5 Ways To Wear Flared Jeans

by Laura Chabal
23rd Jul 2015

Flared jeans have been making a comeback these past few seasons, crawling back into fashion whether you’re a fan or not. Personally we’re into flares. They reigned before skinny jeans took up the can’t-live-without-them throne, and the revival is overdue. Flared jeans are really fab, even with all the nostalgia overshadowing them. After all, some women really rocked the 1970s fashion back in the day – think Jane Birken and Brigette Bardot. Just keep away from iron-on flower transfers and flares so big they’re giving off tent vibes. Theshape in general is universally flattering and gives petite silhouettes almighty length when paired them with a pair of wedge heels.

We’ve gathered some of our favourite flared jeans of the moment, along with outfit ideas. Embrace your inner Farrah Fawcett and skim.
