Flare and wide leg pants have never been a trend to turn into a fad. Since its introduction in the 1960’s to its transitions to the 1970’s. Flare has been one of my favorite trends as a child, and has remained the favorite for many fashionistas for decades. There are many ways that flare and wide leg pants have been worn for every decade and every personality. Such as, a hippie bohemian style, maybe a pantsuit or during the summer for the beach or night out.

Seems like over the last decade the fashion world may have discredited or stated flare and wide leg or(what some call as bell bottoms) were out of style. But, in 2017 if you don’t have either style, there is something wrong going on in your life! What makes wide leg pants unforgettable? Is it that this style can work for anyone, from tall to short if worn correctly.
