As someone who basically lives in jeans, I’m not one to pass up a great denim trend. We’ve already touched on some of the biggest jean trends this season, from vintage washes to distressed denim, but by far one of my favorites has been the comeback of ’70s silhouettes—flares, boot-cut, and wide-leg styles—thanks to designers such as Celine, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Gucci championing the trend on the runways.
The non–skinny jean trend has already been spotted all over the ’gram on some of our favorite influencers and celebrities. This season, the trending silhouette calls for full-length jeans with a trouser-like wide leg and a waist-cinching high rise. There are plenty of cool and modern iterations of the ’70s trend on the market right now, like wider-leg styles and boot-cut silhouettes. There’s something to suit every taste and body type.
Eager to find the best flare jeans to add to my arsenal this season, I tried on a plethora of different brands and styles and found these 11 below to be the best-fitting. Read on to check out my absolute favorites to invest in right now. (And for reference, I am 5’6” and usually wear a size 27.)
