Weekend Wardrobe: Flannel + Flares

I HATE wearing jeans, mostly because I have such a hard time finding jeans that fit properly. I have been dying for a pair of high-waisted flares, but had already decided I probably wouldn't find any that fit my waist and butt at the same time, without major alterations.  I walked into H&M on a whim, saw these perfect flared jeans, and decided to try a few pairs on.  I was shocked when they fit perfectly and were also so comfortable!  I have found that usually when a store has jeans that are "high-waist" cut, they are just an inch or two above the regular cut and end up fitting across the middle of my stomach.  I want them to actually fit at the waist- and these do!  Even better the waist cinches in and isn't the same width as the hips like on SO many modern jeans today.  Oh and did I mention they are just $29.99?  If you are looking for new jeans, go try on a pair NOW!  I paired them with a buffalo plaid flannel top from Forever 21, which has a perfect cropped, flowy cut to compliment the jeans.  If you are still unsure about wearing flares- try a simple, relaxed v-neck tee or a cropped neutral sweater with them.  It will make the outfit look classic and chic, and less Brady Bunch.
