33 Ways To Wear The Flare Leg Trend! As Seen On Spring/Summer 2015 RTW Runways
Flare legs have FLAIR! Just think about how they whip when you strut, while gently skimming your power heels of the day. It’s no wonder the fashion world is looking over our shoulders winking back at the 1970s as we draw the flare leg trend back into our closets.
The silhouette of flare leg pants and jumpsuits definitely have ‘come hither’ appeal, mimicking the contours of our body. Fitted at the waist and hip, and then loosely flared at the hemline, this cut is especially loved by ladies with curves – and for good reason.
Clothes are most flattering when they provide the illusion of balance to the natural shape of our bodies. Women with fuller hips benefit from a wider pant hemline, because the weight at the hip is equalized by the weight of a flared pant hemline. Skinny pants, on the other hand, have a tapered hemline, offering no visual balance to fuller hips.
Also, since the hemline of flare leg pants are generous in weight they look best paired with skinnier heels. That means you will want to avoid wearing your espadrilles and other wedged heels with flare leg pants. Too much weight on the lower half of your body will offset the balance of your overall silhouette. Flare legs also look best when they float atop high heels, so I recommend avoiding flats as well.
Now there are plenty of modern and refreshing ways to welcome your flirty flares back into your weekly rotation. For example, Peter Dundas of Emilio Pucci vividly adorned a white flare leg pantsuit and tamed it with an etched, low cut scoop neck top. He also color blocked a sheer aqua button up with a forest green boyfriend blazer and flare legs, made even more graceful with a thin scarf.
Balmain paired a striped bandeau with belted high-waist flare leg pants, perfect for a foxy evening. The collection also featured leather and sheer flare leg pants, plus jaw-dropping jumpsuits!
Here are my top 33 picks from Spring/Summer 2015 runways on how to wear flare leg pants. So tell me, which would you wear?
