There's a lot of flared jeans about at moment though the trend seems to be for cropped flares - either cropped wide leg or cropped kick flare. Though if you have a pair of flared jeans that you like I'd wear them anyway tbh.
A new jeans shape can take a few years to catch on because it's a change of silhouette so you have to rethink tops and often shoes too. I'm certainly seeng more than this time last year - a lot are cropped which looks bizarre at first but which is actually very practical in a rainy climate.
I occasionally wear my old ones, I think I get away with it . I'm big on relaxed skinnies/skinny boyfriends at the mo (but HATE that most boyfriend/girlfriend jeans are short. I've got long legs and like a turn up, so it's been an annoying hunt.
There are some around - but I agree, any shop has 101 pairs of skinnies and then 1 straight and 1 flared pair. Not everybody looks good in skinnies - I personally look like I have 2 stuffed sausages for legs.
I'm not sure flares would be too flattering on me (heavy thighs) but skinnies are horrific and I'm not straight enough for straight denims. I'm thinking something from Vango's latest catalogues might be more appropriate for me
