Add a Little FLARE to Your Christmas Day Party


As homage to my love of all things seventies. (A tad obsessed) Today I'm sharing how I style Retro Flares. Do you fancy adding a little dab of flared funk to your Christmas celebration this year? If so read on sista or brotha (I'm a berk) and grab a glass of  festive fizz!

Flares are an all time favourite of mine. The extreme wide bell shaped leg instantly create a visual statement and mood. Typically worn in the 1970's with a strong chelsea boot or high heel inbetween the hippy era by a particular type of woman. 

I've teamed my flares with my big collar puffy sleeved 'colour of the season' Red shirt.

I've also added a double knit red vintage jumper to add a bit of layering and warmth to this look. 
The bag is navy and quite structured in design. I like how the gold chain add's a bit of glam and sparkle too. 

The flares are wool navy, each button keeps the trousers really fitted and slim line around the waist. 

I've spoken before how I like the roughness and masculinity of this coat. I call it my Del Boy coat! (Please tell me you grew up watching Del and Rodney Only Fools and Horses) It just never fail's at making me feel pretty fabulous.
