If you’ve got a flair for fashion, you probably already know that flares are big for Fall 2015. Silhouettes of trousers and jeans are showing that tapered look with skinny tops and wider bottoms. The look is flattering, but without the right shoes, it’s easy for an outfit with flares to fail.
But not to worry! Choosing one of these shoe styles will have you looking fashionable in this season’s flared looks.
With their denim panels, these lace-up wedges look super cute with flared jeans. The stacked wedge heel provides the perfect lift to complement a flare, and the lace-inspired cutouts along the peep toe look sweet when your shoes peek out from beneath the hemline as you walk.
A simple, pointed toe pump with a stiletto heel makes the perfect companion to tailored flared trousers. The defined shape of the toe holds its own against the over sized look of the hemline. These pumps come in four colors, so there’s certain to be a pair to go with any pair of flares.
The elasticated panels on the sides of these ankle booties provide a comfortable, yet slim fit that won’t look bulky beneath flares. The cognac option looks great with denim, and the grey is a chic pairing for black and winter white wide leg casual pants.
Clogs were a common companion for flares back in the 70s, but that look can be a bit too much like a costume in 2015. These wedges are reminiscent of clogs but distinctly modern with their ankle straps and open toes, so they work with today’s flared jeans and trousers perfectly. The platform wedges come in three go-with-everything shades for easy mixing and matching.
If you’re on the petite side, these wedges will help you skip shortening your flared jeans and pants. The 4.5-inch wedge heel and 1-inch platform will give you the height you need to keep the hem off the ground. Plus, the sued texture instantly adds interest to any ensemble. Try them in red to bring a pop of color to what you’re wearing or go for the black or tobacco for a more neutral finish for your flares.
As comfy as a sneaker, as cute as a boot, these lace-up wedges are great for pairing with casual flares. Like the Ladarius, these booties give you the benefits of a faux suede finish. Choose these for days when you want to be able to walk across town in your flares comfortably and stylishly.
On Indian summer days when the weather is warm, you can slip these caged sandals on with your flairs for the perfect summer-meets-winter look. The stacked heel is weighty enough to balance the wide hemline, and these sandals come in three neutral hues for options to go with jeans and pants of all colors.
Any of these shoes will be a great match for flared denim or trousers. Check out the pairs you like best and get ready to wear flare with flair!
