Move over skinny jeans

The next time you walk into your favorite clothing store, chances are you’ll find loud prints, flared leg pants and airy delicate textures. Fashion has been feeling groovy lately! The latest trends have had a lot of influence from the 1970s – a huge difference from the camo/leather trend we had last Summer. Instead of bold and structured, we’ve got soft, ribbed, and rugged which is perfect for summer festivals.
Move over skinny jeans! I can finally walk around in my bell bottoms without getting side eyes! I’ve always loved styles from the 70s because they were comfortable more than anything. Clothing was either loose fitting, or tailored during the decade of post-Woodstock, protest and change. Ways that cool cats like you you can transition comfortably into this trend is to start off with a pair of wide leg pants. The difference between wide leg and flare leg pants is that flare leg slims along your thigh then billows out around your calves. Wide leg pants are wide fitting from hip to ankle. If you dont have lots of height for a flare leg, you can opt for culottes. Culottes are the newest trend this season. While a few might remember them as gauchos, these wide leg shorts can be dressed up with pumps or dressed down with sneakers, so they match anyone’s style!
