PIECES OF FLARE

This spring, slip out of your skinny jeans and find something fresh in flared denim. Flared denim has its roots in the navy when 19th century officers began to wear pants that were more bell-bottomed than not and gained popularity where it sprung up in the midst of the 1960’s where this cut became so iconic. Over the next few decades, the bell-bottom trend has smartened up into its “flare” form that it is worn today.

It might be hard to stray from your skinny jeans but there’s a reason why flared denim keeps popping up every spring: flared denim are flattering and when fitted to the knee, they elongate the leg. Paired with a cute silk button-up and blazer and you have a look that is better than retro, but a modern take on a classic.
