It’s no news that flared pants are having a major fashion moment and that they are one of the most talked about trend right now. It’s right in the centre of the 70’s comeback for Spring and the first rule is to wear with high heels to create that leg lengthening effect and to offset the wide legs.
I checked out the Resort 2011 collections and found many interpretations of this trend and plenty ways of wearing the flared pants.
Starting with Celine, typically minimal yet utterly chic styling, particularly love the sleek jumpsuit version.
Emilio Pucci really did make the 70’s come back, with the printed blouses and fringed jackets.
Monique Lhuillier totally takes the cake, there is a sleek sophistication and elegance in her take of this trend. The pussy-bow blouses scream ladylike chic; there’s something for the not too serious days, work and the stylish evening event. Lhuillier gets my gold star.
Viktor & Rolf, Sonia Rykiel, Rebecca Taylor and Tracy Reese also give great ideas for styling the pants. Rebecca Taylor does the classic casual look with black flared jeans, a floral blouse and wedges, totally screams Spring.
