If I opened your denim drawer right now, I bet I could guess some of the key silhouettes stored inside—straight-leg jeans, skinnies, and perhaps even an of-the-moment outlier like those “grandpa” cuts. But what’s one style that probably hasn’t surfaced to the top of the pile as much as of late? Flares. Sure, cropped flares have been well, cropping up, over the last few years, but the more polarising bootcut and bell-bottom styles (aka anti–skinny jeans) haven’t been as popular again until recently.
That’s right, designers from Celine to Paco Rabanne reintroduced fresh flared jeans in their S/S 2020 collections as the next It denim pick for the forward set. And fun fact, celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Margot Robbie, andHarry Styles have already been following suit in ’70s-inspired flares. And that’s not slowing down for this coming season either.
To highlight the look further, we broke down how the flare trend is taking over the runway, celeb, and It-girl world right now for you below. We also shopped out the coolest cuts of the moment if you’re ready to try the trend again this coming autumn/winter. Keep scrolling for everything you need to know…
