Wahoo! As I predicted, the skinny jean backlash has begun and wide legged jeans are on the rise. Don't get me wrong - I have warmed up to the skinny silhouette, but I am a 70's girl at heart and love the elongating look of a wide legged pant. Also, I am tall so it makes my legs look super long. But for non-tall gals, it created a long, lean look so really, this is good news for all. With New York Fashion week officially under way, I wonder how many wide legs we're going to see on the runways for Fall 2007. Here is Mandy Moore from this week's Life & Style wearing some fab flares at the Sundance Film Festival.

To see a couple of my flare leg picks,

Wide Leg Tailor Jean

Collette in Dark Indigo
