Flares Are the New Black

I’m guest posting over at Blonde Epidsodes today! Come on over and say hi!

So, seventies style is here and it’s here to stay. You won’t hear any complaining from me. After a few years of ignoring most pants and denim silhouettes save for skinnies, I’m embracing wide legs and flares. It’s time they get the attention they’re due! I’m particularly loving this menswear inspired look from The Row’s Pre Fall 2011 collection. It’s crazy sexy no? I can so see Bianca Jagger rockin’ it back in the day!

What about you lovelies? Are you ready to welcome flares into your wardrobe?

    I was looking at Gap’s Spring Lookbook at all the flares & ASOS’s 70s styles & must say that I’m excited about it! I think it’s going to be a fun look for this spring & summer. Bring on the flares!

    I’m not a big flare person but think they look cute on others. Thanks so much for guest posting today honey! I love your pics! Kori xoxo

    I had pants just like that in the seventies! One time I was wearing a pair and riding a bicycle and one of the pants legs got caught in the chain. It wasn’t too good for the pants or the chain. I looked good, though!

    Lovin’ all of these hip wide legged pants. I like my skinny jeans, but I am so happy to see this trend make a comeback. I love to wear my dress pants a bit… flowy…!!

  5. J says

    I am so PUMPED flares are back.

    Now, if only they’d make them for short girls so we don’t have to cut off 50% of the flare…

  6. Ashleigh says

    Yes! Welcome!! Although I never really considered them gone – a girl can only wear so many skinnies!!

    So bummed to miss IFB in person but excited for the live stream!

    I love flare jeans. The really big flares are my guilty pleasure, but I don’t wear them often unfortuantely! I think they somehow make me look taller for some reasone?! I’m loving these subtler ones though!

  8. Julia says

    I am so excited to change it up with some flares. I wore some hip hugger bell bottoms today and felt wildly fabulous. It’s probably because I’ve been wearing my skinnies for a lonnnng time now!

  9. Katy Mary says

    I love flares! So glad you featured these 🙂 I especially love the ones that are so flared the cover up your feet, even though it’s a shame to hide cute shoes haha. Have fun in NY!

  10. Melanie's Randomness says

    YEAH!!! I’m so happy they are back!! I’ll admit I’ve been rocking out in flares for a while. My body type is a lil weird so they always made my legs look fabulous. My thighs are big but my calves & shins are skin & bone not sure why no weight goes there but the flares even me out! Yeah I’ll be fashion forward…=P

    I was actually writing an article about this for my school’s newspaper today. 🙂 But I do think it’ll be nice to toss the skinnies aside for a season or too. Those Citizens are super cute!

  12. Shin says

    Flares are so flattering but I think I prefer in other fabrics instead of jeans though, like linen or cotton and high-waisted! 🙂 xoxoxoo

  13. Mary says

    Think that since I wore them the first time around (as in the 70’s…), I probably shouldn’t try it this time around. A little harder to pull off with a few too many decades on the bod–literally and figuratively:). Have fun with them.

  14. Maddy says

    I don’t think I can ever do flare again. Perhaps bootcut, but never wideleg or flare!!! (Says the girl that said the exact same thing about skinnies a few years ago…go figure!)

    • The BonBon Rose Girls says

      I feel ya on the flats. I’ll be wearing mine with heels for sure! How do you feel about wide legs. I bought a pair of Michael Kors bad boys that I need to bust out soon!

  15. Amy says

    Flares intimidate me. I love them on other {tall} people, but never on myself because I’m so short. Can’t wait to see an outfit post with you and the flares though.
