So long, skinny jeans! Flares are making a major comeback—and we predict they’re here to stay. Denim designers have been getting creative with the retro, ’70s-inspired silhouette for several seasons now, and we love what we’re seeing. Slim-cut blues have been our thing for years—but now, we’re ready to channel our inner hippies. Whether you prefer your flares dramatic or subtle, high-waisted or hip-hugging, get ready to make this style your fall go-to. Scroll down for my favorite way to wear it!
Slip on some clogs. After all, this shoe style’s a flower-child favorite!
Go with the flow. If you opt for some flares that are more fitted up top, combine them with a flouncy top to balance out all that volume on the bottom. Levi’s “315 Shaping Boot Cut Jeans,” $50; levis.com
