It's official- low-rise flares are back this fall. And make no mistake about it- my 14 year-old self is rejoicing! To be honest, I never could pull off the boyfriend jean or the high-waisted pants, and after a weekend spent at Austin City Limits, I'm praying I'll never have to see the high-waisted-jean-shorts-with-a-bit-of-butt-peeking-out ever again. But what is universally flattering?! A flared leg. It hugs in the right places, giving your body the right amount of feminine contour.
This trend could not have come at a more opportune time. I'm in desperate need of pants. Currently, I own 1 pair of pants and subsist in leggings and tunics for winter. Obviously, I know this won't cut it during my first NYC winter. And all you men, don't assume this trend is off limits for you. Just take a page from one of my favorite movies, American Hustle, and rock them like Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale:
I kid, I kid! Now, in case you aren't as thrilled as I am to see this reinvented silhouette back in the spotlight, let's all be thankful for one thing- no velour tracksuits have been spotted just yet.
Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great weekend.
