Give the skinny silhouette a rest and go for the freshest ’70s reboot around—the flare. Not only will it elongate your legs when you pair with an of-the-moment pump or wedge, it will become your season’s dress-up/dress-down piece. Case in point: these chic pants in soft blush by J. Crew. Love. Wear. Repeat.
