When it comes to being fashion-forward, chic and beautiful all at once, there’s no one who does it better than Olivia Palermo. This socialite came out of no where with her great sense of style, and charming smile and took over front row seats at fashion week, and street style photographers’ memory. She always gives us multiple reasons to feature her and this time is no different. Olivia’s recently been rocking a new style of flared denims and we couldn’t help but take notice. These frayed flared jeans were first seen on her Instagram after which almost everyone around the fashion block has been talking about it. They’re a tricky pair of denims, but Ms Palermo has so effortlessly styled and carried them off. How can we not be in awe of her?

Olivia is often seen sporting flared denims bringing that chic ’70s vibe back into fashion. We can see why she loves these denims so much; they add height, accentuate curves and look classy no matter what they’re paired with. It could easily be one of the quickest way of looking chic and old school. Once again, let’s take cue from this style queen and learn how to ace the flared denims trend.

But First…Know Your Body Type:

Rectangle Shaped & Tall: Flared jeans look best on rectangular body shapes as their straight, lean and tall frame can carry the volume of the jeans.

Petite: Petite women look best in bootcuts because large flares or bell-bottoms tend to overwhelm smaller frames. The bootcut’s slight flare will also elongate the legs.

Apple Shaped: Women with this frame tend to look best in bootcut fits because a smaller flare will complement rather than overwhelm narrow hips. A large bell-bottom jean might cause a woman with narrow hips to look more like a triangle.

Pear Shaped: Women who carry their weight mostly in their hips, thighs, and rear look amazing in wider flares or bell-bottoms.

Hourglass Shaped: This cut was made for your figure, since you’ve got the curves on top to even out the flare on the bottom. Just make sure you choose a pair that cinches at the waist.
