work it wednesday: flared up!

One of the trend predictions I have for 2011 is the "modern hippie chic" - or the return of 70's flair. Including flare or bell-bottomed jeans. In modern and updated cuts and finishes of course.

Many of you haven't even jumped on the skinny jean band-wagon yet, so you are scratching your head saying, 'another jean trend?' and some of you love your skinnies so much you won't stray from them. But there is always room for a new trend... it's up to you if you want to jump on it or not.

I still love my skinnies (of course!) but I just snagged the vintage flare cut from the Gap on super sale and I love them! They will be making a debut on the blog in real life soon... but until then in true Work it Wednesday style, here's how to style up this new free-spirited trend!

Oh vintage patch pocket details... how I adore you!



I love this pair styled up with a super cozy sweater... mmmmm.

This outfit has a decidedly spring feel, I love it!


So will you take the flare plunge??

Love the flared jeans! So much more flattering on most people.

I already have! I purchased a pair from EmersonMade and I'm so excited to wear them more!

Love these outfits! I NEED the sandals from the last outfit-they remind me of the Seychelles I've been wanting for ever.

While I love the look of the flares, I don't think I will be jumping on the bandwagon. I feel they aren't right for my pear body shape. Maybe I will try some on to see.

Loving the Gap jeans in the 3rd outfit! I have these bookmarked for future purchase. :)

I don't think I would ever swear off skinny jeans or jegs, but I'm definitely down for a variety of cuts of denim in my closet. :)

Love the striped top! I'll only be purchasing some pieces, probably not whole looks...
