Today's Everyday Fashion: That 70's Plaid

Claudia Schiffer is working this look in People StyleWatch! I decided to re-create using my new flared jeans. Even though the wash is darker, I think the flared shape looks perfectly sassy paired with the red belt and plaid shirt.

Why this works: Bell-bottom jeans have a lot of volume, so it's best to pair them with a slim-fitting top. A top with an empire waist, or one that's longer, creates too much volume overall and not only looks sloppy but also adds pounds to your frame. (no bueno)
