Flare Ups.

Words and some images originally published in The Toronto Star (thestar.com), September 21, 2010. Written by me!

ChloƩ Fall/Winter 2010

While physics says what goes up must come down, designics (is that a word?) says what was once tapered must become flared. After what feels like 62 seasons of skinny trousers stealing centre stage, the scene is now set for the rise of the flared pant. 

These belled beauties popped up all over the fall 2010 runways. Rochas kept its short and sweet, while Balmain's Christophe Decarnin's had a hard-edged rocker vibe (quelle surprise).

But if you don't want to look like Joan Jett day-to-day, try pairing them with a wide shoe (to ground the look) and a roomy top (to balance the tight rise).
