(Maybe you’ve seen my ode to the Free Individuals Christina Romper or Free Individuals Pippa Packable Puffer. Sponsor me already, Free Individuals!) Sure, it’s costly. Sure, lots of the model’s sizes go away rather a lot to be desired by way of uniformity (in some gadgets I’m an XS, in others I’m an XL). Nonetheless, I can’t assist however verify the model’s New Arrivals web page on a weekly (if not day by day) foundation. It was on one in all my many, many check-ins with the model’s newcomers that I found the Free Individuals Slim Pull-On Velvet Flare Pants ($78). It’s been roughly a yr and a half since I first laid eyes on them and, at this level, I’ve six pairs. For those who’re on the hunt for cozy, chic-looking flares, you needn’t search any additional.
Free Individuals, Slim Pull-On Velvet Flare Pants — $78.00
Sizes accessible: XS-XL
Stretchy, soft-to-the-touch, and a “dressier” different to leggings, I really like sporting these out and about (assume: brunch, errands, day journeys with mates) and in addition inside (assume: Netflix binges on the sofa).
At $78 a pair, these flares are one in all Free Individuals’s extra reasonably priced gadgets. (And thank goodness, as a result of each time a brand new shade comes out, I take into consideration shopping for it.) Due to their distinctive corded design, the flares have a retro, nearly art-deco attract to them (however possibly that’s simply me).
Like a lot of the Free Individuals bottoms, the Slim Pull-On Velvet Flare Pants tout notable size, each within the legs and the peak of the waist. At 5’6”, and as somebody with barely longer legs, I discover that the leg size is fairly dang good, particularly after I put on them with my platform Converse Run Stars. That stated, when worn with flats, the bottoms do drag a bit (however not a lot that I’d contemplate getting the brief model, as I favor my flared pants to be on the longer facet, versus a extra bootcut size). As for the excessive waist, it’s ever so barely taller than my pure waist, however not a lot that it’s uncomfortable. In actual fact, I discover that the upper waist helps hug every little thing in, so I’m a fan.

Presently, they’re bought in Kelly inexperienced, black, orange, brown, and a cream shade (of which I personal the black and orange iterations); up to now, scorching pink, pink, mint inexperienced, and lilac colours existed (I do know this as a result of I personal all of them).
See, I’m very a lot so of the thought that for those who love a bit of clothes, you ought to purchase it in each shade. That stated, I’m this shut to purchasing the Kelly inexperienced pair, and if blue, teal, or royal purple shades debut, I’ll possible make room in my drawers for these, too.
All this to say, for those who love the consolation of leggings however wish to add a bit extra type and/or shade to your wardrobe, the Free Individuals Slim Pull-On Flares are an awesome choice (the perfect, IMHO). So far as sizing goes, I’d say it’s fairly normal. I’m a measurement 12/14 (L) just about in every single place I am going, and I put on a big in these pants.
