Just when we thought the rivalry between the skinny and the flare was over, the 70's inspired trend is back for Fall 2010. I remember a couple of years ago when the flare was in; I had a pair in a dark wash when I was like 17. Trends always come back, it makes me second guess myself when I put old clothes in bags for my mom to give away. Oh well, gives me an excuse to go on the search for the perfect pair! Celebrities have been spotted rocking the trend on the streets in different styles, such as the loose boyfriend fit on Rachel Bilson and Katie Holmes' wide bell bottoms. Follow these tips to wear flares properly:
- If you have a large chest, please avoid high-waisted styles AT ALL costs; it really isn't flattering.
- Tuck in a loose top or wear a fitted leotard or tank.
- Flares look best with some height, so wear a pair of stacked heels or platform wedges to elongate your legs.
- Slide a belt through the loops and accesorize accordingly (:
P.S. Don't forget about your skinnys; they're a staple piece here to stay! -XO andrea
