THE ON-TREND FLARED JEANS
It’s the key denim silhouette for spring. The Guardian’s fashion editor Jess Cartner-Morley explains why these high-waisted Limited Edition flares are a must for the season ahead
Sometimes, when you feel like your wardrobe has lost its way, all it takes to get you back on track is the right pair of jeans. Great denim has been a shortcut to instant cool since the Fifties, and nothing says effortless modern style quite like it. This spring, the key silhouette to covet has changed for the first time in a decade. The look? A slim fit from waist to knee, fluting into a gentle flare and cropped at the ankle. After 10 years of skinny jeans, such a dramatic change may seem a little scary, but as soon as you try on your first pair of flares and discover how flattering they are, you’ll be sold.
