The subtle shape of the flair


It’s hard to find a good high-waisted vintage jean. I only wear high-waisted jeans because I find them more flattering. I’m short, so they make my legs look longer. What makes this pair unique is the subtle shape of the flair, and the soft wash.

For me this outfit is the perfect example of a casual chic attire. A classic black blazer, blue jeans and heels. The high waist automatically creates the optical illusion of longer legs together with the subtle flair and the slingback kitten heels add just the right amount of elegance, femininity and a little extra height. The latter perfect for those of us who aren’t used to walking in 5 inch heels. Although I’m not quite sure this exact look would work for me (I’ve been wearing my skinny jeans religiously for the past 8 years), Sophie Buhai’s vintage pair of Levi’s jeans are definitely something to consider the next time I need a new pair of jeans.
