Fall 2010 looks from Balmain, Derek Lam and Gareth Pugh Fall 2010 looks from Balmain, Derek Lam and Gareth Pugh

Are your skinny jeans pulling away as you grab out to them? Do you hear your legs screaming as you pinch them into these tight constraints?

Thankfully, the refreshing flare pant is coming back into our lives for fall 2010. The fad was seen on runways of designers like Derek Lam, Balmain and Gareth Pugh, and although it’s predicted for fall, the summer nights may see a little bell as well.

I put a pair on the other day and figured I’d wait until the weather warmed up a little to throw on a flowy, simple tank top and of course attack the ensemble with accessories! It gets me in this hippie mood where life is just peaceful and happy. If that isn’t enough, it also flatters legs making the upper thigh look smaller in comparison to the flared bottoms. With skinny jeans, our upper thighs are competing with the circumference of our ankles! 

Check these looks out for starters!
