I don’t know about you, but i’ve spent quite a few years wearing nothing but dark denim or black skinny jeans. This is nothing against those (I still wear them all the time) but it’s nice to have a bit more variety when it comes to jeans and pants. These velvet flares from Free People are a dream! They have an awesome retro vibe to them, and they’re insanely comfortable! When I saw them on a mannequin in the store, I was instantly drawn to them, and had to have them. I’ve also been noticing a distinct lack of velvet in my wardrobe that i’m trying to remedy, and these pants are a great start!
