True Story: I Found the BEST Cropped Denim Flares

Welcome to the first edition of a new series in which I'll test out a variety of items from different brands that you want to know about. I'll give you my honest take in my quest to find the best of the best for you, dear reader. WWW Reviews will encompass everything from trends to staple items to fashion utility items and more—basically anything and everything a fashion girl would want to know about. First up: cropped denim flares. 

It's a bit of an oxymoron that the breakout star denim trend of 2016 also happens to be the reigning most polarizing denim trend. But I can't say it's surprising, as it's not the first time that the world has been divided over denim styles. To name a few, skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, and low-rise jeans have all been the subject of much debate in the past and present. Why? Everyone wears jeans. They're a universal staple every season, so it comes as no surprise that everyone has a vested interest.

The common argument when it comes to cropped flares is that they're not flattering, but based on my research, I would have to beg to differ. Every denim brand is selling their take on the trend right now, making the task of finding the right pair a bit overwhelming, so I did my due diligence and chose eight pairs of cropped denim flares from top brands. You truly can't go wrong with any one of these pairs, but some are simply better than others for different reasons. So depending on what's most important to you in a pair of jeans, one of the below options could be perfect for you.

That said, my search proved fruitful, as all of the zipping and buttoning lead me to find one pair in particular that truly takes the cake and receives a perfect score in my book. Keep scrolling to read my honest reviews of the cropped-flare offerings from some of your favorite brands, and shop them all for your own collection.
