When the weather starts getting cooler, I want my jeans to cover my ankles and the tops I wear with them to be soft and warm. The ultimate outfit for accomplishing these two goals is a pair of high-waisted bell bottom (or flare) jeans and a cashmere (or similar) sweater.
The current jeans of my dreams in this category is this Khaite Reece Flare pair. The wash is perfection, as are the rise and the drape of the substantial flare. Also the back pocket placement, which in my opinion is extremely important when it comes to jeans, is just about right.
Add a fuzzy sweater and you’ve got your go-to look for fall 2018, whether it’s a casual work day or a chill weekend.
Pro tip: fall is the perfect time to wear flares, before the rain and snow is in full force. Snow and rain boots require a skinny or rolled up jean and are a situation to which flares to not lend themselves.
