AO LA high waist flare jeans

To really feel the vibe of this post you need to be playing this song while you read it. Ha! I’m basically John Travolta-sashaying down the sidewalk.  Don’t worry – the uniform of San Francisco seems to be yoga pants a hoodie sweatshirt, so I was definitely overdressed and drawing unwanted attention when we shot this look (my first post shot in SF, okurr!).  Noted!

I recently snagged this camisole and these amazing high waisted flare jeans from Alice + Olivia when I was in New York at the end of May. If you’ve ever been in one of their adorable storefronts, you know how colorful and FUN the brand is. I felt like I was fully embracing my 70’s self in these jeans and knew I had to have them!

They recently launched a denim line, AO.LA, that has so many great pairs of jeans that are both stylish and comfortable.  In the past, I’ve gotten a handful of emails and messages from you guys asking if “flares are still in.” My response is always, “do you like them still? Do they look good on you and make you feel confident?”  In my opinion, when it comes to denim nothing really goes “out of style.” It just depends on what cuts and washes flatter your shape and make you feel your best!

Tell me if you have any flare jeans! I’d love to hear how you like to style them. Fun fact, I’ve also found that guys often like a flare jean.  Christian, along with most of my girlfriend’s partners, loves a good flare.

  1. Hi Kathleen! Last year I thought these fantastic FRAME x Karlie Kloss flares that are long enough for me and go over my feet ( I’m 5’10) and I was in love! Still am, but wasn’t sure if flares were still a thing anymore. I’m so glad that you did this post, because I really want to keep wearing them! I like wearing them with a simple tee to balance it out. I love the way you styled them!

  2. You look great in these! Personally, I stay far away from flare jeans as I have PTSD of my mom only dressing me in Delia’s flare jeans in middle school when all the cool kids were in skinny Abercrombie’s. LOL but you might change my mind….

  3. Great post! This outfit is just fabulous. It’s classic with a twist. In my opinion, flared jeans never goes out of style. Although I would love to see a post with your husband wearing flared jeans. I’ve never seen guys with a pair on!


    1. HAHAHA I meant guys love a GIRL in flare jeans! But now I can’t stop laughing, envisioning Christian in flare jeans. HILAR!

  4. I simply loved the whole outfit and your hair and makeup is pretty gorgeous!
