Fashion Dare: Would You Try These Funky Flares?

Feel the need for a little fashion adventurism? You’re in luck. Thanks to the abundance of street style looks that came from fashion month, we spotted a crop of ladies donning a '60s style staple: the flared trouser. Sure, we’ve all owned and worn a pair of flared jeans, but we dare you to try out a trouser iteration, ideally in a pop of color or bold print.

    We jumped for joy when we came across this insanely cool head-to-toe Acne look, courtesy of Mustaparta. From the effortlessly draped Mape Black Leather Jacket ($1500) to the tulle-embellished Caia Black Heels ($520) to the Akoya Box Clutch ($850) — everything about her outfit left us ready to replicate.

    Color-blocked leather flared trousers, you say? Sign us up! When this pair marched down Etro's F/W 13 runway, we instantly fell in love. The Tan and Black Wool Cropped Jacket ($2141, 212.317.9096) and Red Mohair Sweater ($1010, 212.317.9096) are excellent pairings with the Leather Color Blocked Pants ($2516, 212.317.9096). However, if we owned these on-trend trousers, we suspect a cool white t-shirt would do quite nicely, too.

    It’s true: brightly colored flares mixed with a printed blazer is a slightly intimidating look. Nonetheless, we can’t help but adore this street styler’s rendition of the flared trouser. Her simple t-shirt and topknot blend seamlessly with the other statement-making pieces.

    The Belgian beauty paired Acne leather flares with a snowy white Dion Lee motorcycle jacket during Paris Fashion Week. Her vibrantly printed Balenciaga blouse added just the touch of funk the ensemble needed. Far out, indeed.
