I love my flares. It’s hard to argue with mile-long legs, ya know? And so, seduced by the concept of height (“go higher!!” my subconscious always whispers), I tend to wear my flares with heels.
And by “hem” what I actually mean is “hack off with scissors”.
Spoiler alert: I found ’em.
The pair I chose have a high-rise, and a slightly distressed vibe. The distressing isn’t as important as the higher rise, but it does seem to balance out the look (it’s more boho-summer, if nothing else).
To finish off the look I needed something that would take advantage of the higher rise….and a peplum top was just right. Peplum tops are something that can look strange with a low-rise pant, but were made for high-rise flares.
So the outfit combo becomes:
High-Rise Flares + Flats + Peplum Tops
top: Abercrombie babydoll cami – now on sale!
shoes: Sam Edelman Gabrielle sandal
necklace: wearing what is apparently a bracelet as a choker

Obviously, the on-trend cropped flare would work with this outfit formula, but for maximum leg-lengthening I still like the classic, full-length flare. There’s something about that slight 90’s vibe that feels fresh again.
