Safari Vibes


It's been at least a decade since I've worn a pair of flared jeans. That was all anyone wore back then, but now we are super spoiled for choice with so many different cuts of denim in vogue. The cool thing about today's flares is that they tend to be cut a few inches longer so that they can be worn with heels for a more polished, figure-elongating effect. While this poses a bit more of a fit and style challenge, the overall effect is much more chic than the boot-cut jeans of yesteryear. Thankfully Banana Republic carries the majority of its denim styles in petite sizes as well, but even then you can see that there is no way I'd be able to wear these jeans with flats unless I wanted the hems dragging everywhere (and at 5'4", I barely qualify into the petite category). A pair of heels is definitely requisite when it comes to wearing today's flares.

Nevertheless, despite the more polished vibe of flared pants these days, I still dig the more free-spirited stylings of the original bell-bottom jeans circa the 1970s. I wouldn't go so far as to wear them with a furry coat and some round John Lennon-style sunglasses, but I styled them with my flowingest, most bohemian blouse from Free People and a tan fedora for that vaguely Penny Lane vibe. Paired with a beige safari jacket, the overall color palette of muted tans and a soft warm coral is a super pretty combination for spring.
