The Cropped Kick Flare Jeans Trend For Spring 2016 & How To Wear It
The ‘Kick Flare‘ (also known as “Cropped Flare‘) trend has hit the market again and they are bigger than ever. Just like the styles before with their initial release, there was hesitation to the cropped flare cut and whether it would gain momentum. But they have for the new season and no brand was left out on giving their own take on kick flares for Spring 2016.
The cropped flare is not just limited to an exaggerated cut and many brands have released jeans with different widths that give it a more modern and streamlined feel. For example there’s a cropped bootcut which is much slimmer, a slightly wider cropped straight leg, a flare that starts at the knee, a wide leg and more. There’s a style for everyone in many different lengths, you can choose a cropped flare which hits the ankles or mid calf, whichever you prefer.
Whether you chose to pair your cropped flares with sneakers, heels or sandals, they are jeans that are a great addition to your closet and are sure to become a staple piece that you’d want to bring out from time to time to spruce up your daily look. See how some style bloggers and celebrities have already worn them on the streets and check out some of the great kick flare options below, as well as more of a variety from stores like SHOPBOP and REVOLVE, so take your pick.

How To Wear Cropped Flares
If you are petite, I’d recommend a longer length cropped flare with heels and a slim leg opening like a bootcut. This will ensure that the jeans don’t make your legs look shorter as the heels will lengthen and the slimmer width of the denim wont overwhelm your figure either.
If you are tall, you are lucky and can get away with most cropped flare styles. You can wear a longer and slimmer length to show off your figure of you can do a more cropped length and a wider width at the leg opening, this will be really flattering to your long legs and will look extremely on trend too, like you just stepped off the catwalk or out of a magazine.
