similar wash, minus the distressed knee and are on super sale. Or these have a slightly distressed knee and fun detailing along the bottom hems. / crossbody bag

Flares definitely should be accompanied by a heel or wedge. Here are a few cute options:

BC Footwear Band Heeled Boot Lucky Brand 'Yoniana' Wedge Bootie
Silence + Noise Half-Stacked Heeled Ankle Boot / Talisha tassel heeled bootie
Hollie heeled bootie  / Dolce Vita 'Gwynn' Wedge Bootie 
Apt. 9® Women's Heeled Ankle Booties / Head Over Heels Black Heeled Boots 
Heeled Bootie / Kork-Ease® 'Natalya' Burnished Leather Demi Wedge Boot
American Rag Baxter Mid-Heel Booties
