Flares: Don’t Call It a Comeback

June 25, 2015
Celebs in Flares

Fashion trends come and fashion trends go. This past spring, we saw flares come back in a big way. Everywhere we looked—from celebs to our favorite fashion bloggers—everyone was sporting this throwback vintage look. While they seem fresh and new again, flare jeans have actually been around for decades.

Back in the ‘70s, flares (aka “bell-bottoms”) were all the rage. Who can forget how beautifully Farrah Fawcett used to rock them? Then we saw a resurgence of the jeans in the '90s (flare jeans and floral tops were totally our jam).

70s Flares

The biggest struggle with flares is finding a pair without having to tailor them for the perfect length (Protip: your flares should just barely graze the floor). But brands are taking notice and making it easy for women to shop. Take 7 For All Mankind. They recently announced plans to release a line targeting women of “average” height. Whether or not you have to make the extra investment to get them tailored, we think they’re worth it. After all, it doesn’t look like they’ll be going away anytime soon.

It may be hard to break away from those skinnies, but we know there’s room in your wardrobe for both. So, give this retro look a try if you haven’t already.
