TheFind Guest Post: Are You Ready To Ditch Your Skinny Jeans For Flared Denim?



Skinny, cuffed, boyfriend, boot leg, wide leg, and more -- you name the style, and it's highly likely that it's gone through the "what's cool in denim now" never-ending trend cycle just in the past year or less. Jeans are always getting revamped, restyled, recycled, and reinstated back into the world of style, and it can be hard to keep up. Well, blue jean fans -- if you can stay focused long enough to fit one more new re-emerged trend on your wardrobe wishlist, it's time to go back to the 70s (and the 90s.. and the multiple more recent times the trend has been re-worked) to welcome back flared jeans! Waist-accentuating, leg-slimming, and state-making, the flared jean is a big step from this summer's skintight skinnies and uber-casual boyfriend cropped pairs, but you may be surprised at how easily you forgot about the great things flares do for your figure! To keep the look modern, try a trouser-inspired style like these Hudson 'Marisa' jeans, and go with a nice dark wash, like these Goldsign 'Elan' flares or these Paige 'Bell Canyon' jeans, to keep things streamlined!
