Even though I was planning to share this outfit while I was still on vacation in sunny (actually cloudy) Miami, I let myself to take a little break from my laptop and observe the beauty around us. I guess we all need that from time to time, right? So, today’s look is all about flared pants. Can you imagine the last time I wore these was about six years ago? Just recently, I found my first bootcut jeans by J.Brand in the very far corner of my closet. Obviously, I couldn’t fit in, so I headed to Aritzia in the Eaton Center to see if they had some on sale. I was lucky to get these beautiful black corduroy pants for only 40 $, which totally made my day.
You probably already know that the ’70s was a huge trend last fall, and that it stayed strong in spring and summer 2016 runways (with the accent on suede and mixed prints). So, we better get those suede jackets and flared pants ready, because this trend doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. You know, there are quite a few things I love about ‘7os fashion: those peasant blouses and floral maxi dresses, ponchos, ripped jeans. (By the way, did you know that it was during 70s that ripped jeans became an object of desire for fashionistas, rather than the sign of over-wearing denim and being poor?). If you are not into the hippie vibe yet, you can still rock the ’70s trend by getting a bell-bottom or flared pants, like I did.
If you are petite like me, trust me, they are not just a trendy piece. A pair of flares will make your legs appear longer, if you choose a high-waisted pair, hemmed to about 1/4 inch off the floor and make sure to tuck in your shirt or sweater to emphasize your waist.
