Just like every other trend from the ‘70s, flared jeans are back.

Celebs like Jessica Simpson, Bella Hadid and Joan Smalls are taking a popular style from the past and infusing modern-days trends with it. You know those two-tone jeans all the stars have been wearing lately? They come in flared options, too. Not all flares have to be fitted and high rise either—the latest crop have a boyfriend-jean fit to them, so they are slightly baggy and, most importantly, comfortable.
