5 Ways To Style Flare Pants

August 7, 2014

Flared trousers are back in a big way. Taking inspiration from 1970s bombshell’s such as Farah Fawcett, Brigitte Bardot and almost every other woman in between, put away those skinny jeans and embrace the flare. Not only does this style elongate the leg, but hides any problem areas in the thighs, tummy and even cankles. Below are just a few different ways to style your own pair of flares.


For a casual look, pair flared trousers with a flowy, loose blouse. Not only is this look perfect for day or night, but it is also seriously on trend. Choose a blouse which is flattering on your body type, or even a fun print to make that outfit pop.

Cropped top

In order to give the entire outfit a bit of shape, wear your flares with a cropped top. Not only will this give a peek of skin at the midriff, but create the illusion of curves into this straight-cut outfit. Choose a pair of high-waisted pants if you don’t want your midriff popping out.


Accessorise your outfit with a cute belt, which will create the illusion of a subtle waistline. Look out for belts which are solid, leather and can be worn with a variety of other outfits.

Fitted blazer

For a chic work-look, choose a pair of flared trousers which are a neutral tone such as dark brown and black. On the upper half of the body, finish the outfit off with a cute blouse and fitted blazer. The blazer will not only cinch in the waist, but create a nice pear-shape.

High heels

If you are trying to style super-long flares, it is best to wear some high (but wearable) heels to finish off the outfit. Choose a pair of chic sandal-platforms which are inspired by the 1970’s, and will really make your legs look long and lean.
