The Best Flare Jeans, According to Amazon Reviews

Of all the denim trends and styles out there, we're particularly excited about the renaissance that flare jeans (and their slightly more voluminous cousin, bell bottoms) have been experiencing as of late. After bell-bottoms reached their prime in the '60 and '70s, the early aughts saw the first of the flare jean revival, this time being reintroduced into the mainstream fashion scene under a new name: boot-cut, a style with a slightly slimmer flare. Then eventually skinny jeans rose in popularity while flares faded (only slightly, though). Fast-forward to today, and flare jeans (in both slim and super-voluminous silhouettes) have become a must-have in our denim drawers—yet again. What a roller-coaster, no?

Though the denim trend was embraced in various decades (the '60s, '70s, and 2000s), it's current revival is most often associated with the return of '70s fashion. Pair your flares with a simple white tee and a basket bag, and you have an outfit that was worn on repeat by '70s style icon Jane Birkin. Team your voluminous denim with a printed blouse and platform heels to go full '70s. The styling options are far-reaching when it comes to a pair of flare jeans, so if you haven't yet embraced the pants yet, we suggest you do so just in time for fall. 

In an effort to make your quest for the perfect flare jeans as easy and stress-free as possible, we've handpicked 20 that are among the top-rated styles on Amazon. From the wide bell-bottom cut of the '70s to the slimmer boot-cut of the early aughts, find all the best flare jeans, according to Amazon reviews, below.

Top Review: "Love these jeans! I was a little worried about the size since several reviewers stated that they ran extremely small, but I ordered a 26 as that is my usual size with 7 for all Mankind. When they arrived, they fit perfectly. The material is incredibly soft and comfortable while hugging your frame perfectly all day long. My new favorite go-to jeans!"

Top Review: "I am pear shaped and jeans are the bane of my existence. I have always hated shopping for jeans because they either 1) never fit in the waist or 2) won't go around my hips. Plus I'm no fan of skinny jeans which are all the rage right now, so there's that.

"However, these jeans are AMAZING. The material is slightly stretchy, so it breathes and is extremely comfortable, and the high waist means that the waist fits perfectly even around my monster hips. The cut is very flattering, especially on a pear-shaped body (and booty), so I am absolutely in love. I will say one thing people may or may not like is that they're quite long. I'm 5 5," and they drag on the ground a bit, but I just wear them with heels or platform shoes, and they're fine. I also really like having longer jeans, so for me, they're everything I could have ever wanted. When I have some more spending money, I'll definitely be getting a second pair!"

Top Review: "My new favorite jeans ever!! How have I not known about these until now? I am your classic pear shape, so I definitely fit the body type these jeans were made for. They are very flattering and very comfortable. The length is a little long, but I actually prefer that versus the jeans that are right at the top of the foot. It keeps them looking great even when you sit down. I hope they never stop making these jeans so I can keep buying them!"

Top Review: "These are really nice jeans-up there with the designer ones like Joe Jeans and Not Your Daughter's Jean. The denim is top-notch, the fit is great, and they look so nice! I am very short—5'2"—and these were the perfect length for me. I am really impressed by these."

Top Review: "I love the fit on these! I got my regular size, and they fit perfect! They're a little long, and I'll have to get them hemmed, but most flare jeans I get aren't long enough, so I would much rather them be too long than too short! Hope this helps!"

Top Review: "This is my second pair of Derek Lam pants. My first pair were dress pants and they fit me like they'd been tailored. Now, I've bought the Gia Women's cropped jeans, and the fit is again perfect. Extremely soft and comfortable but with that expensive tailored to fit look. I received so many compliments because they make me look tall and skinny! I'm ready to throw out all my other pants and just wear Derek Lam! Cost a little more but well worth the price. Looks good, washes well and received a million compliments! There is nothing NOT to love about these pants! A perfect 5 star!!"
