When it comes to jeans, I have always been intimidated by a wider leg. About 90 percent of my yearly denim wardrobe is unapologetically tapered, tight and ankle-grazing. However, this spring’s batch of 70s-inspired flares have got me thinking: new year, new season…new pants? The free-spirited, flower-child feel of the silhouettes is nostalgic yet totally modern–I think I might be a convert. Here are the options that are making me hang up my precious jeggings and switch teams for good.
1. J Brand bell-bottom trouser jeans, $180, shopbop.com. An unembellished trouser option is a great way to keep the trend work appropriate.
2. Vince Eclipse flare jeans, $195, piperlime.com. Fading on the thighs and a light wash makes these perfect for a casual weekend look.
3. Charlie flare jeans, $129, luckybrand.com. Simple, dark bell bottoms are like a blank canvas, easy to dress up or down.
4. ASOS patch-pocket high-waisted flares, $60.34, us.asos.com. I love the outside pockets and contrast stitching on this pair–it’s all about the details!
5. Gap high-rise flare jeans, $69.50, gap.com. Tuck a flowy blouse into the higher waistline to complete the retro vibe.
6. Textile Elizabeth And James, $250, net-a-porter.com. The distressed touches on this pair make it feel like a treasured vintage find.
Do you end up wearing the same type of jeans every day? What do you do to get out of a denim rut?
