How to wear cropped flare jeans
Not a Charlie Perfume ad minus the vitality but an excuse to show off my kick flare jeans. Engaging in a little DIY action over the Bank Holiday weekend, I took a pair of scissors and lopped a couple of inches off a pair of old Gap flared jeans. Et voila. Instant update. To be perfectly honest, I’ve resisted the kick flare/boot crop/whatever trend for quite sometime; when you’re tall, it just looks like your trousers don’t fit. Which is all a bit too ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin,’ for my liking. Anyhow. I’ve finally succumbed to ankle-flapping fashion – and can confirm it’s absolutely fine if you’re wearing ankle boots. In fact, I’m so taken with this look, I may move onto a more summery block heel soon. Topshop has a range of kick flare jeans (available HERE, and HERE), I’m also a fan of J.Crew jeans (demi-boot crop available HERE) which, like Topshop, come in tall and petite sizes. Or save yourself some money and chop the hem off a pair of old jeans. Make-do Style. I’m moving onto indigo next.
During the Q&A session at Bath in Fashion, I was asked by a gorgeous woman in the audience if it was still OK to wear a denim jacket. My answer was in the affirmative, of course. I’m still wearing mine and so is Iris Apfel. Denim like style, is ageless. Enough said.
Oh and the gorgeous, sky blue leather frame bag in the photo is by Ally Capellino, more on that coming soon.
