One of the most iconic fashion trends of the 70s is back. That’s right, we’re talking about flared jeans.

Although skinny jeans still hold a special place in our hearts, it looks like flares are back – and here to stay. They’ve made their way into the closets of many celebrities and have been entertained by brands for several seasons now.

When it’s cooler and you want to layer up a bit, consider flared jeans for your everyday looks. As we head into fall, looser style jeans such as flare and mom jeans seem to be the most popular due to the flexibility and functionality they offer – also one of the reasons why flare jeans were so popular back then.

The best part is that you don’t have to break the bank to rock the latest flare jeans trend. Brands such as Levi’s, Nordstrom and more have plenty of affordable options you can shop this fall.

To help you get started with your fall wardrobe, I’ve rounded up 5 pairs of my favorite flared pants, along with the tops to wear them with.

The look: Black flare jeans and buttoned blouse



Levi’s latest 70s high waisted flare jeans from their FW21 collection are hands down my favorite considering how soft, comfortable and stylish they are.

When I tried on the pair I fell in love with the fabric and fit. As a short person, I’m always worried about the look of flare jeans, but I was amazed at the fit, quality, and design. The jeans really fit like a glove and are so flattering.

The great thing about Levi’s is that they have plenty of options for sizing and inseams so you can choose the best fit for you, as well as other color options.

The pair of ultra-high-rise flared jeans are slim through the hips and thighs, incredibly soft, affordable and another big plus: the jeans are sustainably made with TENCEL™ fabric.

TO BUY : Levi’s, $128



A super soft cotton button down shirt with a frilly collar and oversized sleeves to make a statement while staying stylish.

Another item from Levi’s latest FW21 collection that I love after trying it on is the Emilie Button Down Blouse. A real vintage vibe with an incredibly soft fabric that pairs perfectly with the black flare jeans, and you can wear it tucked in, out or under a sweater if you like.

Once you’ve tried the blouse, you’ll want all the blouses from their latest fall collection.
