Afew weeks ago in this post I wrote about the 70’s inspired trend and in particular flare cut jeans and trousers. I looked at wide cut trousers and how to style them. This trend is still fairly new, though it has been tried before in recent fashion history but did not catch on. In fact, I remember about eight years ago when I was still living in Seattle, seeing flare jeans in the stores, and I even bought a pair at a store called Red Light District. And although I did wear them a few times, the trend just didn’t stick and I eventually sold them. Will this be season that the trend actually takes off?
And if it does, do you think bloggers and street style fashion will have a hand in this? I personally find it refreshing, though I still love my skinny jeans for showing off my boots and shoes, but I am totally in the market for a sexy pair of flares. Today we are looking at a pair of flare cut jeans. I love the way Helene of Fashion Over Reason styled her pair of flare jeans from Lucky Brand. The faux fur vintage coat and wide belt fit with the 7os era look, but the black bag and Helene’s swingy modern lob keep the look firmly planted in 2015. After all Helene is quite the fashionista and knows how to put a look together and would’t be caught dead looking like a Marcia Brady cast off. I currently do not own a pair wide legged, or flare cut jeans but this just may be my next purchase.To see more from Helene’s 70s inspired look head on over to Fashion Over Reason. And what do you think of flares? Would you wear flares? If so, would you wear high waisted flares or low waisted? And would you keep it to jeans only? Or would you consider wearing bell bottom pants as well? Image of Helene via Fashionoverreason.com
