Wear It With Flare

April 23, 2015

After years of living in our skinnies, flare legged jeans are back with a vengeance. We have seen this coming for quite awhile, but the 70’s frenzy that swept the spring ’15 runways have solidified the trend and elevated the flare jean to “must have” status.

The key to wearing this iteration of the trend is polish. This time, rises are a little higher, and they are paired back to cleaner, more refined casual items.

There is nothing else that will make your legs look longer and leaner than a well fitted flare leg jean with worn with a heel, short of leg extention surgery. ( Yes, that’s a thing, and no, we don’t condone it!)

Tuck a soft easy shirt into a higher waisted jean. The monochromatic look adds to the illusion of length.

Head to toe white is crisp is and modern. Add chic and black and white elements to up your style game.

Keep it simple, and keep it crisp. We love the extra long shirttail in this half tuck!

Add a classic pea coat to look and show your stripes. The mariner tee is the perfect accent to these dark blue flares.

Send Up a Flare

October 8, 2014

Step away from those skinnies. There is a new silhouette in town, and it’s very flattering.

The recent runways were rife with 70’s references, and designers were inspired by the era creating homages to haute hippies and establishment types alike.

Flare legged silhouettes popped up across continents, elongating legs in a way those rolled to the ankle skinnies never could.

Derek Lam mixed his sleek khakis with a soft lilac leather jacket:

Paul and Joe cut their flares in a whimsical print for a sharply tailored take on the suit:

Acne made the look edgy, with a dare to bare it all vest over flared pants:
