Of all the '90s trends that are once again in vogue, we're most excited about flare pants. They're playful, flattering, and comfortable, and they look great with booties, sandals, and even a pair of sneakers. Of course, not all flares are the same. In fact, there are countless types and ways to wear them.

Ahead, you'll find everything from work-ready trousers with a roomy bootcut to funky striped pants that fit well into the bell-bottom category. Whether you are going for a professional vibe or want to emulate the days of the Spice Girls, these flares will get you there in style.
