If there’s one denim style that’s ramping up to be essential among the fashion-and-celeb crowd, I bet it would be flare jeans. The retro silhouette had a strong presence on the S/S 20 runways thanks to brands like Celine and Michael Kors, and style setters have continued adding them into their rotations for months now. Naturally, one of my chic friends has taken notice and is interested in testing out flares in her day-to-day this spring and summer.

While I directed her to this piece on some of the key cuts to try on, she was also curious about which items pair well with the jeans. So I sent her a few street style snaps showcasing some of my favorite outfits with flares. The common thread? They all featured fresh and trendsetting basics to complement that statement-making nature of the jeans. If you too are all about flare jeans right now and on the hunt for the simple pieces to wear with them, keep scrolling to uncover the basics I think work flawlessly with the It denim silhouette of the moment.

A staple piece like a white tank works with just about anything but especially flare jeans to balance out the somewhat bold aspect of the denim silhouette. Try a tank on its own when it’s warmer or as a base layer with a suede jacket like Kate Bosworth is wearing here.

The tailoring trend is still going strong. And nothing adds instant sophistication to a denim ‘fit (including flares) more than a modern blazer.

Okay, a bold printed blouse like this one with the extra-long ties isn’t necessarily a “basic,” but it could be considered a next-level basic this season. Because in reality, these eye-catching patterned tops are quite versatile and look A+ with jeans—cropped flares included.

A trench coat—particularly the reimagined styles featuring asymmetrical and larger-than-life designs—teams flawlessly with a plethora of casual and formal ensembles, including this one with the white tee, flares, and booties.

Similar to the tank above, a layering turtleneck or mock-neck knit is also an essential to keep in your arsenal to pair with a range of items. This ensemble is easy and quite forward with the cropped shirt, blazer, darker flares, and boots.

Add that extra layer of “cool” to a flare-denim outfit with a leather jacket in a moto, blazer, or shirt silhouette for a current vibe.
