FLAIR FOR FLARES


FLARES

Whether it’s couture, high end or high street, wherever you look, the 70’s trend is well and truly alive and here to stay. Yeap, they’re Ah ha ha ha stayin’ alive.

See what I did there.

You might be scared to take your first bellbottomed step into the flared universe and rightly so. This is one area that can go horribly, horribly wrong. Finding the right proportion is difficult, especially if you’re vertically challenged like me. A more high waisted fit will help elongate you while heels will be a necessity, which makes them not the most practical of jeans, but still a silhouette that can earn it’s place in your denim rotation.

They may not be everyone’s disco ticket, but they’re a good alternative shape, maybe a bench player that only really gets play time when the favourites need a break.

Your skinny jeans have been good to you, they’ve been there for every wardrobe emergency, indecisive outfit moment and the after thought of your outfit on more than one occasion. They’re tired, so give them a break and put a little flare into your life!

Today was the first day of Spring, and it was truly glorious.

After yesterdays trans seasonal dressing post, I awoke to a mildy warm morning, warm being a balmy 17 degrees. It’s funny that when we reach the beginning of Spring, a 17 degree morning is cause for dusting off your sandals. At the other end of the year, Autumn rears it’s ugly head and as soon as temps dip below 20 degrees, we’re whining that it’s cold and we’re reaching for our hoodies.

Today I left my house, jacket-less, in a thin white t-shirt and I felt free, liberated and only slightly uncomfortably cold.

EBONY & IVORY


Monochrome


Three things that will always have a place in my wardrobe are a black cami, leather pants and a white blazer.

Why? Because as a threesome, they go together like Mac, cheese and more cheese and separately, they’re independent enough to make a statement while also managing to be the monochromatic glue that can bring together a variety of outfits.

Monochrome outfits are a no brainer and require exactly the amount of cognitive function that I’m willing to give on a Monday morning.

Ebony and Ivory, sit together in perfect harmony.
