I didn't actually think I'd be saying that flares are back, but believe me when I say that they are and in a big way this season. I feel like it's a 70s flashback with some of the styles that are in right now like the round glasses, bell sleeves, knee high boots, and flare jeans. I've been looking for a pair that I would feel comfortable in and had a high waist plus a good wash that wasn't too dark or too light - and I think I found the perfect pair! I have loved gap jeans for awhile now and I think this style is just as great as the rest. They aren't too wide of a flare but just in between and the fit is great with a little stretch in them. So don't be shy and give some flares a whirl this fall. I think they can really be a fun change.
