Trend-Spotting: Flared Denim
Though we were just debating on Monday the validity of skinny jeans, check the latest ‘trend’ that’s on the horizon: Flared denim.
Like most things 70s (remember MK’s SS2011 RTW show?) flared denim is seeing a revival. From Claudia Schiffer and Holly Willoughby in London, to Lauren Conrad in L.A., it seems your favourite celebrities are stepping out of their skinnies and trying a more shapely denim on for size. A more comfortable alternative to skinny jeans, flared jeans are that easy-to-style pair of pants that will quickly become a go-to in your closet. They’re sophisticated and smart, and will add instant shape to your overall outfit style. While I personally prefer the flared leg in a dark denim, you can go retro with a lighter wash.
