Girls like me who practically live in jeans aren't exactly short on options in this fashionable day and age. Cropped, bootcut, skinny, boyfriend-inspired styles in all types of prints and patterns – the possibilities are nearly endless, and the term "blue jeans" is hardly an accurate descriptor for America's favorite go-to casual pants. The latest jean trend to make a serious comeback this season? Flares! The key to pulling them off the modern "bell bottom" in 2013 is to make sure the flare isn't too wide, and make sure they're long enough to pair with heels or platform espadrilles to elongate your legs for the most flattering look. To keep the look from appearing too sloppy, pair your modern flared denim with a top that's either fitted or can be tucked in (or half-tucked!) to offset the volume down below and show off your shape! Not convinced? Shop some of my favorites in the links below and see for yourself!
