Tied Cardi Layers

Normally when I wear something a little bulkier on top – like this tied cardigan with layered gingham button down, I would immediately default to my skinny jeans. But lately I’ve been trying to give my flares a little bit more love. (Besides, there the “it” jean of Fall, right?!) And I’m so glad I did for this look!

If you’re ready to ditch your skinnies (or at least try something new 😉 ), I highly suggest sticking with a pair of flares or bootcut jeans that are slim through the thigh. Just like here, the slimmer cut still works with bulkier sweaters for Fall and Winter! (All over bagginess can be hard to pull off without looking frumpy!)

    Hi Lauren,
    Ok, so it is OK to wear booties under flares. Thank you for clearing that up for me! I am fashion-ly challenged and trying to improve!
    ps- where did you get the bracelet?
