Ladies, it might be time to ditch those skinnies, as flares are officially back on the style map this spring. Choose from figure hugging Farrah Fawcett style jeans or a more slouchy, mannish look, harking back to silver screen heroines like Lauren Bacall, Vivien Leigh and Katherine Hepburn. Or go for something cropped for an updated take on the trend.
A block or wedge heel works best, or dress down with a retro trainer or a flat two part sandal.
