Guys seriously, it is freezing in the Netherlands. Thus, this time I’m styling my flared jeans with a warm sweater and an overcoat. I truly love flared jeans and in this post I’m going to tell you why!

A Winter proof look. This sweater is really warm, I got it at a very cute store in Utrecht, the Paperbird Concept Store – really recommend visiting, they have the cutest things! It looks very simple, but it has a special detail that made me fall in love for it. The sides in this sweater are open, giving it a very stylish edgy feeling (you can see the detail in this post). I wear it with a t-shirt underneath and keep warm all day. To be in the outside, I wrap myself in a classic overcoat – I love classic overcoats! Did you notice yet? The nude bag brightens the look a bit, otherwise I feel it is too dark. The flared jeans were in a friend’s closet for some time, and I’m very happy to give them a new life. Flared jeans are back as a trend, as you can find them at any store. So if you got rid of your old ones, or don’t fit them anymore (like me!), get yourself a new pair and go have fun, in a 70’s spirit.
I don’t always follow all the new trends. I will follow them if I like them and if they suit me. When it comes to flared jeans, I’m so incredibly happy to be able to wear them again. The reason is very simple. They really suit me well. Skinny jeans may be wonderful, if you’re skinny and preferably tall. I’m not tall and I’m not skinny, so skinny jeans never felt quite right to me. I have big hips and short legs. I feel that the flared jeans help my body to look more proportional while making me look taller. I still have skinny jeans, and I feel comfortable with them if I’m wearing heels. But sometimes I just really feel like putting on some flares. If you’re interested, I have posted a Fall look with this jeans that you can see here. I’m looking forward to wear them in the Spring as well!
