I will not be retiring my skinny jeans this spring, but I am excited to dabble in a new denim trend. The cropped flare is exactly what it sounds like, and it offers endless styling abilities. Think of this as a the new boyfriend jeans: cropped, a little relaxed, but with a twist. My reason for loving them is because they are perfect for petite frames. I will never be able to wear traditional flares, even the petite styles are overwhelming. These jeans give me the chance to rock a flare and still look proportional. I prefer this style in a lighter shade, like these from Alexander Wang for a more casual look. Come spring, I'll be pairing mine with a striped tee and loafers. Will you be trying this denim trend in 2016?
