This Jeans Trend Keeps Trying to Come Back, Here's Proof It's On the Rise

If there’s one jeans trend we see vacillating in and out of fashion from season to season it’s flared jeans. The ‘70s silhouette always makes an appearance on the runways practically every season—and this spring/summer '21 was no exception. From Victoria Beckham to Balmain we saw everything from bootcut styles to traditional flares and loose, wide-leg styles pop up on the runways confirming that the retro silhouette is well and truly back in full force—and this season they feel refreshingly modern and cool.

We’re seeing the flattering jeans making waves on Instagram too—spotted all over our favorite fashion girls lately—pairing them with everything from sneakers to cute cardigans. Take a peek below to see how cool girls are styling the trend right now and shop our favorites on the market.

You can't go wrong with a classic white button-down tucked into flared jeans. Timeless and chic.

A looser and slightly lower rise silhouette have been extremely popular. Open side slits at the hem give the jeans a fresh look.

A cropped cardigan and high-rise flares are always a winning combination.

A longline knit cardigan top gives flares a modern feel.

A light wash is perfect for spring. Pair it with a pretty pop of color like a celery green hue.

Don't overlook black jeans—so easy to wear with an elevated white tee and statement jewelry.

Channel your inner French girl and opt for a Breton stripe sweater to tuck into your high-waisted flares. Classique.

Change it up and go for white and off-white hues for a spring-ready look.

A leather jacket is another failsafe item to wear with the jeans trend.
