trend of the week: 70’s style flares. ive been talking about flares since i started my blog, and i guess it’s finally safe to say that 70s style flares, from high waisted, to unhemmed bottoms, to trouser style, are quickly becoming the pant trend of the season. Flares are great because they can lengthen your legs and make you look skinnier, if you wear them right. High waisted ones can make your butt look amazing. In high waisted and big bells they have to touch the ground…. you don’t want to look like you’re preparing for a flood with high-waters. that will completely erase any cool factor you might be trying to achieve. unless they are the skinny tulip flare… which in that case gracefully sitting on your shoe is totally acceptable.
