Trend Alert: Flares Are Back!

Flares are back! It didn't take long for us to see flared pants back on the runway. Not just limited to jeans; flares have taken on new prints, textures, and colors. Balmain (left) went boho-rocker in a blue and white tie-dyed number paired with a glam sequined top. This retro-inspired look is easy to wear and flattering on almost every body. I for one, am glad to see flares back in action — are you?

I love skinny jeans! I'll wear a pair of flares every once in a while.... but Those jeans above are more like Bell Bottoms than flares.

I'm definitely happy. It was always my dream to look good in skinny jeans, but sadly, with the size of my ass, I just looked ridiculous unless they were balanced out tucked into a pair of slouchy boots.

I just bought a pair of flare jeans from Anthropologie! They are sky blue and so pretty! I can't wait to wear them with a pretty flowy tank (tucked in, though!!) about a refresher on how to wear flare since it has been a while for all of us??

They're okay, but I hate jeans that are TOO flared. I prefer my skinny ones.
