Styling Tip: Wear Flare or Wide-Leg Jeans

One-Minute Makeover Tip: Add a Bit of Flare

Curb unwanted "I have nothing to wear" anxiety before it flares up. By employing your sartorial prowess and unearthing tucked-away wardrobe treasures, you can update and transform any outfit in 60 seconds flat. We've tapped into the chicest of resources — our stylish community and fashionable Fab editors — for simple styling tricks to instantly breathe new life into the back of your closet. For today's tip, just go with the flow: rock a wide-leg silhouette.

  • Embrace the effortlessly casual and cool 70s-inspired style staple. Let your flare or wide-leg jeans (we accept both styles in this makeover edition) make a statement. The exaggerated shape on bottom allows for a plethora of styling options on top; from oversize layers to bold necklaces, the flared look has an inherently bohemian vibe.
  • The wider the style, the more creative license you have. Add other '70s-reminiscent prints, patterns, and textures to polish off the throwback look. We love the idea of pairing a thrifted fur collar over a striped turtleneck or mixing a loose-fitting silk button-up with long gold chains for nostalgia.
  • Don't forget to throw on some killer platforms. The wider silhouette may fool you into thinking that shoes are an accessorizing afterthought, but think again. Add length to your flares to keep from falling prey to a frumpy silhouette. Try a chunky flatform, wedge Mary Jane, or stacked heel for spot-on styling.
