Trend On The Rise - Flare Leg Jeans

Devotees of skinny jeans may not like the news that flare leg jeans are back this spring. Personally, I'll be embracing the trend again, as I enjoy variety in my denim silhouettes. This also means that I can revive all of those circa 2003 flare jeans that I have instead of letting them collect dust in the dark depths of my closet. Whether you opt for a high waisted or more flattering low waisted style, here are a few tips for wearing them in a modern way:

Do: have flare jeans hemmed to a practical length; if they're too long and drag on the ground, they can appear sloppy

Don't: wear flare jeans too big, as they look most flattering with a snug fit in the waist, hips, and thigh

Do: look for styles that begin to flare at the knee

Don't: wear a pair that completely covers your footwear. You don't want the hem to be so big that you look like you're going to a rave

Do: pair with breezy tops, ribbed tanks, and lightweight vests for warmer weather

Don't: pair with thigh length tunics, as the proportions on top should balance with the volume at the bottom of the jeans

Do: enjoy how small your hips will look with the flare leg silhouette

Below, five options, all under $75
