The cropped flare is a style that I have been flirting with for some time now. It started with thinking about it, kind of toying with the idea and through baby steps incorporating it into my wardrobe. And now, you guessed it, I’m obsessed. At first glance, the cropped flare is not flattering, not easy to wear, and not approachable. Oddly enough, for all of those reasons and more, I love this silhouette. The ultra ’70s vibe makes me want to wear a flower crown and skip class (err… work?). Sans flower crown I’ve settled for this pretty fabulous suede fringe clutch. With its exaggerated-floor-dusting length, this bad boy will be getting a lot of use this spring.
I’ve paired the elusive cropped flare with a drumroll please…. crop top! Ahhh the power of the crop top, this trend which is quite literally still everywhere is seriously proving its worth through its staying power. Not only is the crop top still relevant, it still feels fresh and – dare I say – cool.
Have a cool Wednesday, you guys!
