My friend Mary and I have been going back and forth about flares for a few months now—she bought the Gucci denim sailor pants and loves them. I’ve tried the Saint Laurent flared patch pocket jeans and just can’t decide. But, after reading this persuasive article in last weekend’s WSJ, I’m going to make a concerted effort to find flares that suit me; I bet that I will live in them. And when I find that perfet pair, I’ll buy two—one to wear with flats, and one to wear with wedges/platforms.
P.S. It doesn’t matter if you’ve worn them before, it’s whether they work for you now. Also, a flare is not necessarily a bell-bottom, there are variations on this theme.
