Bye Bye Skinny Jeans, Hello Flares!
Celebs are turning their backs on straight-leg jeans in favor of roomier flares. How should you wear this trend?
The '70's are back in a big way this spring – and so are retro-inspired flare jeans. That's right, let's bid adieu to those super-tight skinny jeans and let our legs breathe a little as the temps heat up.
Hold up, style queens: Don't take the spring's '70's vibe too literally – otherwise, you'll look more dated than mirrored ceilings and disco balls. Instead, style your flares with structure like these celebs for a vintage look that's fresh and chic.
Former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole paired her high-waisted flare jeans with a fitted -- and sexy -- top during a recent night out in London. The top's fit is a good contrast to the wide-legged jeans -- and the high-waist makes her legs look miles long.

Actress Eva Mendes made the trek through LAX in her dark denim flares with a loose top and scarf. The perfect flying outfit -- casual yet pulled together.
Brazillian supermodel Giselle Bundchen was spotted with a friend outside an L.A. eatery sporting dark flared jeans, white top, jacket and scarf. A structured jacket brings the retro look right in 2011 with ease.
Kate Moss' floor-skimming flares both make her legs look longer and slimmer (is that even possible?!) The casual top is perfect for weekend brunch or errands, but take our advice -- wear a bra when it's chilly!
