Flare magic

Flares are everywhere this season. Available in a range of sweet colours they make for a great Summer wardrobe piece and help complete a huge range of different looks, from crazily free hippy individual (given a futuristic twist at Topshop Unique, main picture) to creating a casual albeit elegant silhouette (as seen as Etro and Blumarine).

My instinct with them was to play it casual, that's what the essence of the free-flowing, loose and baggy trouser is to me... so I pulled out a crumpled beige pair which remind me so so much of the trousers worn by Belgian guys- Brussels is full of them.
 Proof that inspiration really can come from anywhere (for once Belgian men are practically style pioneers :P)

I transposed some of the following shots over shots from my trip to Brussels last Summer. The perfect trousers for Summer rain...
