Turning Heads #Linkup- Plaid and Floral Mix with Mid Waisted Flared Denim Look 2

Hello Ladies!

I hope everyone is doing well. We had our first weekend here, where we didn’t feel like we spent hours in a sweat lodge! It was mid 70s and mid 80s, which is a bit cooler than it has been . I love to walk in the woods, pups in tow and just enjoy nature and quiet. We decided to go to King’s Mountain, about an hour’s drive, go for a short hike and have a picnic lunch.

As far as today’s outfit, I am sharing Denim Look #2, with the Mid waisted flared jeans, with a medium wash, super soft denim.  I have purchased dark denim clean flares, with no distressing,  just a dark rinse that I will share another time, a dressier style. I thought these were pretty cool, and I have always liked flares, just haven’t worn them much on the blog yet. It has been too hot to layer as of late, so I decided to wear this brown plaid  vest for added pattern interest, and my nod to Fall, even though it hasn’t hit here yet.! I mixed some floral and stripes in yesterday’s blog post HERE, so check that out when you get a chance.

When wearing Flares:

  1. Watch proportions: I often like more of a streamlined or fitted top, as to draw the eye to the flare. Make sure your top/blazer etc isn’t too long as it will cut of the length of the leg.
  2. Flares are fun for a 70s vibe, just make sure you don’t look like you are attending Woodstock. Less may be more!
  3.  A Heel is a better choice. Again, it comes to leg length. The shoe can peep out from the jeans , make sure it can be seen., I have a bit of a pet peeve when it comes to flares and the “dissapearing shoes”! Try a heel, wedge, or block heeled bootie.
  4. There are so many rinses out there. This is more of a casual rinse with the mid-blue wash, and raw hem. For a dressier look, try a solid, dark wash.

I  decided to go for a bit of a casual look, with this medium blue wash, a coral floral top, and plaid brown vest.  Mixing these patterns was fun for me, as I also love how a vest adds structure and shape to a look. Last, the texture comes into play with the peach colored Rebecca Minkoff quilted bag and my peach/brown snakeskin block heels , from ( you guessed it, ASOS). I shortened a peach floral necklace to add that trendy choker look.

The jeans are very comfortable,  soft, stretch with me, and would look great with a pair of block heeled booties ( Ive been looking. )

Outfit Details: Jeans Mossimo ( Target), Peach floral top: ( the limited), Vest ( the Limited) bracelet c/o Sylca Designs, watch c/o Jord, Rebecca Minkoff quilted bag, ASOS snakeprint block heels. 

Are you interested in texture and print mixing for Fall? How do you feel about Flared Denim?

    You really pull this look off. I have a pair of flairs I keep around to wear some of my favorite booties with in the fall. I agree about the heels. the flats can be saved for the straight legs. It’s you vest I particularly like-always enjoy a bit of menswear in women’s’ fashion.

    I think what it truly fabulous, is this seems like a different style for you. Sure, it’s still feminine with the flowers, but the vest adds a touch of masculine and the jeans are kinda boho!!
    I adore vests—-I could steal one like this from my hubby—thanks for the inspiration!!
