Kylie Jenner was spotted out and about in LA recently in a super retro outfit, and we are definitely feeling this look. She rocked a pair of flared jeans — yes, these babies are back in style! We’ve rounded up five ways you can try this cool, ’70s trend. SHOP!
Kylie Jenner, 17, is known for her street-meets-chic style and that’s what we love about her. Her street style is always on point and this time was no different when she was spotted parading around town in retro, flared jeans. The silhouette is totally hot right now, and it will still be seriously in style come fall — so why not get a jumpstart on rocking the trend? If you want to try flared jeans, SHOP our picks right here.
Everyone knows that Kylie likes to follow in big sis, Kim Kardashian’s, 34, footsteps when it comes to copying outfits, (who wouldn’t!?) — but Kylie always manages to put her own little twist on the look, and that’s what she did here.
If there is one thing Kylie is an expert at, it’s taking a casual outfit and making it super chic. This look is the perfect example — she rocked the 7 For All Mankind Vintage Trouser In Vintage Runway Denim with a cutoff gray cotton super cropped top, showing off her extremely tiny waist, and added pointy-toed gray stilettos to spice up the outfit — pointy heels are totally on point when it comes to rocking flared jeans.
Kylie is a big fan of 7 For All Mankind jeans — in fact, she even rocked a pair of skinnies on the Fourth of July with Jordan sneakers! We have to say, we like her flared jeans outfit way better — it’s so polished and chic.
Flared jeans have always been an iffy trend to try, because they hard to style without looking like you just stepped out of Woodstock — but we have you covered. You can try styling the denim like Kylie did with stilettos and a casual top, or you can tuck in a tank top or pretty, printed blouse and throw on some wedges. If you’re trying to go really retro, (why not!?), pair your flared pants with a block heels and a bodysuit — it’s a great way to balance out the flared bottom.
Since the denim flares out, we recommend sticking to a stacked heel, wedge or pointy pump — it is best to avoid flats and sneakers with this trend, (unless you have endless legs). A stacked bootie or sandal can be totally comfy and will give you a little extra height — see, it isn’t so hard to master the look!
So, what are you waiting for? Get a head start on trying this fierce trend before fall — and be sure to rock your jeans well into next season.
