If you look through the pictures from the fashion shows Fall-Winter 2016-2017, you’ll not be able to ignore such a large amount of flare pants that were incredibly popular in the 70s. By the way, the disco era with its futuristic features has very clearly showed up in the footwear trends of 2016-2017, where we saw a lot of shoes and boots on the extra- high platform and huge thick heels. As for the flared pants, among the pieces presented on the runway, you’ll find a lot of these pants, echoing the 70s style and new designs, connecting flared cut with culottes and Palazzo pants.
If you like classical fashion looks and don’t want to attract much attention to you with ultra-modern features of your clothes, then opt for the pants of the almost straight cut with a slight flare from the knee. These pants should completely cover the shoes, and in their cut they are often very similar to Palazzo pants – loose, very wide and flowing. Pants with a slight flare effect is a basic universal model that is suitable for everyone, except short women.
Another big trend of this season is cropped flared pants. Strange but true: a few years ago, when flared cut was showed once again among the hottest trends on the runway, the stylists in one voice argued that we can’t wear flared cut, exposing our shoes – no way. And what we are seeing for now: this is a really hot trend that have exploded fashion collections. The modern flared pants not just open shoes, they rise higher, exposing the ankle, looking like culottes and flared pants merged in one piece of clothing.
