Flared jeans tend to garner some pretty mixed reviews (including a strongly disapproving one from my own boyfriend), but that doesn’t stop me from wearing them. They’re a nice departure from the skinny jeans that dominate my jean collection, so it always feels a little like I’m playing dress up when wearing them. These are the second pair I own and I can’t speak highly enough about how soft and comfortable they are. My other pair have a more modern feel, but I wanted to invest in some that channeled more of a 70’s/boho vibe. The light fade and slight high waist of these were exactly what I was looking for.
