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.
