I don't know how you feel about the Seventies trend but personally I'm so glad that flares have made a comeback. I love a good pair of skinny jeans and they have become my staple uniform over the last few years but with the sun shining this weekend and Spring in the air, it felt so good to try something new and style up this Seventies-inspired blouse and high-waisted flares by Marks & Spencer.

When you're tall (I'm 5'9) it can be so difficult to find jeans that are long enough which is why it's great that M&S are one of the few retailers that offer full denim ranges in petite, regular and long. This pair is a size 8L and they still look long enough with platform tan heeled sandals from New Look which is a miracle! But what I love about this style the most is the stretch and comfort. Although the jeans are figure-hugging I didn't once feel as though these jeans felt too tight and the high-waist is also super flattering and especially good for tucking tops in.

I styled this blouse in two ways so you can see how it looks tucked in and out of the jeans. As the fabric is really light, it's the perfect top for everyday wear, holidays and I'd imagine it would look super lovely with some denim shorts and sandals come the summer months - although I wasn't brave enough to get my legs out just yet! I really love the high neckline and sheer detailing on the top, plus it has little buttons half way down the back so it's an ideal floral addition to your wardrobe for Spring. To pull the look together I added a plaited tan belt and some statement earrings for a bohemian edge.

I enjoyed styling the flares so much I've decided to do a Seventies series so I'll be posting two other outfits around these flares this week. It looks like they're out of stock online at the moment but fingers crossed they are still available in store! You can find other flared styles at M&S here in the meantime.

How will you be styling your flares this season?
