If I opened your denim drawer right now, I bet I could guess some of the key silhouettes stored inside—straight-leg jeans, skinnies, and perhaps even an of-the-moment outlier like those “grandpa” cuts. But what’s one style that probably hasn’t surfaced to the top of the pile as much as of late? Flares. Sure, cropped flares have been well, cropping up, over the last few years, but the more polarizing bootcut and bell-bottom styles (aka anti–skinny jeans) haven't been as popular again until recently. Well, get ready—as we continue to see on the runway and streets, flares are officially back and will continue to hold strong through 2020.
That’s right, designers from Celine to Paco Rabanne reintroduced fresh flared jeans in their S/S 20 collections as the next It denim pick for the forward set. And fun fact, celebrities like Gigi Hadid, Margot Robbie, and Harry Styles have already been following suit in ’70s-inspired flares. Fashion girls are also starting to embrace the vibe after stepping out in a range of cool styles throughout fashion month.
To highlight the look further, we broke down how the flare trend is taking over the runway, celeb, and It-girl world right now for you below. We also shopped out the coolest cuts of the moment if you’re ready to try the trend again—before everyone else does come 2020.
Light-wash flares pop even more with black separates like with this cropped black knit.

The split-seam opening at the bottom of the flare makes these jeans especially modern.
