How to Wear Flare Pants

  1. Nancy B says:

    Thank you, Kelly for this post! As a fellow petite at 5’3” I get so much out of your fashion advice. Love the way you take the time to break it all down on how to style for us shorter ladies. I’m 62, so closer to your mom-in-laws age but between the both of you I get much inspiration!

    • Hi Nancy, I am so glad you find my posts helpful and inspirational! Thanks so much for stopping by today and sharing your thoughts. Have a great long weekend! xo Kelly

      What do you expect you looked very cute in your flare petites. Those are some of the only pants that are flared that I can wear. I’m older than you, but he flared Levi’s that we used to wear back in the day required high heels under them to look like anything at all. So that ship has sailed for me. Thank you very much for your sensible, classic advice.

    I have enjoyed today’s posts–both of them. The advice about how to avoid looking older is great.
    I may have to break out a belt for the first time in a long time; as my waist has thickened over the years my courage to wear a belt has waned but I can see the value of wearing a belt at my age. I am 5’3″ and find proportions and new fashion trends a challenge. I like the ideas for styling these pants. I could wear them if I considered my proportions and the idea of wearing something that is already comfortable to me is genius. Thanks for your time and encouragement, ladies.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Mary. I am really happy you found this post informative and helpful. New trends can be really challenging, especially for petites, since there are so many things we are told “won’t work” on us. But if a trend or style is interesting to you and you want to try it out, I say go for it! There are zero reasons you can’t wear what you like. Have a great day! xo Kelly

    I am also a petite and yes, I like the pants because I think they make me feel very comfortable not tight but look dressy. I have a hard time finding tea
    shirts. With sleeves I don’t like short sleeves. I don’t like all the blouses that are out this summer all the dresses. It’s not that warm here in Massachusetts. Our summers are very shot. Thank you again. Nice post.

    At 5’2”, I often buy cropped jeans/pants, knowing they will be full length on me. I understand I am not getting the full experience, so your advice to get the petite size is helpful. Your fashion style is inspiring! Thanks!
