Calling all old-school jean lovers: it’s time to rejoice! Ankles are free to breathe again as flares make a comeback. If you have struggled to master the skinny and the boyfriend style left you looking bedraggled, then take comfort because the future of denim looks flared. In this photo, Katie Holmes looks chick with a checked shirt into her high-waisted flares.
Another flare combo is to have your flares with a pair of patent heels for a refreshing take on summer jeans. They are pretty advantageous as flares are an instant leg-lengthener and can create an elongated, flattering silhouette for all shapes, especially for those with vertically-challenged pins. Those who wear a long torso can even get away with longer, looser tops.
The possibilities with flares are endless. Pick your style and flaunt your flares!
A bra is very good at what it does, but if you want to recycle one, you will have to get creative. There are just not a lot of uses for a bra, other than to provide scaffolding for a lady’s tatas, of course. However, we live in a world filled with very creative people. Surely one of us can come up with a multipurpose bra?
Well, it turns out one of us has already come up with a bra that doubles as something else, and its not something trivial like a slingshot or ear-muffs. Dr. Elena Bodnar is set to unveil her now commercially available Emergency Bra, which doubles as breathing apparatus for two people. This, after seeing the effects of nuclear disaster in Chernobyl.
The bra separates and can be used as two masks which filter out particles that were found to be as harmful as radiation in Chernobyl. This year, Bodnar’s Emergency Bra is hitting e-shelves and can be purchased in a sexy red for just $29.99.
Before you scoff and write this off as a waste of money, remember that you are only as safe as your bra-wearing wife/girlfriend/friend/sister. Wearers can be protected from all kinds of nuclear disasters, while you will find out too late just how useful the bra really is ;).
