The Most Fashionable and Fun Flared Pants to Wear Now

It's time to consider adding a stylish flared pant to your wardrobe.

Flared pants are absolutely everywhere right now, whether it’s 1970s-esque wide-legged jeans, early aughts-inspired yoga pants or tailored trousers. Gen Z has apparently decided that skinny jeans must be relegated to wardrobes past, and while I’m the first to admit that I’m not quite ready to give up that particular silhouette, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a chic flared pant.

While a flared legging is a comfy and stylish way to don exercise clothes or loungewear (and a welcome alternative to the usual tapered style), you can’t go wrong with a flared pant that has a bit more substance to it—as in, one that you can wear to work, out to dinner or for a day with friends. Flared pants add a sophisticated and mature touch to your ensemble, turning any look into a full, more put-together outfit. They silhouette also tends to have an elongating effect, and who doesn’t want the appearance of mile-long legs?
