When flares initially made their first appearence on the fashion radar since 1979, I have to admit I has extremely dubious. Having owned a leopard print velour pair (yes really) in my youth, I wasn’t exactly thrilled at the prospect of repeating the style crimes of my pre-teen years. Anyway, 6 months on and I’m a flares convert. Their leg-lengthening and bum-lifting properties more than make up for brining back unpleasent memories of past fashion faux-pas.
