One thing that I LOVE about trends is seeing the circle they work in. Trends that were cool in the 80’s are laughed at in the 90’s and then cool again in 2015! Outfits that I used to laugh at my mum for wearing are now on every Instagram feed in the western world. The newest-old trend that has done a full circle and I am totally obsessed with is the flare trend. I remember, when I was at primary school, picking out my favourite flares to wear to the school disco. Simpler times.
It’s hard to deny that the 90’s trend has come back in and we are all reminiscing about the times when we looked to Hillary Duff and Vanessa Hudgens for fashion inspo. (anyone else have a lifetime supply of High School Musical annuals?)

If you are paying any interest to Instagram or the high street stores, you’ll have seen the AMAZING array of flares that they offer. I am a bit of a power dresser in the sense that wearing sassy clothes makes me feel like an uber Girl Boss- so a pair of sassy flares is EVERYTHING your girl needs.
Styling the 90’s trend can be quite tricky to manoeuvre, which is why I absolutely LOVE a pair of flares with an extra AF bag and a big, cosy knit. A pair of heeled ankle boots elongates your legs and creates a more elongates silhouette. PUUUURFECT.
Here are a few of my FAVE flares on the highstreet right now.
