    Those are a bit on the extreme of flared pants but they keep coming back in some shape or form every year. Flare is here to stay for women I think.

    to be honest, I really dislike them. The silhouette looks disproportionate in a bad way to me…

    There are trillion reason why I love flared wide leg jeans! 1 being they are super flyyy!!! Owned a pair from H&M and I can't seem to get enough wear out of them. I need a few more, so I think it's time to hit up another brand.

    Does anyone remember hip hugger Landlubbers? They were THE bellbottoms in the late 60s early 70s. I used to go to a store on Lexington Ave and they had them in every type of material including the denim of course. And this was before stone washing, so they were just the dark denim. They were unisex and the legs had to be so long that they dragged on the ground and the fabric at the hem frayed. I wore them with my platform Bare Traps sandals, my Olafdaughters clogs, and my Fred Braun all leather shoes. The Fred Brauns were the Doc Martens of the 60s and early 70s. I loved that look then, it was incredibly cool. But I don't think I will be revisiting it again! I will stick to my Levis 501s and my Acne skinny ones.

    All I can say is-thank the fashion gods the flare is in… or still in… or back- ?? As much as I love-love jeggings (I mostly wear them when I'm wearing boots) the flare is what balances out my hips!

    March 17, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    Great pics and I love those jeans, I just wish they'd make them especially for those with hips, it's hard finding a good pair that doesn't sit half off the bum if you have hips.

    While these girls all look great there's something moderately alarming about the way flares conceal people's feet. To me, they make the wearer look like either a) a ghost or b) a spaceman.

    love this post! reminds me of a Sartorialist post from Thursday, Sept 9 2010 "what's more important, fashion or style" – even though I feel like skinny jeans are all the rage, I just don't look or feel as great in them as I do wide-leg or, particularly, flares. LOVE to see them here in this post, lookin' so good :0) – love the ones in the last picture with the top tucked in! thank you!

    I think the hem on the 2nd image is perfect. It hides the top of the foot but still allows a portion of the shoe to show. You might say that means flares should only be worn with platforms.

    A hem that's too long on a flare makes me feel like an elephant!

    @Janna – Try high waisted flares. Gorgeous!

    @ susanna
    thank you for the story of the new york -60 and -70 brands. I love to hear stories like that – it's the part of history that most often disappears after just a few generations.
    I like the flares on tall, skinny women like these. unfortunately it's not easy for most of us to achieve such a dignified and beautiful silhouette wearing flares, even with platforms. But I think the photo on the top shows a perfect example of the 2011 style, both skinny tights disappearing into high-heeled boots or the more deconstructed but still feminine and elegant look. This photo could enter history!

    I love the look, but if you look closely at the second photo you can see how they're getting wet. All the wide leg pants I've worn in Oregon have had the same problem. The more they swing, the wetter they get. The long length that covers the shoes reminds me of high school in the '70's. All the petite girls could achieve that look with their platform shoes. I was sadly tall and I'm sure my pants came to my ankles. I was very jealous of that shoe covered look.

  75. anna

    Eh. I fell in love with skinny jeans circa 2005 and have only rarely broken out denim with other silhouettes since then. Plus, in the first photo, I honestly think the look on the left is cooler than the one on the right!

    I've noticed that the fashion industry is trying to bring back the wide leg (since it fits with the 70's theme that's been returning), but people should stick to what they look best in. NOW, if you have very large thighs, or if you're very petite, maybe you should opt for a pant with a wider leg.

    I agree with P8 since last year, the fashion industry has been pushing the wide leg jean and the whole 70s thing, and it's fine. But fashion is also free, and we have to wear what we like and look good in.
    That being said, does anyone know if the last jeans are Seven?

    Ah flares. My favorite.
    1st – The contrast of skinny and flare is in perfect balance. They are both worn so well.
    2nd – Is that flare with a cuff in the second shot? Love it. The pop of the pink against her grey bag is nice.
    3rd – The puff of blouse sticking out of the crisp jeans is such a nice feminine touch.

    The return of one of the all-time least elegant silhouettes: it's fine for the supermodels among us but I very much doubt that it fits 98% of mankind.

    There is nothing wrong with wide legs per se but flares are tricky for two reasons: only the very long-legged can really pull it; where the flare starts has to be right & this is very difficult to get from a ready-to-wear department.

    Yes, Susanna, I do remember those brands from the sixties. I'm in the sixties now but for a different reason. I loved my bellbottoms, though on my petite 5' 2" frame they probably didn't look particularly good. But those were times when the wider, the better, and clothing was an almost political statement and you wore them proudly no matter what your body type. Now that I can look at them with a less impassioned eye, the look is less appealing to me. But if younger folks want to give them a try, let them enjoy them.

    For some reason, I'm glad to see the comments about rain and flares. I love the look as it can be very elegant in a funky way, but I find I wore mine less and less when I moved to Ireland. I plot to wear them on sunny potentially rainless days (rare); somehow I never entirely was conscious why!

    Yes, they are seriously non-rain options; skinny jeans are more practical in that sense, though I do prefer the flare. It's a bit of attitude where you least expect it.

    Ditto–loved the historical overview of 70s fashion and brands. Wish there were more of that!

    I notice that many of these photos are taken in areas with beautiful cobblestone and brick sidewalks. How do these beautiful ladies walk in platforms and high heels? I live in an area with similar sidewalks and streets. Women ALWAYS wear flat shoes outdoors. To do otherwise is to risk a turned ankle or worse.

    it's a very late 60's early 70's cut on these jeans..tight to the knee then flared to cover the foot.
    ( not good for rainy days as seen in the second photo..the hems act as wicks)

    the last photo of flares is
    J Brand jeans ( noticible byu the little green stripe on the waistband) it's also their telltale 'wash'

    You see when it comes to jeans it should be more about the practicality not the trend. Skinnies should be for winter because they don't get wet on the hems and they work with all your boots, e.g. the second picture
    And flares in spring and summer when our taste runs more bohemian in the warmer weather, and also they look great with wedges and heels, whereas skinnies not so much.

    I hate when fashion gets so unaturally 'fashion concerned' and these kind of pants are an example, the ladies in the pictures make the most of them though.

    My favourite were called Chemin De Fer (not sure if the spelling is correct). Was so thrilled when i saw Mackenzie Phillips (a la One Day At A Time) wearing the same pair.
    Ahhh, those were the (flair) days.
    PS. Last pair is J Brand.

    I like to wear flares, but only with the tallest of heels. For any kitten or flats i wear my skinnies. Come to think of it, these ladies are doing that too.

    The jeans on the last picture are J Brand, you can tell by the green stitching on the back of the waist band. The first two pictures could be J Brand too, possibly their Love Story style.

    Flares make super skinny legs look even more so, and IMO that's not a good thing.

    They look nice on these women but I think because they are all very thin. I like the 2nd shot best. In general I am tired of jeans. I wonder when, if ever, they will be completely out of style, irregardless of the cut?

    Very beautiful to see the different amount of fabric used for the legs and it works, narrow or wide, and to see them next to each other.

    The fashion industry has been pushing the flare for the past few years. They're going to keep pushing until every women in American buys a pair. I'm so sick of trends.

    Skinny jeans are atrocious unless one is actually skinny! Viva la flare! Thrilled to see them back in again. I never stopped wearing them really, but when skinnies were everywhere I just started wearing dresses all the time!

    Working this. Has always been a fan of flares. But thought against it since I thought it looked best on girls with thin long pins. But I managed to figure out getting them couple inches longer and got me some platform wedges (MORE assuring than the stilettos when walking about)…so yeap yeap…working it an thinking I would be sticking to it for a long time to come.


    April 14, 2011 at 3:48 am

    The first image is great.

    However, the real issue to address here is that of everyone is always overlooking or not knowing about the jeans brand MiH when looking for 70's flares. I bought a pair of the Marrakesh flare in that brand from and I think they are amazing. The color is a nice dark even rinse that's on point, and they make your butt look SUPER and pair great with a nice button down to give it that modern look. Highly recommend those for any ladies looking for a pair of 70's flares.
