The 70’s inspired flares are having a moment, thanks to the likes of actors Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma and Vaani Kapoor who have been sporting the wide-legged trend of late. But as with any resurrected trend, there are rules to follow the second time around. If it’s cool now, it means it was pretty recently not-so-cool. So, you need to be au courant with the way you are wearing it. Doing this, will not make you look like someone straight out of 70’s movies. Here’s some celebrity inspo on styling your flared pants the right way. So get cracking!
Team it with velvet
Wear a velvet top with your wide-legged pants like Vaani Kapoor, who is wearing a full-sleeved v-neck velvet top from H&M and pants from Deme. This adds more glamour to the look.
Add an Indian touch
Take some style cues from Alia, who looks chic wearing a bright pink shirt teamed with yellow brocade trousers by Sanjay Garg. Brocades are now in, and incorporating them in trousers can be fun.
Try colour blocking
Opt for poppy, contrasting solids to emulate the colour-blocking trend with your flared pants like Anushka Sharma. She is wearing separates from Bodice and we just love the teal shirt with the navy blue pants.
Go for a pussy-bow blouse
For the effortlessly feminine vibe, wear your wide-legged pants with a pussy bow top like Kriti Sanon. The actor is wearing a teal green bow blouse with mint blue pants from Lola by Suman B.
