Why She Wasn't Sold on Flares
"I never thought flares would look good on me—my thighs are more muscular, while my calves and ankles are really slim," says Gianni, a former athlete. "When I would wear skinny jeans, I'd try to balance my thighs by adding leg warmers."
Why She Loves Them Now
These stretch jeans fit comfortably over Gianni's thighs, and she loves the fact that she doesn't have to wear an extra accessory to camouflage her skinny lower legs. "The jeans do all the work!"
