A Flare to Remember

I think by now we are all aware that the 70s is huge for the upcoming spring/summer, fall/winter seasons. If you have been following all the fall '15 shows then you definitely know that it is the biggest trend on the runways right now. With the 1970s trend comes flare jeans. Flare jeans otherwise known as bell-bottoms were first adopted in 1813 by the U.S Navy. In the mid 19th century the British Royal Navy made bell-bottoms part of their official uniform. In the mid 1960s flared jeans become popular for both men and women in Europe and North America. In '67 the jeans moved from the high fashion scene to part of the hippie movement. Flared jeans became chic again in the 1970s and were bigger than ever. In 1996 the flare jeans were re-introduced to the fashion scene as boot cut jeans which are very similar to flare jeans but with a much narrower leg opening. Boot cut jeans were popular until 2006 when skinny jeans took over. 

2015 marks the rise of the flare and the fall of the skinny.
