Flare pants for fall 2015

The flare is back. With the 1970’s influence in fall 2015 fashion, flare pants are proving to be the hottest pant-leg silhouette for the fall 2015.

Designers are showing flares on every pant style imaginable for the fall 2015 season. Flares can be spotted on denim, trousers, leather pants, casual pants, and even lounge-wear. Make no mistake, this is the season of the flare. Love that!

The flare is the comeback style of the season. Flare jeans were hotter than hot in the early 2000’s, and the Millennium trend took it’s cue from the 1970’s. The difference this time around is that flares are being on everything; not just jeans.

I found a few fabulous flare pants around the web, and assembled them into the shopping widget below. I hope you love them! Happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉

February and March are always confusing months for a wardrobe. One day it will be eighty degrees and perfect weather, the next next day it can drop down to sixty degrees and start to rain. Of course, since we have a drought in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are seeing more of those eighty degree, pool days rather than the cooler, rainy days. Oh how we wish for rain! But I digress. . .

Since the weather is transitioning from winter into spring, our wardrobe needs to be able to transition too. This is why I love skirts in thick fabrics which can easily be worn with tights on cool days, and bare legs on warmer days. This Milly skirt fits the transitional bill. It has a black band at the top, covered by my shirt-sorry about that, which allows it to be worn with black tights, and a black wool coat for cool days. On warmer days, the bright colors and the festive pattern work well for a spring look. Love that!

I wore this skirt at fashion week in early February when temperatures dropped below ten degrees. I have never been so cold in my life! Thankfully, this skirt is easy to layer and added a little bright color to the dreary days in New York. My friend Jenna snapped a few pictures of me inside the tents between shows because it was way too cold to take pictures outside. Plus, I wanted to have one last photo opp with the Mercedes Benz display. This was the last fashion week in New York they would be sponsoring so I needed a little souvenir. 😉

Now that the weather is starting to warm up, and it is officially spring, I look forward to wearing this skirt with less layers; and eventually short sleeves as we head towards summer!

Skirts are my favorite transitional pieces from winter into spring, what is your favorite way to transition between seasons?

On the fifth day of fashion week, the temperature rose from single digits, to a warm and cozy 20-something. (Insert sarcastic tone) It was freezing; let’s be frank. I kept myself bundled up in layers and felt perfectly comfortable in this outfit on the fifth day.

I absolutely adore this skirt by Diane Von Furstenberg. It is part of her spring 2015 collection, so I am looking forward to wearing it more often this spring, and into the summer season. 

This bracelet by Kendra Scott is a new favorite of mine. Since blue is my favorite color, and shades of blue are popular for the upcoming spring and summer seasons, I know this bracelet will be worn almost everyday; it already is being worn almost everyday! Kendra Scott also has other pastels for spring in her collection including pink and mint green. Love that!

I was a little disappointed in the color palette for the fall 2015 season. There was hardly any blue! Of course there was classic autumn navy on the runways, but not very much blue. So, I am definitely going to try and get my blue fill this spring and summer! What is your favorite color to wear?
