Not long ago I was ranting about how much I hate bell-bottoms and flared jeans and I swore I would never ever wear them again. In view I wore this style since my teens and it was all I wore up to 2009, you can imagine how fed up of them I was.

Well, it turns out you should never say ‘never’ and the main reason I’ve changed my mind about it is to see streetstyle with a refreshing new take on them. Of course, this doesn’t involve pairing them with clogs, a suede fringed coat or a peasant blouse or any reference to the original way of wearing them as the 70’s hippies did for that matter (sorry, Mom). Instead, clean-lined minimalism and Scandi-cool style is infused into the old silhouette and that, my lovely readers, makes a whole new world of difference to me. Think neo-70’s or the 70’s revisited and consider it a new interpretation of the style, instead of a revival.


Es ist nicht lange her, als ich mich noch über Schlaghosen beschwert und sie zu Tode gehasst habe, da ich sie ohne Ende trug, seitdem ich ein Teenager war. Seit 2009 habe ich sie nicht mehr getragen und deswegen könnt ihr euch vorstellen, wie satt ich sie hatte.

Aber man soll niemals ‘nie’ sagen, da ich vor kurzem meine Meinung geändert habe. Der Grund dafür ist, dass ich Streetstyle gesehen habe, wo  sie in einer neuen Art kombiniert wurden. Natürlich hat diese Art überhaupt nichts mit dem ursprünglichen Stil der 70er zu tun, d.h. mit Tunika-Blusen oder mit Clogs. Stattdessen trägt man Schlaghosen auf eine moderne, minimalistische Art und das macht einen riesigen Unterschied für mich. Anstatt eines Revivals der Schlaghosen, ist das eher eine neue Interpretation des Stils.


No hace mucho me quejaba con mis amigos de cuánto detestaba los pantalones acampanados y que jamás me los volvería a poner. En vista que los llevaba desde mi adolescencia y no fue hasta el 2009 que dejé de hacerlo, ya os podéis imaginar cuan harta estaba de ellos.

Pero resulta que uno nunca debe decir ‘nunca’. La razón por la cuál he cambiado de opinión es el hecho de haber visto nuevas formas de llevar esta tendencia. Por supuesto que es algo  que no tiene nada que ver con llevar este estilo de pantalón con zuecos de madera, blusas campesinas o ninguna de las formas en  las que se llevaban durante la década de los 70. En vez de ello, pensad minimalismo, lineas claras, y limpias y estilo escandinavo. No es un resurgimiento de la tendencia, es más bien una reinterpretación de la silueta.

    Love this look! I think I’m way too short to pull flares off, but they look great. And I love the bag!

    I think it’s awesome that you’re wearing a piece you had kinda grew tired of. I’ve always loved flared jeans and whenever I wear them, I style them more minimalistic too – can’t go wrong with that. You look so incredibly chic in this mix, and I’m excited to see how else you style them come spring. Looking beautiful my friend! Miss you much!

    stunning dear!!


  4. […] and don’t want to look like a hippie? Then simply keep it monochromatic and minimal for a modern take on the popular 70’s trend. I paired my Zara exaggerated flared pants with a bodysuit to create a more femenine silhouette […]
