In keeping with my recent confessions about a certain little shopping “habit,” it will come as no surprise that I’ve been working on a wardrobe “purge” for the past couple of weeks…gotta make room for all those new fall additions, right?! 😉
My latest focus of attention happened to be my collection of jeans. That I own virtually no other kind of trouser was really not news to me – I’m generally either very casual in denims, or “dressed up” in a dress or skirt! – but I was sort of taken aback by the fact that almost all of my jeans are of the skinny variety!!
You see, for as long as I can remember, I’ve nurtured a love affair with flares…to me, they seem somehow more sophisticated, and more daring, than your average pair of skinnies.
While jeans that tuck neatly into tall boots, or hover snuggly above the ankles, are wonderful support players when a look is all about the footwear…denims (or any pants) that flare?? Well!! They kind of make a statement all on their own!!
And even though my jeans today fall into the slightly more subtle “boot-cut” category, I have to say that the wonderful fashion “flare” I crave was most definitely there!!
