Flared leggings are a blast from the past that have made a triumphant comeback in the fashion world in recent years. Adding a touch of retro flair to contemporary wardrobes, they are not only comfortable and flattering, but also offer endless styling possibilities. From the gym, to yoga, to brunch, or a casual day out, flared leggings can be your new stylish go-to wardrobe staple. If you’ve recently fallen in love with the comfort of flared leggings, but need some help with styling options, then we’ve got you! In this blog, we will delve into precisely that, beginning with ideas on what to pair with your flare leggings.
First things first… what is a flared legging?
Flared leggings are a style of leggings characterised by a design that gradually widens towards the hem, creating a distinctive flare or bell-bottom effect. Unlike traditional leggings, which typically have a form-fitting silhouette throughout the leg, flared leggings start narrow at the waist and hips and then gradually widen, resembling the shape of bell-bottom pants from the 1960s and 1970s. Available in our signature REP fabric, Zephyr fabric, and Ribbed fabric, our flared leggings are designed with some of the winning features of our Fusion Tight, such as a high-rise fold over waistband and no centre-seam PLUS an added flare from the knee. They’re perfectly suited for mild flow and stretch workouts and a versatile addition to your everyday wardrobe. As much as we love the timeless appeal of classic leggings, flare leggings offer a distinct silhouette that can significantly transform the overall vibe of an outfit. The flared leggings are a big hit at the LSKD office, with a number of our team styling them for a cute office fit.
Pair your flared leggings with…
A Cropped Tee
Elevate your flare legging look with a basic cropped tee. Whether you're going for a casual day out, hopping on a plane to your next destination, or going to a yoga class, a cropped tee is a simple way to style your flared look. This combination creates a sleek and flattering silhouette that will leave you feeling not only comfortable, but confident.
An Oversized Tee
Mastering the art of styling flared leggings with an oversized tee is like discovering the perfect harmony between comfort and fashion. This dynamic duo creates a laid-back yet chic look that's perfect for various occasions. Take a cue from the street style scene and give your oversized tee a stylish twist. Tie it up or tuck the front of your oversized tee into the waistband of your flared leggings, creating a relaxed but polished look.
A Hoodie or jumper
Embrace the perfect fusion of comfort and style by pairing your flared leggings with a comfy hoodie or jumper. This laid-back yet chic combination offers versatility for various occasions, whether you're running errands or just enjoying a casual day out. You could add a touch of casual allure by wearing it off one shoulder and pair the look with some sneakers, creating a relaxed sport style look.
