Being 5″ nothing I find flares tedious to wear because they become frayed and torn from dragging across the dirty floors. The unglamorous side of flares, and almost the very reason why I have avoided them.
But if you can pull them off and get over the floor factor – go for it. Because flares will be making a huge come back this SS15.

Fashion Squad is playing with lengths in her outfit. The wide legged, long flares with the long line top make for an elongating figure. Paired of course with boots, a hat and fur.
Personally a tip for those who are on the shorter side. Try wearing a crop top, cropped shirt or tucking in a polo neck so your height isn’t stumped.
Shop more flared jeans
STYLE UP YOUR MINI SKIRT
Im looking forward to the mini skirt trend. Mainly because it goes hand in hand with the thigh high/knee boot trend. Mixed with different textures and prints I think this could easily be worn in any women’s wardrobe.

What Olivia Did, has shown us all how to wear the mini skirt in the day time without feeling shameful. Is it the tights, of the large hat which helps? I think its both. Also the fact that she is wearing flat ankle boots is key to feeling comfortable.

Fashion me now has also chosen the flat boot option. Flat shoes, ballerina style shoes would go with this look too.
If I were you I would head to Primark and stock up on some tights because you will need them with this trend emerging quickly.
Shop suede skirts
CLASHING PRINTS AND JAZZY JACKETS
Think prints on prints on prints.
Topped with faux fur, tassels, leather and suede.
You have to brave for this one.

We Wore What has shown us how to embrace this trend with out going too over the top.
She has the prints, the suede and the fringe but has simply kept the jacket and boots a similar colour.

Again, if your not comfortable wearing prints on top of prints you could try and find something that has different colours, shapes or prints on the item itself.
That way you can wear the statement item and dress around them.

SHEER OR SUEDE
Sexy is back, because thats what the 70s was all about.
Think halter neck tops, deep Vs, over the knee boots and sheer everything.

A pinafore dress and in suede, screams 70s.
I would add a hat or a thin neck scarf to really get into the trend.
Shop suede dresses

Sheer and deep Vs are a key aspect to the 70s trend and it can be hard to pull off for everyday.
Lilly Aldridge shows how a sheer dress can be worn in the day.
The flared, loose sleeves help to tone it down.
Personally I would leave this trend for evening time or festivals.
Shop other polka dot dresses
This is one of my favourite aspects of the 70s SS15 trend.
Add a skinny silk scarf to your outfit and instantly step back to the starlet seventies.
Who couldn’t be a fan of this trend when Kate Moss even rocks it.

The Little Magpie is THE 70s Starlet. It fits her so well that she makes it look so easy.
Alexa Chung who?
My top tip would be to hunt your local charity shops for scarfs.
