Just Like 1973
FROM 80'S TO 70'S
My blogging hasn't been great lately. Trying to hold down the blogging fort in Queen Marie's absence, plus working full time at the design agency then coming home and working at night is beginning to take its toll on me a little so I haven't been able to blog as much as I would have wanted. But please bear with me as my time will get a little freer in a few weeks time and Queen Marie will hopefully be coming back to blogging in the near future too.
Because of the above I haven't had a chance to get out and shoot any outfits either so instead I thought I'd share what I'm kinda into just now and that's flares. Not the itchy polyester ones my mum used to make me wear in the 70's, but the skin tight to the knees ones Charlie's Angels used to wear. It's partly because I'm anticipating a summer I hope we'll actually get and also because I've been wearing tight black jeans for the past 30 years and honestly I just needed a change.
Think Cher, 70's Debbie Harry, Lita Ford in the Runaways.
my pick of the flares
I have these in both black and mid blue. I never wear high street denim but these are actually really, really good. The fit is brilliant. They are pleasingly tight right to the knee then flare out enough to cover my shoes. A great way to get the look without spending major bucks.
FREE PEOPLE PENNY
FULL ON FLARE
Free People are doing some amazing flares this season. They have a really authentic 70's vibe to them. These mustard ones are superb but they come in 8 other colours.
CITIZENS OF HUMANITY
CHLOE SUPER FLARE
I used to live in this brand of jeans. I would stock up on them and Seven For All mankind whenever I went to London. Premium denim is obviously a cut above in terms of quality, and they do last a really long time, but you have to absolutely the love the cut to invest over £200 in them. If you feel you would love your flares forever, then get these as they will stand the test of time.
