Ready to get groovy? The 70s are back and we are here for the revival. When it comes to trends, I’ve always said I’m a bit of a toe-dipper. Translation: I’m not going full out disco queen, but will I incorporate a subtle flare into my denim collection? You bet. Speaking of 70s, my 70-something year old dad emailed me an article the other day regarding the “out” status of skinny jeans (insert tear). If there was ever a time to try a new silhouette, it’s now.
I recently discovered a new-to-me denim brand, Rolla. The price point is on point and the fit is amazing. Similar to Levi’s they don’t have much elastic in their fabric, but they form to your body after a few squats.
I am 5’4″ and most flares tend to run long. I personally think flares look best with a bit of a heel so they don’t drag on the ground. Also worth noting, platform shoes are also back….. just sayin’. Another on-trend shoe option is the clog which naturally has some lift and gives off a more casual vibe.
Pair your flare jeans with a more tailored top or cropped sweater to elongate the legs and create balance. Flares are voluminous so keep the top half slimmer and sub-dued to let the bottom half do the shining.
