Today just felt like the kind of day for a flared jean and some heels. I bought the jeans from Jaeger Boutique in the sale a couple of summers ago. They are high waisted and very supportive – in fact I used not to be able to wear them as they made me feel faint, which wasn’t really very good at all. They are OK now though and having done a long run today, I felt the need for clothing which would hold me upright and which would prevent me from collapsing like a jelly on the floor. They did the trick up until 7.45pm and then I gave up on clothes in favour of my Onesie.
Being of the chilly persuasion, I also wore a Cos chunky roll neck and my Primark fur gilet which is great for the school run and nipping in and out of the car. I find that if my torso is warm, I can cope without wearing sleeves and the lack of fuss and flapping of a longer coat is always welcome!
These red patent Kurt Geiger shoes, which were also a sale purchase a while ago now, made a nice change to boots and their chunky heel works with a flared jean, more so than a thinner, more delicate heel – especially in the day time.
As much as skinny jeans have a big role to play in my life, some days only a flared jean will do and there’s no denying that their shape definitely makes you feel more elegant and elongated. I suspect that over the next few seasons we’re going to see more of them making an appearance so get ready for them….the bootcuts will be back!
