Denim is definitely getting it’s time in the spotlight this season! Not that it ever goes out of style but I feel like we’re seeing so many more options… dresses, rompers, jumpsuits, skirts (yes, those mini skirts from high school are back!) and of course, pants. Jeans are in a whole other category by themselves with all of the raw and frayed edges, skinny, wide leg, flare, the list could go on! One thing that I’ve seen to be truer in fashion the older I get is what goes around really does come back around. Anyone else heard that phrase from their mom growing up?! Granted, there’s usually a little spin on the item or maybe it’s called something else but if you go with the classics.. make sure to hold onto them! You’ll be ahead of the game when it comes back around…and it will!
Personally, I feel like we all have a little 70’s-inspired style in all of us. Whether it be flare jeans, bell sleeves, off shoulder tops, oversized items, block heels…. any of this sounding familiar?? It should because 70’s is in full force this season! Designers like Michael Kors have a strong 70’s influence in their work and do a great job with reinventing pieces.
These particular flare jeans I’ve actually had for a while! I had totally forgotten about them but I can already tell that they’ll be making multiple appearances this summer! I’ve attached some similar options below. The key to wearing jeans in the summer when it does get so hot is making sure they are light and breathable (distressed denim is great with all the holes!). Pair them with a crop top or chiffon tank as pictured.
PS. my handbag is now on sale! 🙂
