1 With Boots, Ankle Boots, Heels or Flats
You can wear flared jeans with boots, ankle boots, heels or flats. But there’re some basic rules to remember here. Riding boots aren’t going to work out well unless you wear your flared jeans over them. In fact that’s the case for most boots. Ankle boots and flats can be pulled off without a hitch. With heels, you want to wear a flared jean that has a longer hem line so they end at the correct length.
2 With a Solid Button up
Flared jeans are going to be attention grabbing. Since they’re making their re-entrance into the fashion world, they’re going to be noticeable. Because of this, it can be best to keep it simple on top. A solid button up can work great. Tucking it in gives you a streamlined look where all the emphasis is on the shape of your jeans.
3 With a Turtleneck

The iconic pictures of Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn wearing black turtlenecks have always made me associate this look with one of elegance and grace. And the black turtleneck pairs especially well with flared jeans. It’s how both Jackie O and Audrey Hepburn often wore theirs since flared jeans were trendy during their iconic fashion days.
