High-Waisted Flared Pants – Spring Summer 2011 Trend
Impeccably chic 70s-style, high-waisted flared pants are making a huge comeback! Love it or hate it, they hit the highs of your figure with a flattering waist and wide legs and promise to bring a sleek, sophisticated new-season look. The can’t-go-wrong menswear-style trousers are inspired by the style of fashion icons such as Marlene Dietrich and Katherine Hepburn.
High waisted flares have appeared a season ago when Phoebe Philo (from Chloé) impressed the fashion world with her monochrome outfit consisting of a camel turtleneck and matching high waisted wide-leg trousers. The surprising ensemble gave the impression of never-ending legs that started where the tiny belt was tied.
This season brings numerous elongated silhouettes too, thanks to the always-sophisticated high-waisted pants. The greatest designers entered the lists to convince fashionistas to ditch their favourite leggings in favour of flares. They were (to name a few) Tory Burch, Derek Lam, and Jason Wu (check out their spring summer 2011 collections). Karlie Kloss became the flare pants’ ambassador after her Vogue UK editorial by Paul Wetherell. In a January 2011 issue she sported pieces from the likes of Gianfranco Ferré, Louis Vuitton and Akris styled by Miranda Almond in Tall Order.
Equally confident and elegant, high-waisted flare pants are kind to every figure with slimming pinstripes, a flattering high waist and wide flared legs that balance hips. They always match with silk blouses, boyfriend blazers and technicolor shirts. Dress them up for evening with heels.
