Denim Flares – it’s a 70s thing

If you check out my Pinterest “Clothes Maketh the Wo(man)” board, you’ll notice quite a few outfits featuring denim flares.

Flared jeans

I’ve already got some denim skinny flares; I blogged about them in one of my first ever posts. They’re from Dorothy Perkins and a couple of years old; they were classed as bootcut on the website, but I think that’s because “flares” weren’t on trend back then (the fickleness of fashion).

Anyways, I bought these jeans in the sale from New Look a few weeks back; they were reduced to just £13.

These new ones are really 70s – they’re high waisted and have front patch pockets and they’re lightweight fabric with a bit of stretch and they’re lovely!

Then, a couple of weeks back, I saw some pale blue ones on the H&M website. I’ve always wanted some pale blue ones but never seen any that were quite the right blue, or right shape or texture. These again have patch pockets for that real 70s vibe, are very soft and they’re high enough waisted to tuck in all of my greedy tummy!

These were £19.99, and have a smaller window of opportunity than the dark ones (I don’t think you can wear light blue jeans in winter, but that’s just one of my own rules for myself)

Here are some more of the gorgeous Pinterest inspiration pictures I’ve been drooling over featuring denim flares.
