This season, there is one item that has made a comeback from the 70’s and it is flared pants! Flared pants can be characterized by having a tight and skinny fit through the leg until it becomes wider from the knee down, also known as bell-bottoms. We still love our skinny jeans and leggings but the time has come to switch up your style to flared-leg silhouettes. The whole point of flares is to create a long and lean silhouette but they are not easy to style. Flares and heels were made for each other. Flared pants look best with platforms and pumps. We have listed a few tips to help you style your flared pants the correct way:
- High–waisted pants are considered to start above your belly button. Wearing your flared pants high on your waist will help you show off those curves. Throw on a crop top and add some bangles to your outfit for more of a bohemian look. If you don’t want to wear your pants as high then opt for a pair that is considered mid rise. Mid-rise is considered to start above your hipbones. Keep into consideration the length of the pants though because flared pants were worn very high back in the days. So if you were flared pants lower, you can easily hem the bottom to fit your body appropriately.
- Picking the proper shirt is key when styling flared pants. In order to keep emphasis on your waist and thighs, it is important that you choose a shirt that is cropped or even a longer shirt tucked inside of your pants. Wearing a longer shirt will conceal your stomach area and may be more comfortable for you.
- Selecting the right heels for your flared pants is important too. You want to wear a pair of heels that are not too low or too high. You do not want to be tripping on your pants, so the bottom of the flared pants should skim the floor just enough for you to show off your heels or shoe choice. Remember that you should only be showing the tip of your shoe though, not the back. Back in the 1970’s, flared pants were worn with heels so if you decide to rock a pair yourself, you have to dress like you mean it, with a flare!
The best part of flared pants is that they can be worn casually with sandals or dressed up with heels or boots. Whether you want to pull off the bohemian, feminine, or edgy look, flared pants have are going to be your new best friend. Make sure to choose a style that you feel most comfortable to wear. These pants are sure to make your legs look miles long and will instantly add sophistication to any outfit.
