10 Flares We Need Right Now

Every fashion girl knows there is infinite inspiration to take from the age of the flower child. But perhaps the most important style lesson we can absorb from our seventies sisters is the art of the flare pant. Don’t get us wrong, we love a good dark wash skinny jean just as much as the next girl, but the fashion world has officially declared this to be the season of flares.  If you haven’t worn a pair of flare jeans since the 4th grade–remain calm–times, and styles have changed. These pairs are fitted, frayed, flattering and anything but the Roxy pair you wore in elementary school.
