Maven trend alert: Show some flare this Fall

Good morning, Tuesday. Was a lovely relaxing weekend with a road trip thrown in for good measure and lots of time to cuddle with Khan, cook, and draw. I so could use one more day though. I haven't gotten much vacation time this Summer and am craving a bit more down time. But I digress. Because it's back at it full throttle- NY in the Fall is a magical place when everyone still has a bit of a tan, but is ready for a new season, refreshed and renewed.

Of course I've been thinking about clothes (what else is new?) and one of my fav trends out there for the Fall is the return of the flare pant. We've seen flares in jeans for a while now, but love the idea of a black flare trouser to wear with everything from minidresses to blouses to blazers and back again. They are an amazingly flattering silhouette on most body types and love how elongating they are. Plus they speak deeply to my boho/rock and roll soul so can't go wrong there. I like both the cropped version and the floor grazing version for different reasons. I have them both and can't wait to wear them. 

These from the Row in leather are magical and cropped, while these trousers from Elizabeth and James are a great take on work dressing with a twist. For my money I'd go with basic black- a great way to embrace the trend but not feel too carried away. 

But if you do want a color- use Rosetta Getty's dark red chenille for inspiration. So lovely. And the fabric looks fab too.

Loving these from H&M for an affordable take on the trend. And for me, I'd stay away from the flamenco ruffled version I'm seeing in retail this season- those are just not my fav. Too caliente perhaps, and if you don't have a fruit basket on your head or tap shoes, you may want to stay away. 

Oh, and at the top of my post is my inspo for this trend- an oldie but goodie from Zara on (yes again) Stella Tennant. How good???

Cause that's whats up this flares are everywhere kind of Tuesday in the 212. Yours, in long lines and groovy vibes. XO
