The big trend in denim this fall is an ode to 70’s style with flares, flares, and more flares (think your grandmother’s Woodstock denim but with a modern twist).
Last Spring when the Fall RTW runway shows of designers like Tom Ford, Balmain, and Giambattista Valli all sported flared denim, we knew that it wasn’t long before flares were going to be styled in the windows of our favorite shops. Now that Fall is here, you can say au revoir to your denim cutoffs, and hello to flared denim.
If you’re still not convinced that you need to make closet space for a new pair of flares, let your favorite bloggers take on the flare trend convince you otherwise.
1. If you’re styling your flares for those warmer days, an easy tank and some sunnies are the only accessories you need. Do make sure that if you’re not planning on wearing heels that you find a length that’s perfect for you.
2. Do choose a slim fit flare, they’ll lengthen you legs and give you more options to pair with on top.
3. Don’t be afraid to dress up a casual tank and dark wash flares with some statement bling.
4. Go with a neutral color palette. By staying with army greens, greys, and faded denim, Michelle was able to give her outfit a casually distressed look.
5. Don’t be afraid to dress them up. If it’s casual Friday at the office, throw on a white sweater and a menswear blazer and you’re ready to take on the last day of the week.
6. We’re always fans of matching your blouse to your bag, and combined with a statement watch and faded flares, this look is one we wouldn’t mind stealing.
7. The Queen of striped tees, Mary Seng, shows us that black and white is still as chic as ever.
8. Add a bit of a rocker vibe by throwing on a leather jacket with your skinny black flares.
9. The best way to style flares for fall? Layering of course. This look is a great example of mixing and matching prints and textures for the autumn without the overall look being too overwhelming.
10. Throw that “you can’t wear white after Labor Day rule out the window,” and style white flares with your favorite striped blouse and army jacket or vest.
11. A suede camel color jacket makes this outfit pop, while the black flared trousers add a touch of sophistication.
12. If you’re looking for an easy airport outfit, this jet setting style is definitely for you. The effortless layering and statement scarf make it easy to take on or off layers.
13. The number one rule of dressing flares is the tried and true less is more motto. Since your pants will make the statement, choose a statement top and simple jewels and you’re good to go.
