This month’s edition of the Trending Topic section comes with a very special collaboration! I teamed up with the lovely Chrystin from A Mate & a Rottweiler to share our favorite trend for this Winter with you, since here in Argentina we’re welcoming Winter next week.

Chrystin is one of those awesome people I met thanks to our beloved blogosphere, after her blog’s name “caught my eye” as I explained in my first comment in A Mate & a Rottweiler (“Mate” is a traditional Argentine drink, you’ll see). Although she’s American, she runs her blog in Buenos Aires, and she posts about fashion, beauty, food and lifestyle. I know, everything sounds so interesting, right? Be sure to check her favorite trend HERE and feel free to follow her amazing blog. 🙂

Now, as for my pick: flare pants –also known as bell bottom pants, are currently in the top of my favorite trends for this season. Although they’re part of the 60’s/70’s revival you can style them in very different ways, making them “more you”. Let’s see some examples, shall we?


La edición del Trending Topic de este mes viene con una colaboración muy especial! Me uní a la adorable Chrystin de A Mate & a Rottweiler para compartir con ustedes nuestra tendencia favorita para este Invierno, ya que en Argentina estamos dándole la bienvenida al Invierno la próxima semana.

Chrystin es una de esas grandes personas que conocí gracias a nuestra querida blogósfera, luego de que el nombre de su blog me haya llamado la atención, como le expliqué en mi primer comentario en A Mate & a Rottweiler (“Mate” es una bebida tradicional de Argentina, si es que no lo sabían). Aunque ella es estadounidense, bloguea desde Buenos Aires, y escribe posts sobre moda, belleza, comida y estilo de vida. Ya sé, todo suena muy interesante, verdad? Asegúrense de chequear sus tendencias favoritas AQUÍ y siéntanse libres de seguir su asombroso blog. 🙂

Ahora, en cuanto a mi elección: los pantalones acampanados –también conocidos en Argentina como “Oxford”, están actualmente en lo alto de mis tendencias favoritas para esta temporada. Si bien son parte del resurgimiento de los 60’s/70’s, puedes estilizarlos en maneras muy distintas, haciéndolos “más vos”. Veamos algunos ejemplos, quieren?

1. As I just said, this kind of pants belongs to the hippie era. If you really feel like channeling your inner Jannis Joplin and get carried away with her free spirit, then go for it!


2. Okay, I get it, not everyone wants to be warmed up in ponchos. If that’s your case, a head-to-toe classy take on a 70’s look is always welcomed. Remember, the 70’s weren’t all about boho; there were also classic ladies like Ali MacGraw you can take inspiration from.

3. You still want your outfit to represent those decades but you don’t want to go hardcore? Relax, there’s always a more toned down way to do it. Make sure to choose sober colors and adding a retro accessory like a hat to find the right balance.

4. But what about the office?! I haven’t forgotten you, boss ladies!


5. For a casual afternoon with your friends…

6. Flare pants can work perfectly for a fun night in the city, too! Flirt with the disco time by putting just some glitter on and enjoy of your Saturday Night Fever!

7. I know at first hand that when you’re petite things can get a little tricky. The secret is accentuating the waist whether by wearing a belt or choosing a high-waisted pair and tailoring the botton part, making sure it covers the shoes almost entirely. You can always check petite leading ladies like Miroslava Duma, Victoria Beckham or our fellow blogger Wendy Nguyen for more inspo. Or ignore the rules and create your own like the queen of flares: Rachel Zoe, who’s also petite and still wears tunics and long coats over hair pants!


8. Printed pants are also a great option for an edgy girl. Don’t be afraid of injecting some bright color or a cool print during the colder months… or any month, actually! 😉

9. One of the best runway looks featuring flare pants is this one from Zimmerman for his Ready-to-wear FW 2015 collection.

10. And of course, if there’s a trend, there’s a celebrity happily rocking it. In the picture: supermodel Karlie Kloss.
