So long skinny jeans. Hello, fabulous flares.
Skinny jeans have long been ruling the denim empire and dominating the fit of our trousers. But, according to the latest in-store fall arrivals and fashion magazines, it’s the year of the flare.
Go ahead, let your inner flower child throw up a peace sign to salute the fit because there are definitely some looks reminiscent of bell bottoms.
