When will flared jeans come back?

They always say they're going to, but they never do sad

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.

I'd wear flared jeans if I didn't live in a wet country where I walk a lot. Flares & flats get dirty very quickly.

When can we bin all our skinny jeans? sad

ShieldMaidenMamma Wed 17-May-17 10:57:52

I'd just be happy for normal jeans to be easier to find!

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 grin. 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.

Simply Be do great flared jeans. I have a couple of pairs. They are called Phoebe.

I wear flared jeans now, I love them as a break from skinnies. They came from Esprit.

Maudlinmaud Wed 17-May-17 13:01:29

Wear them! I've seen them, especially the cropped variety. I have a white pair I wear in the summer.

Carrie have you managed to find any longer length boyfriend/girlfriend jeans?? All the ones that I've tried have ended somewhere mid-calf which looks comical (not to mention draughty).

Asos have loads.
I live in them

IJustLostTheGame Wed 17-May-17 14:14:05

OK so they're more wide leg but I have these, the sizes come up quite big.

Squashit Wed 17-May-17 14:32:14

I have seen loads of people in them recently. I think everyone has skinny fatigue.

KatharinaRosalie Wed 17-May-17 14:34:48

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.

Teabagtits Wed 17-May-17 14:37:51

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

froyotogo Wed 17-May-17 14:39:56

I've never stoped wearing them. Very flattering fit larger figures.

HoneyDragon Wed 17-May-17 17:30:34

I'm wearing them. High waist big flare at the bottom. Fashion police haven't caught up with me yet grin

carrot not really. I got a cheapy pair of Paige Carters when in the US over Easter, but they're still a little on the short side really. I've found sizing up in straight legged jeans can work.
