Ways to wear Cropped Flares

Longer than a culotte and shorter than your standard trouser, this fresh new cut is a daring trend, but once mastered can add a whole new dimension to your wardrobe. A mastery of proportion building is extremely crucial. First and foremost select a perfect length for your height. Good cropped flares must be not too long, and not too short; just right.

Wearing them is a question of proportions - cropped flares mean you should stay away from wearing a very cropped jacket or anything cropped on top, also avoid anything mid-length too. Stick to sleek shapes, wear something either fitted to the waist, or to the top of the thigh - try shirts, fine knit jumpers or polo necks, worn with a peacoat, blazer or an oversized coat.

What shoes to wear? There are many options depending on what look you would like to create. Sneaker and flat shoes will keep it Seventies-cool, for example. I prefer loafers and white converse for the autumnal months and svelte ankle boots for winter.  A sling-back sandal or mule are great for spring and summer . Something that ties around the ankles will look fabulous. The cropped flares also look chic with a pair of court shoes for evenings. Bulky styles of shoe won't work so well. This is a neat silhouette, so it is essential to keep it that way.
