Flared jeans – they’ve made fashion statements throughout the decades appearing everywhere from Woodstock to New York Fashion Week. The denim style took off in the 70′s with trendsetters like Farah Fawcett making them a signature look. And while the ladies certainly knew how to flaunt the flares, let’s not forget the men who made a splash in their wide-leg denim. Flashback to John Travolta werking it in Saturday Night Fever. This is one trend that comes around every few years – and is back in full effect for Fall 2012. So let’s take some style tips from a few of our favorite present day fashion icons:
Olivia Palermo is kicking off fall in flared jeans and camel tones. Get her look by pairing Juliette Brushed Twill Flares in Cinnamon with a beige blouse. A statement piece, like this Adrienne Landau fur scarf, adds an edgy twist to the neutral outfit.
Mix things up a la Jessica Alba by throwing on a pop of color with your denim. Slip into Humphrey Yale High Rise Flares and layer a bright green blazer over a nude silk cami. Platform heels are must-haves when it comes to flares so finish off the look with these killer Charlotte Olympia pumps.
With her minimalist style, Victoria Beckham can make a basic pair of blue jeans look ultra chic. Take a lesson from the diva/designer and pair Humphrey Vixen Flares with a flirty peplum tank and a chain shoulder bag. This Ferragamo option will do the trick!
