It’s Official — Flared Leggings are Back

Like many of the early trends from the 2000s that were once banished to the back of our closets, what was out always eventually comes back into style. Uggs are in full force yet again and now, another controversial trend is picking up steam once more — flared leggings.

If you’re like me, the thought of anything bell-bottomed sends shivers down your spine. But it’s undeniable that some of the most stylish celebs are stepping out in the ankle-freeing style, and we’re paying attention.

Emily Ratajkowski rocked flared leggings while bundled up in a cozy winter outfit, and the leggings gave a comfy touch to an otherwise street-style ready look. We love the chunky scarf and sleek hoop earrings she accessorized with.

Kendall Jenner elevated hers with a bold green coat and matching pumps. It’s equal parts comfy and stylish, and the leather handbag makes it a great look for grabbing dinner in.

How to wear flared leggings

As evidenced by these stars, you can pair flared leggings with pretty much anything depending on the aesthetic you’re going for. If you want a more sporty look like Emily, try grabbing an oversized jacket or sweatshirt to pair with your leggings. If you want a more runway-ready outfit like Kendall, we’d recommend a fancy pair of heels instead of sneakers, and a cute cardigan.
