Flare for Fashion?

Wide leg trousers and flares have always been popular at various points through history, with bell bottoms in the 1970s, bootcut jeans in the late 1990s and now the 2010s showcasing a penchant for flares. For the past decade, we have shunned these cuts in favour for sometimes uncomfortable and dull skinny jeans. While the rich and famous have continuously worn wider leg trousers, only recently has the high street provided us with some great dupes. 

Celebrities such as Gigi Hadid, Hilary Duff and Dua Lipa have all shown their love for flared trousers. Worn for an array of occasions, in an array of styles these famous faces prove flares are for any time and anyone. If you’re feeling bold, you can opt for a metallic flare ensemble like Gigi or if you want to be more causal for those 9am lectures, simply pair with a T- shirt like Hilary Duff.

Where do you find yourself a pair of flattering flares? Online retailers like Missguided and ASOS have an abundance of styles, so you are sure to find a pair or two that you love. What’s more, they have student discount. While skinny jeans are a great staple, I think it is time to spice your wardrobe up with some flares. Not only do they look super flattering on, but are amazingly comfortable and your favourite stores are offering them super cheap. What else could convince you?
