As we transition from summer to fall fashion, celebs are trading their cut-off jean shorts for elongating flare jeans and bell bottom jeans! Taking on the ’70s retro look, flare jeans were popularized by Sonny and Cher in the US when the couple wore them frequently on their TV show. The bell bottom jeans were then reintroduced in the ’90s, with the flare being slightly smaller at the ankle, under the name “bootcut.” Now, flare jeans are vogue once more, with stars like Kaia Gerber rocking the trend quite often!
Most recently, while spotted out holding hands with her new BF Jacob Elordi, Kaia opted for a pair of Celine Jane Flared Jeans. She paired the wide-leg pants with a black blazer from Frame (which is on sale now!) and a pair of Frye Veronica Combat Boots. The effortless look was the perfect transitional ensemble to go from the warm summer months into the crisp fall!
Kaia didn’t just have her flare jeans ready for fall, though! The model has worn this trend all year! Throughout the European fashion weeks in February, she wore an array of flare jeans, all making her model-long legs look even more gazelle-like. While prancing around Milan, Kaia opted for another pair of the Celine Mid-Rise Flare Jeans, which she paired with the brown suede Celine Tournon Jacket. We absolutely love how she made the overall look even more casual by wearing a pair of New Balance 990V5 Sneakers.
Then, back in the US, leaving the Coach show later that month, Kaia dressed up a pair of loose-fitting Loewe Flare Denim Trousers with the Reformation Nisa Bodysuit, topped with a gorgeous (and warm) Loewe Shearling Coat in a gold and white. We can’t wait to recreate this look this upcoming winter!
Kaia’s flare jeans brought her all the way to June, where she made the trend fit the season with a casual and cute twist! The model rocked a pair of Re/Done High Rise Medium Flare Jeans in a medium wash. She added a ribbed tank top by Re/Done, and topped it with an open cardigan by Brandy Melville. Then, Kaia finished off the look with a pair of ultra-comfy Tkees Leather Sandals and the adorable Celine Teen Triomphe Bag!
