Those are a bit on the extreme of flared pants but they keep coming back in some shape or form every year. Flare is here to stay for women I think.

There are trillion reason why I love flared wide leg jeans! 1 being they are super flyyy!!! Owned a pair from H&M and I can't seem to get enough wear out of them. I need a few more, so I think it's time to hit up another brand.

Anonymous susanna said ... (2:52 PM) : 

Does anyone remember hip hugger Landlubbers? They were THE bellbottoms in the late 60s early 70s. I used to go to a store on Lexington Ave and they had them in every type of material including the denim of course. And this was before stone washing, so they were just the dark denim. They were unisex and the legs had to be so long that they dragged on the ground and the fabric at the hem frayed. I wore them with my platform Bare Traps sandals, my Olafdaughters clogs, and my Fred Braun all leather shoes. The Fred Brauns were the Doc Martens of the 60s and early 70s. I loved that look then, it was incredibly cool. But I don't think I will be revisiting it again! I will stick to my Levis 501s and my Acne skinny ones.

Anonymous stylelinx said ... (3:28 PM) : 

All I can say is-thank the fashion gods the flare is in... or still in... or back- ?? As much as I love-love jeggings (I mostly wear them when I'm wearing boots) the flare is what balances out my hips!

 

Anonymous Janna said ... (3:32 PM) : 

Great pics and I love those jeans, I just wish they'd make them especially for those with hips, it's hard finding a good pair that doesn't sit half off the bum if you have hips.

 

Blogger Archie said ... (3:34 PM) : 

While these girls all look great there's something moderately alarming about the way flares conceal people's feet. To me, they make the wearer look like either a) a ghost or b) a spaceman.

Blogger Mack said ... (3:57 PM) : 

love this post! reminds me of a Sartorialist post from Thursday, Sept 9 2010 "what's more important, fashion or style" - even though I feel like skinny jeans are all the rage, I just don't look or feel as great in them as I do wide-leg or, particularly, flares. LOVE to see them here in this post, lookin' so good :0) - love the ones in the last picture with the top tucked in! thank you!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:59 PM) : 

Hmm... Not so soon, I daresay.

 

Anonymous Brandy said ... (4:02 PM) : 

I think the hem on the 2nd image is perfect. It hides the top of the foot but still allows a portion of the shoe to show. You might say that means flares should only be worn with platforms.

A hem that's too long on a flare makes me feel like an elephant!

@Janna - Try high waisted flares. Gorgeous!

 

Blogger Nomadic D. said ... (4:06 PM) : 

Honestly I could care less about the flare, but is that the Burberry Aviator jacket in the 1st pic? God, that's a beautiful piece.

Is there a difference between bellbottoms and flares, they sort of look the same.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:29 PM) : 

@ susanna
thank you for the story of the new york -60 and -70 brands. I love to hear stories like that - it's the part of history that most often disappears after just a few generations.
I like the flares on tall, skinny women like these. unfortunately it's not easy for most of us to achieve such a dignified and beautiful silhouette wearing flares, even with platforms. But I think the photo on the top shows a perfect example of the 2011 style, both skinny tights disappearing into high-heeled boots or the more deconstructed but still feminine and elegant look. This photo could enter history!

i don't like pants that hide shoes, but i think flares look great on tall women. I'm no good with flared jeans, but I may look into the trend again.

 

Blogger Beth said ... (6:37 PM) : 

I love the look, but if you look closely at the second photo you can see how they're getting wet. All the wide leg pants I've worn in Oregon have had the same problem. The more they swing, the wetter they get. The long length that covers the shoes reminds me of high school in the '70's. All the petite girls could achieve that look with their platform shoes. I was sadly tall and I'm sure my pants came to my ankles. I was very jealous of that shoe covered look.

 

Blogger anna said ... (7:03 PM) : 

@beth, YES. tall girl here and i always coveted the hidden shoe look. still do, no matter how many disparaging comments i hear about it. ;)

Anonymous P8 said ... (9:54 PM) : 

Eh. I fell in love with skinny jeans circa 2005 and have only rarely broken out denim with other silhouettes since then. Plus, in the first photo, I honestly think the look on the left is cooler than the one on the right!

I've noticed that the fashion industry is trying to bring back the wide leg (since it fits with the 70's theme that's been returning), but people should stick to what they look best in. NOW, if you have very large thighs, or if you're very petite, maybe you should opt for a pant with a wider leg.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:43 AM) : 

I agree with P8 since last year, the fashion industry has been pushing the wide leg jean and the whole 70s thing, and it's fine. But fashion is also free, and we have to wear what we like and look good in.
That being said, does anyone know if the last jeans are Seven?

Ah flares. My favorite.
1st - The contrast of skinny and flare is in perfect balance. They are both worn so well.
2nd - Is that flare with a cuff in the second shot? Love it. The pop of the pink against her grey bag is nice.
3rd - The puff of blouse sticking out of the crisp jeans is such a nice feminine touch.

8-C
The return of one of the all-time least elegant silhouettes: it's fine for the supermodels among us but I very much doubt that it fits 98% of mankind.

There is nothing wrong with wide legs per se but flares are tricky for two reasons: only the very long-legged can really pull it; where the flare starts has to be right & this is very difficult to get from a ready-to-wear department.

Not a fan. Flares are tolerable in a hippie-style outfit, otherwise no for me.

 

Anonymous Champagne said ... (6:51 AM) : 

This silhouette is much more architectural than the flares from the past. Beautiful line, not the frumpy 70's demin.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:01 AM) : 

Yes, Susanna, I do remember those brands from the sixties. I'm in the sixties now but for a different reason. I loved my bellbottoms, though on my petite 5' 2" frame they probably didn't look particularly good. But those were times when the wider, the better, and clothing was an almost political statement and you wore them proudly no matter what your body type. Now that I can look at them with a less impassioned eye, the look is less appealing to me. But if younger folks want to give them a try, let them enjoy them.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:02 AM) : 

For some reason, I'm glad to see the comments about rain and flares. I love the look as it can be very elegant in a funky way, but I find I wore mine less and less when I moved to Ireland. I plot to wear them on sunny potentially rainless days (rare); somehow I never entirely was conscious why!

Yes, they are seriously non-rain options; skinny jeans are more practical in that sense, though I do prefer the flare. It's a bit of attitude where you least expect it.

Ditto--loved the historical overview of 70s fashion and brands. Wish there were more of that!

I notice that many of these photos are taken in areas with beautiful cobblestone and brick sidewalks. How do these beautiful ladies walk in platforms and high heels? I live in an area with similar sidewalks and streets. Women ALWAYS wear flat shoes outdoors. To do otherwise is to risk a turned ankle or worse.

it's a very late 60's early 70's cut on these jeans..tight to the knee then flared to cover the foot.
( not good for rainy days as seen in the second photo..the hems act as wicks)



the last photo of flares is

What's with all this "are they back" / "are they not back" nonsense? If that's what you like to wear and you know you look good in it, then you need to rock that shit. Don't be a slave to what's "trendy"...just do you.

 

Anonymous luna said ... (2:00 PM) : 

You see when it comes to jeans it should be more about the practicality not the trend. Skinnies should be for winter because they don't get wet on the hems and they work with all your boots, e.g. the second picture
And flares in spring and summer when our taste runs more bohemian in the warmer weather, and also they look great with wedges and heels, whereas skinnies not so much.

The jeans on the last picture are J Brand, you can tell by the green stitching on the back of the waist band. The first two pictures could be J Brand too, possibly their Love Story style.

The combination of the NAVY COAT and thr pants are amazing. Where can I get a coat like that?

 

Blogger The Clothes Horse said ... (2:41 PM) : 

These outfits are just fantastic. Not over the top or anything but they're so well crafted. Sophisticated and simple. Does anyone have any idea where that aviator jacket comes from? It's beautiful!

Last year, I travelled throughout Italy and France and never saw anything other than skinny jeans. It's nice to see flares back again as an option.

The first picture is amazing

Wow I can't believe they are back. I loved my bell bottoms in high school! I knew I should have kept them! (Well fitting into them is another story)

Flares make super skinny legs look even more so, and IMO that's not a good thing.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 PM) : 

They look nice on these women but I think because they are all very thin. I like the 2nd shot best. In general I am tired of jeans. I wonder when, if ever, they will be completely out of style, irregardless of the cut?

 

Blogger Aubrey and Melissa said ... (12:26 AM) : 

I am so incredibly happy this style is coming back in, I was getting a little tired of straight legs. These look great!

Love the top picture of the two women with opposite extremes for the jeans. I do love the flare jeans and so glad to be getting away from skinny ones.

Blogger Little Lovables said ... (4:48 PM) : 

I love these, so long as they aren't 70's huge, but the dark, classic cuts are lovely.

 

Blogger Shannon Elle said ... (5:50 PM) : 

Love all three photos...BUT in the first photo, I couldn't tell who that was with Emmanuelle Alt...been trying to figure it out since you posted. Geraldine Saglio!!! They look great in this photo with the perfect contrast and compliment to one another. ♥

The girl in the 1st pic to the left is a young Babs Streisand. Well hello Gaw-jess! LOL

I only like either skinny jeans or wide leg jeans where the whole leg is actually wide and baggier.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:37 PM) : 

Very beautiful to see the different amount of fabric used for the legs and it works, narrow or wide, and to see them next to each other.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:18 PM) : 

The fashion industry has been pushing the flare for the past few years. They're going to keep pushing until every women in American buys a pair. I'm so sick of trends.

 

Anonymous Vanessa Mary said ... (7:55 PM) : 

Skinny jeans are atrocious unless one is actually skinny! Viva la flare! Thrilled to see them back in again. I never stopped wearing them really, but when skinnies were everywhere I just started wearing dresses all the time!

 

Anonymous Julia said ... (5:07 PM) : 

Yes, they are back! :))) I love flares. Now I will finally enjoy wearing jeans and pants again. :)

 

Blogger Walking around with a scapel said ... (12:49 PM) : 

Working this. Has always been a fan of flares. But thought against it since I thought it looked best on girls with thin long pins. But I managed to figure out getting them couple inches longer and got me some platform wedges (MORE assuring than the stilettos when walking about)...so yeap yeap...working it an thinking I would be sticking to it for a long time to come.

 

Blogger IRINA PRIPORINA said ... (3:48 AM) : 

The first image is great.

However, the real issue to address here is that of everyone is always overlooking or not knowing about the jeans brand MiH when looking for 70's flares. I bought a pair of the Marrakesh flare in that brand from shopbop.com and I think they are amazing. The color is a nice dark even rinse that's on point, and they make your butt look SUPER and pair great with a nice button down to give it that modern look. Highly recommend those for any ladies looking for a pair of 70's flares.

I'll be drawing the ladies in image #1 in charcoal, then ink. the clothes have as much gesture as the figures!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:26 PM) : 

love flares, they make legs look miles long, and love them even more w/a pointy stiletto - that way the feet don't ghost away under them
