We devote a lot of our day to writing about denim, be it the latest trends we spot on the runway or the new jeans sweeping the fashion scene. As it’s one of the hardest-working items in our wardrobes, we consider this time well spent.
Avid readers will know we’ve already given you the low-down on the need-to-know jeans, but now, as we find ourselves on the cusp of autumn, we’re starting to see some fresh new trends emerge, with one throwback jeans style proving increasingly popular in style circles. With wider-leg options coming back in general, it was inevitable that flares would also make a return—we just didn’t predict how impactful they would be.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve spotted ‘70s-style flare denim everywhere. From the streets of Copenhagen Fashion Week all the way to the celebrity-lined sidewalks in NYC right through to our Instagram feeds, flare jeans are set to be a staple part of our wardrobes this season.
We understand, however, if you’re tentative to try the trend. After years of straight-leg jeans dominating the fashion agenda, embracing this exaggerated silhouette straight off the bat might feel daunting. So, to help ease you in, we’ve found six perfect examples of what to wear with flare jeans, which you should be able to re-create with items you already own.
Scroll on to see how those in the know style their flare jeans, and rest assured you’ll be wholly on-trend for the rest of the year.
