[unpaid/purchase/affiliate] Okay, so I have well and truly embraced the flare – I am not feeling it just now for my beloved skinnies (which is a great pity since I have so many pairs!). I got myself two pairs of the black flares I showed a couple of weeks ago, Lucy has two pairs and while we were away in France at the weekend and I was wearing them we had to find an H&M so that my friend Sian could buy herself a pair. They’re addictive. So, my very off-piste buy (for me) is this sparkly pair of flares and oh my goodness… I love them.

At £12.99, it felt like a risk worth taking because they could so have easily spent their days lounging in my cupboard while I decided if I was brave enough to wear them but I can hardly stop wearing them! I dress them down – either with a black polo neck or this cream cashmere hoodie and trainers because that’s much more my style but they could just as easily be worn with silk shirts and stilettos. What I like about these is that there is plenty of bum room – so they don’t stretch tightly across the groin but give you more of a flatter appearance. There is a bit of give in them, they’re not sequins, more of a metalised fibre, have an elastic waist and they shimmer more than glitter. I did have to take them up as they came a bit too long for me (5ft 3). I take a size M and they’re a perfect fit for my size 12. They’re HERE.
