Shop the trend: How to style flares

Also known as bell-bottoms, here’s where you can buy flares in all kinds of shapes, styles and colours.

Flares, also known as bell-bottoms, are a style of pants that becomes wider from the knee down. The style was loved and adored in the late 1960s and 1970s as they scream a boho and punk rock vibe. Feeling a little apprehensive to try the trend? Flares can be subtle or extreme, depending on how wide you choose the leg to be.

Flares are flattering on many body types and shape curves in all the right places. Thankfully, there is a range of styles to choose from. You can pick from denim flares in any shade of blue or black or you can find printed flares in all types of crazy colours. Looking for the hottest festival wear? Figure-hugging mesh flares are so popular right now! Any style of bell-bottoms you choose will be sure to flatter you and hug you in all the right places.

To help you get started, we picked some of our favourite flares from a range of retailers like Princess Polly, ASOS and Glue Store. We made sure to include flares in a range of styles – whether you are looking for denim or something more soft and comfortable. Plus, we’ve also included some fashion inspiration so you know exactly how to wear and style them.
