Flared trousers and jeans are popping up all over the runway for Fall/Winter 2015, and they have been the talk of the town on fashion sites these last few weeks. It’s fun to see how opinions on the “new flares” differ widely. Have a look:
- StyleCaster is including flared jeans in their “Month of Fashion Risks” series.
- The Guardian has an interesting photo essay about the history of flares.
- Flares are also making a comeback in menswear, with designers like Raf Simons, Gucci, and Valentino sending models down the runway sporting the look for Fall/Winter 2015.
- The Guardian columnist Hadley Freeman clearly isn’t a fan.
- Meanwhile, five members of The Telegraph’s fashion team share their thoughts on how to style the new flares.
