Who are flared pants good for?
Like any item of clothing, flared trousers also have "preferences" in terms of physicality. However, there are various models from which to choose the one that best suits your build as well as your personal style.
Generally speaking, the so-called “traditional” models, with medium-low waist, narrow leg and wide end part, fit in physical minutes, as in the case of Olivia Palermo, big fan of the trend. The low waist tends to shorten the lower part of the body, which is why this type of trousers are particularly suitable for slender bodies.
The advice is to focus on models with higher waistline. In this way you will visually lengthen the lower part of the body and, with the help of a few centimeters in height, you can wear your favorite trousers without being out of place.
The flared jeans
A true cult for entire generations, they are among the most complex models when it comes to matching. The reason? Denim is identified as casual garment and the wide leg can accentuate this look if not perfectly ironed and with a meticulously finished hem.
That's why, if you were thinking about flared jeans for a date, the solution is the combination with a soft sweater and a pair of original sandals, to show or hide depending on the length of the hem.
If, on the other hand, the heel is not for you, there are two solutions: focus on a pair of well-finished jeans and combine them with a chic blazer, the classic sneakers in white leather will complete the outfit giving it an extra twist. Or get rid of preconceptions and play with creativity: oversized striped shirt, fringed jeans - among the seasonal trends - and colored ankle boots.
