Fashions Fade, Style Is Eternal

Get Some Flare

In Uncategorized on February 16, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Yes, skinny jeans are still in fashion and they are not going anywhere anytime soon.  But while that’s a fact, flared jeans and flared trousers are back for both men and women as a spring 2011 fashion trend.  Ladies should embrace this leg-lengthening and hip whittling trend.

Bell bottoms and flared jeans and pants for women in 2011 are all about a neo-1970s style.  Here are a few tips on how to wear them:

  • A hem that is at least as wide as your foot
  • Loose at the knee as opposed to the 1990s interpretation where they are cut very slim down the thigh and knee, flaring out from below the knee cap.
  • Pair with tops (baggy blouse, simple tee or fine knit) tucked into the waist to accentuate the waistline further. The Ballet-inspired Body is back as part of the Ballerina trend and emphasises a very 70s silhouette tucked into flared trousers.
  • Heels!  The season’s 70s revival sees wedges and platforms, which elongates the leg even more.
