Well those ladies are speaking the truth. There is nothing like a high waist, flare leg pant, why do you think everyone in those pictures from the 70’s looks so slim and trim? The secret was in the pants all along, even petite women with the right shoes and high waist, flare leg pant look 20 feet tall. I love BB Dakota’s throwback yet modern enough for business or pleasure play on the flared leg look with theHadley Pant . There a little pricey at 98 dollars, but from what I know of BB Dakota products they will last a while, as long as you treat them with care and in this camel color they are definitely a timeless, classic piece that would enhance any wardrobe. HAPPY SHOPPING!
