Flares and Fringe

One thing I love about Fashion is the fact that it’s always changing. Everything that we think has gone out of style will someday turn up again. This season we are seeing a lot of 70’s inspiration.  While this may not be my typical everyday style, I love to have fun with new trends and change it up now and then.

We have been in “skinny” mode for a while when it comes to denim, but one of the trends we’re seeing make a comeback is flares. The jeans I’m wearing are a high waisted flare from H&M. Although I’m enjoying this trend, I will say that flared jeans are a bit more difficult to wear. Whether you’re 5’0″ or 5’10”, in order to make your legs look longer in a flared jean you need to add some height either with a wedge or a pointed toe pump.

Fringed Kimono’s are everywhere right now. The one I’m wearing is from H&M, but you can also find them at Forever 21, Asos, and Guess just to name a few. These kimono’s are cute with jeans, denim shorts, or you can even use them as a swimsuit cover.

This bag was a Nordstrom Rack score. I live for a good cross body bag, especially in the Summer. When it’s hot and humid out, the last think I want to worry about is lugging a giant bag around. This one is made by Lucky Brand, and you can find it online at nordstromrack.com

I bought these Guess wedges from DSW years ago, and I’m still amazed at how well they’ve held up. A tan wedge is a Summer necessity. You can wear them with pants, shorts, dresses, and skirts. I have linked a similar pair here

Final Note: In the words of Betsy Johnson, “Always Have Fun with Fashion, Dress to Entertain Yourself.”
