THE FLARE


OK, so obviously we love our skinny jeans and have no intention of abandoning them any time soon, but the newest fashion trend right now is the 70's style flared jean. This new breed of jean, although it is a throwback, is not synonymous to the bootcut jean of recent years past. Look for a jean that is tight through the hip and thigh and then flares extravagantly from the knee down. I've paired these here with a loose blouse, but just a simple not-too-long sweater would also do. Oh, how I'd die to steal a pair of these from my mom circa 35 years ago... but, alas she gave them all away. Still, I'm going to be scouring vintage and second hand shops on the off chance I may score a legit pair of 70's flare jeans.
