Trend Alert: How to rock the straight silhouette


We can no longer fear the flare. And really, there’s no need to. Remember how we all cowered in fear when skinny jeans were introduced? How could we possibly style such tight jeans, nevermind in a flattering way. But today the skinny jean is as much of a wardrobe staple as the classic white shirt or the trench coat.  Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 3.22.14 PM With that in mind, let us explore flares. The ways to style are endless: the easiest style hack is to simply keep proportions in mind a la Solange Knowles. Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 3.26.00 PM Keep your top half super fitted and take the opportunity to show some skin like Bonang. (It balances out the voluminous shape of the trousers.) Style tip: High heels are also an easy way to ease your way into the trend (especially for the shorter sisters.) Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 3.14.39 PM For those who dare to wear, however, the answer lies in the art of exaggeration. A longer-length knit or blazer is an edgy way to wear oversized trousers, and the result is achingly modern. Style tip: Pair with sneakers for a look that’s sure to set social media alight.
