Truth or Flare? – Your Turn

Before skinny jeans crashed onto the scene and converted me (slowly but surely) into a devotee some years ago now, I dabbled in lots of different denim shapes, washes, and styles.  From boy-fit to trouser, high-waisted to harem, I’ve tried them all.  Some stayed (standard bootcut) and some were ditched pretty quickly (shredded/destroyed & studded)…but ahhhh…finally!  The “one that got away” is back again.  Enter…the flare.

Growing up with television heroes like private investigator, Jill Munroe (Farrah Fawcett’s character on Charlie’s Angels), I can remember badly wanting (needing even!! – as in, put on a Christmas list) the kind of jeans that Jill wore…the kind that would make me look so fun! and fresh!  Heads would turn.

Well, the flare is back big time, Baby!  We’ve seen it on the runway from Coco Rocha, Adam Lippes, and Derek Lam.  And we’ve seen it on celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Hudgens and Victoria Beckham.  Now, as fall gets into full swing, we are seeing them everywhere…and on everyone!

We are looking for some friends and fans to show us how it’s done.  We want to see YOUR favorite flares!  Send a photo of you wearing your favorite flare denim, and you might see yourself HERE in an upcoming blog. Send pics to: denim@15ounce.com
