Flares and boot cut jeans are both flattering in their own unique ways, but both might not be equally flattering to you. Find out what jean is more flattering between flares and boot cut with help from a lifestyle expert and passionate fashionista in this free video clip.
I’m Kara Miller of TheLifestylista.com, and I’m here at Denim Revival. Today, we’re going to be talking about what jean is more flattering: Flares, or a boot cut? How to define a flare or a bell bottom? It’s really tight – not overly tight, but it’s tight at the rear and down the thighs, tapers into the knee, and then bang! You’ve got this flare, this bell bottom. Now, on average, you’re talking about this circumference being, like 21 to 29 inches. It tends to be low-rise, too. When we get over to the boot cut, now boot cuts actually are a range of things. So, boot cuts could be low-rise, they could be mid-rise, they could be slim in the behind and the thighs, or they actually could be quite relaxed in fit. And, they don’t taper so much into the knee, and then they don’t pack such a punch in the flare department. So, they can be anything from 17 inches in circumference right up to 20. Now, in terms of what is flattering, oh my goodness, I’m going to tell you that flares – they’re both flattering, okay? But, they’re very, very, very similar. But, I want to talk about flares because when you’re curvy, what flares do to you is balance you. And so, you actually think you look amazing, because you do! When you lack curves and you think, “My gosh, you know, I just don’t really have hips!” You create the illusion of having wider hips when you use this. How it works, none of us know. We need to ask the scientists. I’m Kara Miller, and you have been watching what kind of jeans are more flattering: Flares or a boot cut? Thanks for watching.
