A TASTE OF THE SEVENTIES



I made a promise to myself a few weeks ago to put blogging back at the top of my to-do list. This is quite a feat with a full time job, I can tell you that! Nevertheless it is Sunday and I'm back with another post! Tonight is quite a different one, skinny jeans will not be featured! Yeah you heard right! Tonight you see me in . . . flares!





Flares are a style of jean which I never thought I'd ever wear. Thats up until I began spotting some amazingly cool outfits, popping up on my social feeds. I do believe it or not, sometimes like to experiment with new styles, so I thought to myself, why the hell not give them a go?

My main source of inspiration for this post, came from looking through the Saint Laurent Men's Fall 18 collection. Flares play quite a part within this amazing 70's inspired capsule. I've included my favourite AW18 look below, but if you want a good nosey yourself, I've added the link to Saint Laurent website, at the bottom of my post.

I've paired my flares with my large linen shirt, which I've owned for a while now. This shirt always looks killer on, channeling that old school 70's style. When I threw the white shirt on with my flares, I felt as though I was Jim Morrison himself, which is ALWAYS a good thing! I like the contrast of the black flares against my off white shirt, broken up with a vintage silver buckle belt, adding little that extra detail. 





My lightening bolt boots from Asos gave me a few extra inches in hight, allowing the bottom of the flares not trail along after me, you must look out for this classic mistake when wearing flares! Personally, I think a pointed shoe underneath a flare, always makes for a good look, just as the rockstars of the past wore them.





I also paired the outfit with a vintage pair of sunglasses, which again I picked up from Asos, they were a bargain, only costing me £15. These circle sunglasses are a nice finishing touch, giving the outfit that retro rock 'n roll look.


The only downside to rocking a flared jeans, is that finding the perfect pair, for us guys, proves to be a extremely difficult task indeed. So difficult in fact, I'm wearing my girlfriends flares from Topshop. So a big shoutout to CJ for kindly lending them to me. Even though they are a woman's jean I still think they look and fit great! These particular flares are the 'Black Flared Jamie Jeans' which you can find online at Topshop.
