To Death with Skinny Jeans

By Lizzie Carter

The days of skinny jeans and cropped hems seem to be fading as we enter 2017 and a whole new age of 70’s inspired flares seems to be beginning. The hottest trends on the runway this winter tended to be flowing, fun, flirty hemlines and large, roomy sleeves. Bell bottoms are back to boogie.

This unique style flatters every body type, making the idea of squeezing yourself into some questionable skinnies even more unappealing. Even with a bold striped pattern, you can’t go wrong.

With sky high platforms, you can rock this look in age old, traditional fashion. Channel your inner Stevie Nicks with an elevated heel or wedge for a fun and funky look.

Bell bottoms and flares will update your look even while throwing it back to the good old days of disco. Another plus, you won’t have the constant worry of ripping your pants when you go to sit down, like you would in skinny jeans, due to all the free movement in the leg. So blow full steam ahead and be sure to have fun with this trendy vintage look.
