Sonia Rykiel’s Pre-Fall ’15 Styling May Be The One to Get Us On Board With Flared Jeans





I believe everyone has a “decade.” You know, style-wise. Some people are great at appropriating that 70’s look so it doesn’t look like a costume. Me? Not so much… I have a very hard time with flared jeans. While I do like wide-legged jeans a la Katharine Hepburn, it’s very hard for me to really work a pair of flared jeans without feeling like a poseur.

With the Pre-Fall collections STILL coming in (do designers ever get a break from fashion shows?) before Fall-Winter Fashion Month commences next month, Sonia Rykiel squeezes in a couple of denim looks that update that 70’s flare while still being true to the era. The photo above with the long trench coat over a pair of high-waisted, flared jeans reminds me of something my mom used to wear around the time I was born. The 70’s were all about length, maxi-dresses, long coats, long hair, long legs. And it’s all in this collection, yet it’s surprisingly 21st century.
