That 70s Chic

1970s style: denim flares and a simple embroidered shirt

Madewell Jeans and Top, Old Tory Burch shoe, love this new version here and here, Illesteva Sunglasses

Who would have thought flares would make such a comeback. I remember begging my mom for a pair in middle school and can’t believe they have made their way back. Last summer I was hesitant to purchase a pair, but I decided to search around this spring.

I was on the hunt for a pair offered in short (hemming them is difficult since you lose the shape) and at a friendly price point. Since they are a more trendy pair of denim I didn’t want to splurge on something that could fall out of style so quickly. I decided on the Madewell pair pictured above!

I was surprised at how flattering they are in person. Since I am on the shorter side I was nervous they wouldn’t work, but actually found they made me appear taller. With this outfit I wore a pair of wedges, but I love them paired with a pointed heel as well! Currently on the lookout for dark pair providing a more chic look, but in the meantime loving the laid back vibe of these!   -Allie
