WHY YOU NEED A PAIR OF J BRAND FLARE JEANS

Why you need a pair of J Brand flare jeans

At 1m 72cm (5ft8″) I’m pretty average in height yet when I wear my J Brand Babe flares I feel positively Amazonian! This pair of jeans is my go-to when I don’t know what to wear or am feeling frumpy because no matter what else I add to the outfit I inevitably feel amazing. To be precise, like a supermodel – Yes they are that powerful!

Dark denim is always best to hide any lumpy bits but it’s the “skinny flare” that’s the true secret to legs for days & a tight butt. They’re incredibly tight, somehow magically pushing my butt up & in, yet as comfy as leggingsĀ  – well what I imagine leggings are like since I never wear them eek – Then from the knee they make a full on flare to the floor. You’ll notice the jeans are super long, designed to deliberately hide your heels tricking the eye into believing you’re far taller than you actually are. You can see in my shots how brilliantly this works, bloody genius if you ask me. Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of stilettos, a wedge or block heel looks just as sexy. See this outfit & also this one in my MJ wedge shoes.

Now, I’ve worn flares since… well since the 70’s actually but none compare in comfort or fit to J Brand. And they offer more than just the Babe style I’m wearing today. There’s Love Story, Maria, Martini & my other favourite Bette. Yes premium denim is expensive if you’re used to buying your jeans say, from Topshop for example. However if like me you wear jeans to most occasions then cost per wear makes them excellent value. Imagine them with a sparkly top & you’re out on a date, a cashmere jumper & you’re out to lunch, a black blazer for a casual meeting, a slogan T-shirt & leather jacket for drinks with the girls. I could go on with infinite combinations off the top of my head because I’ve worn them with every conceivable combination, even a dress! Plus unlike many dark denim jeans this pair of mine haven’t faded a jot, that’s quality material for you. When you consider I’ve been wearing them regularly for about 6 years it’s pretty impressive right?

How to wear a hat for every day

Hats disguise all manner of issues when it comes to my hair VS the weather. Today it was that bastard wind causing havoc! This fabulous Trilby was another TkMaxx bargain I bought a few years ago. The hats are always pretty good there particularly for summer holidays, have a look at this wide-brimmed beauty I bought last year for Italy (N.B Remember to check Mens too) That’s not to say hats are only for holidays, try wearing one for every day stuff as I have today & here. If you’re not sure what to do with your hair simply tuck it behind your ears & leave it down. Alternatively a basic ponytail always looks chic otherwise do what I’ve done & loop your ponytail through the band creating a loose chignon at your nape. You may feel a little silly wearing a hat at first but trust me it’s a great look, be brave, go for it!

    The average woman is 5’4″ and the average man 5’9″. Your height is not average. You are tall.

    Looking so cool in your flares Michelle! You know that J Brand is my UBER favourite denim brand? I’m totally addicted to it! They make the hottest jeans out there! And they (obviously – just look at you!) fit perfectly. ā¤ļø xx Abby

    Wow, you look fabulous, as always! I’m a little afraid of these jeans, I’ve worn skinny jeans for so long now! I’m a titchy 5ft 3 (5ft 2 1/2 – but I round up on my height, down on my weight, which evens it all out). I might order a pair tho’ as I love J Brand jeans and I especially love the idea of legs for days.

      Heeheehee I love it, round up & round down! Careful you don’t get the two mixed up šŸ˜‰
      My advice for you would be to have the jeans hemmed professionally (unless you can sew well) & remember to wear heels when measuring the length. These flares do look amazing on petite women, YOU WILL LOVE THEM.

    What a great preppy boohoo chique look! Those trousers look really stunning! I am 1.74 but I have a bit x legs. And then a flared jeans looks horrible!

      Really Nancy even with heels? What about a loose fit instead? Have a look at this cut for example-they’re straight at the top instead of skinny & they’re mid-rise. Ignore that the model is wearing trainers, flats ruin the line. Wish I could style you up in flares to show you how fab you’d look xx

    Ah, this reminds me of my Paige dark blue flared jeans. Which I bought two years ago and they were very HOT then. (Very good jeans.) So how come you already had them six years ago? You trend setter. They look fab on you. And I totally agree, these expensive jeans are worth their money. I have J.Brand jeans too and they are soo good.
    By the way, I am 175cm and that converts to 5.74.

      Ah yes Paige denim is lovely too, I’m so with you there. I have been wearing flares consistently since I was a child actually Greetje, always been a huge fan. They’re 100 times better since the advent of elastane of course. Indeed now they are comfortable as well as smokin’ hot! šŸ˜‰
      I’m not sure about this height conversion though. As I only know metric I used a converter chart to show the feet in brackets for those who use imperial. See the chart here Greetje – please tell me if it is wrong xx

        I think your chart is wrong. But I cannot be sure of course.

          Ah yes it could be as I don’t actually know the conversion.
