Happy Monday, beauties!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are off to an awesome start to your week! Today's outfit continues to demonstrate my obsession with '70s fashion. I seriously love everything about this fashion era and I'm so excited in attempting to create outfits with this theme. One popular color from this time is terracotta, which is basically a burnt orange. This color itself will give your entire outfit a '70s feel, so if you don't have anything in your wardrobe that reads '70s chic, but have something this color, you've got enough to work with! 

Another piece that exemplifies this era are the jeans, of course! This was the time that full on flares or "bell bottoms" were embraced and I'm happy to say are making a comeback, because let's face it, they left a while ago when skinny jeans stole the show. Don't get worried, I'm not suggesting you toss your skinnies, they still have a special place in my heart, but there are other styles out there that we should indeed try. If you're familiar with my YouTube videos, then you've heard me suggest that flares or wide legged pants are great for every body shape, especially the pear and hourglass shapes, since they help to visually balance out and compliment curvier hips. For the apple, inverted triangle and rectangular shapes, wider legged pants help to create a visual balance for the upper body, preventing one from appearing too top heavy. They add the illusion of curves, creating a nice clean streamline by flaring out. 

So, if you were in doubt if flares would flatter your shape, I'm here to assure you that they will! I do want to mention that if you're petite, you may want to add some wedges or clogs to your look when wearing wide legs, to create some more length, as the extra fabric on the bottom can overwhelm your height, but you can wear them!!!

I hope you found this post helpful, my loves and I hope you all have a groovy day ;)
