The controversial flare jeans. Love ’em or hate ’em, they are making a return and having an “it” moment.

We can’t help but notice they are signaling loud and clear: the 70’s are back for fashion. Bell bottoms, flare-leg, wide-leg — whatever your preference, they are quickly jumping on our radar.

Thanks to flare pioneer’s like Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine, we are seeing the trend spread like wild fire. We are partial to Leandra’s cut-off style of wide leg eye candy in all their unraveling denim glory.

Full length styles are also suitable when paired with a nice pair of clogs or open toed heels for summer. Maybe a wicker shoe for nostalgia sake?

Why stop at a pair of bell-bottoms? Try a jean or cotton vest over an awesome graphic tee. Top the look off with a fringe crossbody bag and you’re ready for Woodstock.

Will you try out this look over the summer?

Guess what’s back? The wide leg/bell bottom jeans are making a comeback!
