Flare Up

I'm not talking about anything crazy except the flare leg trend I'm seeing for Spring 2011!  In the early 90's I had a serious love affair with flared leg pants and I rocked the hell out of them until wearing them became fashion suicide (um, yes really). As we all know, fashion trends are like volcanoes...they erupt like crazy and then they go dormant for a decade until it's time to break out the red hot look again. I've highlighted the denim flare legs in this post....enjoy!

I heart flared leg pants but I am too short to pull them off {sigh!}

i don't know if i'm ready for flare to be back just yet... i think i'll stick with skinny for a while!

I love it and think it's so much more flattering on women than the skinny jean!

Oh the lovely flare pants! I too rawked them like no-bodies-business back in the day. I chuckle every time I see them these days. I need to get a pair and rawk them all over again!

Personally, for me, because I am quite thin, I prefer skinny jeans. They make me feel more confident than a pair of flared jeans. I'm not particularity a fan of any of these looks, but some people pull them off really well.

I am excited! I have a black pair of high-waisted flares that I have been wanting to drag out of the closet again (I am not sure they are flattering but for some reason, I don't care) and now I think I will!

Do for me, I love this trend, and always have, even if I haven't been wearing it for a while. It really suits my body type for some reason, so its is really a do for me all the time.

Love the pics you picked out, by the way! :)
