Certain denim silhouettes that will always be classic, namely skinny, straight, and bootcut. In the past couple of years, denim styles have been evolving and we’ve been seeing more and more so-called “anti-skinny” jeans that seem to be more than just a fad. Continuing this trend is the resurgence of the ’70s born flared jeans. They had a brief comeback in the early 2000’s, were recently seen on the latest fashion week runways, and have finally trickled down to some of the most stylish celebrities, which, let’s face it, is the real sign that a trend is about to make its way into the mainstream fashion scene once again.
Margot Robbie, Gigi Hadid, Harry Styles, and Victoria Beckham are just of the few fashion forward celebrities that have been spotted recently rocking the resurging denim trend. If their street style is any indication, it’s time to invest in a pair of flared denim for the season. Take a look below how to style them this season.

A holiday staple, you can never go wrong with velvet in any form.
Downplay the excessive manner of sequins by finding an understated sequin piece, an otherwise simple blouse, or even an accessory and pair it with basics to complete your outfit.
Sweater vests, sweater midi dresses with boots, and statement sleeves on a chunky knit paired with denim and heels are easy and a comfortable go-to for casual get togethers.
A Midi Slip Dress/Skit
Dress it up, wear it casually, layer it with knits or leather; there’s no denying that a midi slip dress/skirt is one of the most versatile pieces in your closet for any occasion.
Leather or Leather Accents
Add an edgy touch to your holiday outfits with leather. For a more formal look, try a leather midi skirt paired with a silk blouse. For a casual vibe, try leather trousers and a chunky knit.
