Cropped Flares

Hello, 2016… So very nice to meet you!

Let’s be friends, OK?!

Friends let friends just be themselves — even when testing the turbulent fashion trend waters.

I’m not one for resolutions, but this year I’m hoping to make a bigger effort to wear the things that make me happy even if they’re a bit sartorially risqué for my region and/or lifestyle. I was all on board with flare pants/jeans last year when the 70’s inspired style made it’s big comeback. Some of you loved them, others, well… not so much.

More recently, I’ve been seeing a cropped flare style slowly creep into runway presentations and fashion editorials and I’m not gonna lie — I sort of love them. Crops have been traditionally associated with warmer weather wardrobes, but I adore the way the most recent iteration of these pants has been styled with winter appropriate layers and boots. Sometimes, it’s nice to see a fresh silhouette on the scene after so many years of skinny dominated pants.

With trendier pieces like these cropped flares, a great way to tone down the style is by keeping the rest of the outfit relatively classic in a neutral or monochrome palette. Just like blogger VICTORIA TORNEGREN‘s look, all black is never a bad idea!

The oversized proportions on her sweater also balance out the flare of the pant and keep the look modern and minimalist vs. what could easily become a costumey retro vibe. Not exactly what we’re going for here…
