If you’re a woman who enjoys being fashionable, chances are you’ve wondered if flared skirts are still in style.
Flared skirts have been popular for many decades now, and they come in all sorts of colors and styles. Whether it’s a pencil-thin skirt with an elegant hemline or a puffy midi skirt that hugs your waist tightly, there is surely one perfect for any occasion or event.
You can wear a flared skirt from the past season on any occasion you want, and it would still look great. If you’ve noticed flares being worn more on the runway in recent years than in high-end fashion stores, you might be wondering why this has occurred.
Choose a flared skirt with a tighter top that will cover your waist. If you want to wear an empire-waist style, make sure it is fitted and not loose. If you want to wear a blouse, tuck it in properly or wear a long cardigan over your top.
You can wear a belt with flared skirts to stabilize your waistline. A simple belt will not only add silhouette to your waist but it will also make sure that your skirt is hanging straight and that it does not show too much of your midriff.
The basic idea around flares is that they minimize everything below the waist, especially the hips. You can really see this in the exaggerated flare bottoms worn by models and celebrities. They help draw attention away from where you want it to go (your legs) and mostly it works — if you like it. Flare can make you look like you’re on the runway. They make you stand out.
But having said all that, you should wear what you want to wear, and if flares are your thing, then go for it. While many women feel comfortable in skinny jeans and boot-cut pants, there’s nothing wrong with wanting something that’s a little different or in believing that you feel fabulous when wearing them. Every woman should have at least one pair of flares in her closet.
In summary, flared skirts are still in style during the summer months. But they will not look good on everyone. You must adjust your style to make sure that you enjoy wearing flared skirts without having them showing or with belts to add bulk to your waistline.
