Can older women wear cropped flared jeans? For me personally, I feel women of any age can indulge in trends, we can add our own flare and make it work! Today I am going to style these cute ankle flared jeans, but put my own twist on the trend!
I told you girls Monday that I would be having a special Friday! I have been friends with Susanne from Thompson Hill Blog for a while now and grown to love her to pieces. Her style is casual chic, she gets “Best in Workwear” from me, and her recipes are to die for! We are teaming up today on both our blogs and I think you girls will love her style. Be sure to check her out here and I know you will love her just as much as me!
Styling ankle flared jeans is easier than we think. When we try jeans on in the dressing room, normally we don’t have any shoes on and we are making sure they look ok and they fit correctly. Once we get them home and try them on, we suddenly might not be in love with them as much as we were in the store. We may try them on with booties since that is the style right now, but we look at them on us and think we look funny, weird, or we don’t have the right body shape to pull this trend off. Wrong!
Whether you wear it with pumps, booties, or sneakers…you can make these work. Remember we are our worse critic! If you are still uneasy, try styling them the way I have today. We are accustomed to ankle pants with heels, so this is a baby step into trying this trend. See these ideas below! Step out of your comfort zone and get wild LOL!!

I decided to style these jeans with open-toed booties and an apricot open front blazer. I found this blazer on Amazon and was very surprised at how nice it was. It hits right below the hips, fully lined, has pockets, and also comes in black. You can roll the sleeves up or down and it looks great with jeans, dress pants, or pair it with a dress. There are so many ways to wear a blazer and the longer blazers are trending this Fall!
The jeans are from Old Navy with a ragged ankle hem, I am wearing a size 8 in regular length. I am 5’7″, so these would be a little longer, hitting right above your boot if you are shorter. These would also look cute with knee-high boots underneath when it gets cooler. Plus, Old Navy is having a Storewide Sale right now – up to 50% off! See the Sale HERE.
The block styled booties I am wearing are from last year, but Target has some that are almost identical here. I am really loving the open-toed style of booties this year, they are perfect for styling dresses and wearing with your workwear. Which style do you girls prefer better, open-toed or closed-toed?
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and don’t forget to stop by and see what Susanne is wearing! I have the privilege of babysitting Brooklyn today, so I am sure I will be busy all day! I am still working on organizing the attic and with that, I now have a TON of things I need to donate, give away or have a big yard sale – one way or another we have to ultimately clean out the garage again. I am cleaning a mess and making a mess…Sighhh!! I hope you girls have a great weekend and do not attempt to clean out your attic HA!
