We here at Who What Wear like to talk in great detail (and with much passion!) about our jeans. They are one of the hardest-working items in our wardrobes, after all. We’ve already touched upon the biggest jean trends we’ll all be wearing in 2021—including ’90s baggy styles, cross-over waistbands and, of course,with wider-leg styles coming back in general, it only makes sense that flares have returned.
Yes, friends, the ’70s silhouette is back, and we’ve already spotted them on a host of street style leaders (back in September last year, when Fashion Week was still happening) as well as on celebrities such as Katie Holmes. Thanks to designers such as Balmain, Victoria Beckham and Ulla Johnson, leg-lengthening flares are set to be a staple part of our wardrobes this year. And we’ve noticed that fashionable French women, in particular, have been quick to jump on the trend.
