My flare pant obsession

For the love of…

Flare Pants

I’ve had a bit of an obsession with flares since I was in my teens, purchasing my first pair from Target to wear to a Saturday afternoon roller skating disco. To this day, they are the coolest pants I’ve ever owned. Such a comfortable and flattering fit – plus they are perfect for the roller skating wannabe.

This fashion piece is doing the rounds again – isn’t it funny how we go through life seeing the same styles come back in fash-hun? I’ve become fixated on watching the flare pant grace the store hangers, maybe because it makes me feel all nostalgic from my flares and platforms days.

Last winter, my baby belly didn’t allow me to go beyond $12 Kmart maternity pants so this winter has made for the perfect excuse to go nuts on more pants, flare pants to be exact.



My absolute favourites are the high wasted, slack fit with an exaggerated bell bottom. What I love most about the flare style pant is the are the perfect that helps accentuate a curvy silhouette.

If you haven’t already channelled your 70s vibe and brought out the bohemian babe in you, thenĀ get cracking on these flares. One of the few cool things about ageing is getting to see fashion come back to life after years on pause.. x
