Flares are back. Well, actually since quite some time and actually in March I already showed an only slightly flared pair of jeans and in June an option in black. Thanks to the collaboration of Italian fashion designer Giambattista Valli and premium denim brand 7 For All Mankind today it’s going to be a little more extreme.

For that reason, I kept the rest of the outfit clean with a classic, white blouse, a leather jacket, a black hat and high heels (to lengthen the legs visually – as we all know bootcut jeans put on some visual weight on). One doesn’t always have to exaggerate, right? Especially not, if a piece of clothing make opinions differ as much as the revival of the flared jeans. What’s your opinion?

Die Schlaghosen sind zurück. Also, eigentlich schon seit Längerem und eigentlich habe ich euch im März auch schon eine Variante mit leichtem Schlag und im Juni eine schwarze Version davon gezeigt. Heute wird es dank dem Resultat der Zusammenarbeit von Giambattista Valli und 7 For All Mankind allerdings noch etwas extremer.

Dafür bleibt der Rest des Outfits mit einer klassische, weisse Bluse, einer Lederjacke, einem schwarzer Hut und hohen Hacken (um das Bein optisch zu strecken – bekanntlich machen die Hosen ja nicht gerade schlank), ganz clean. Man braucht ja auch nicht immer zu übertreiben. Besonders nicht, wenn ein Kleidungsstück die Geister so sehr scheidet, wie das Revival der Bootcut Jeans. Was ist deine Meinung?

  101. You look so confident & bold in that look. Also love the horn necklace detail. :]

  102. My opinion, I agree with you. Bell bottoms do add visual weight for sure. You have to be tall & lean to pull the look off for the most part. I think the problem is that most people don’t know how to find the perfect bell for their body type. Much like the female form, not all bells are the same size. Personally I don’t care for them so you’ll never see me in them. However I was told that the bell shouldn’t be wider than your hips and/or the width of the jeans. Equally important, the length. I see that yours are dragging on the ground. That must be difficult to walk in, not to mention how dirty they are when you take them off. I wonder why designers make bell jeans so long and regular jeans so short. The mysteries of fashion.
    Aside from all of that. I like that you went with a modern chic look and not so literally as to the era the jeans are from. So easy to do that. Clearly you’re more fashion savy than that.

  103. richtig klasse! die beine sehen ja ewig lang in der jeans aus :)

    Lieber Gruß

  104. Lovely flares, great colour and fabric! Also loved the jewellery details:D

  105. So glad that flares are back, these were my childhood pants. You look very chic in those!

  115. I have always loved flares and I have been wearing them since elementary school. I must say I admire how well you have styled this pair.

    Those flares look fantastic on you! Pairing them with a simple white shirt and leather jacket was ingenious. I also really like those rings with blue stones and that lovely necklace.

    pure perfection!!!!!!

  116. I love the flare and they look great on you.
