    I think flares are quite unflattering tbh. But the fact that people seem to think it's becoming an 'in' thing means that after say 1 or 2 years, people will start loathing it as another 'trend' and will go back to other forms of jeans/trousers with a more natural shape. It looks a bit like duckfeet, except on legs.

    Edit: altough I believe that they are quite unflattering, it can look good on someone with thin legs and body structure. But I've only ever seen it look good once. And I'll admit, flares are slightly better than bootcut...

    I've never stopped wearing flares - in fact, I don't wear anything except flares.

    Thank god they're back, won't have to go 80 miles up north to find them lol.

    Flares look ridiculous. I'm sorry but they do. They make anybody who is wearing them look like they have tree stump for a leg. Do yourself a favour, and anybody who desires to wear something similar, wear bootcut. =)

    it's flares or skirts (because i can't find flares) for me.
    in the last year i've found one pair of nice flares and i'm lucky they were on offer or i'd never have been able to afford them.

    they seemed to be coming back because i saw a few pairs in highstreet shops but they were all really high waisted which sucks for a really short chubby person.

    i think they look better than skinnies on most people but i that the really wide ones do look ridiculous.

    Yeah, I'd never wear the 'baggy' version (you know, the ones you get in camden) but all my flares are skinny fit.

    And, for pear shaped women flares are a godsend. They balance out your shoulders, hips and legs. They shouldn't be shunned!

    Not once, did you say 'in my opinion' - you talk about it as if you're got a God given right to tell people how to dress. Jeez. You're entitled to your opinions, but your tone offends.

    I've got some lovely flares, but I know what you mean about them being unflattering. I call them my pjama pants, because they serve no other use than to be extremely comfortable. I love my straight legged jeans so much anyway!

    Flares suit me really well. I am guessing they didnt do the same for you

    I hope not, I hate them, but shops seem to be selling all kinds of jeans at the moment so I'm not too fussed.

    they're also a godsend for those of us who don't have little dainty feet, it's nice to hide them!

    In saying that, this ridiculous skinny jeans/converses/ballet pumps look has made me feel less weird cause it made everyone look like they had huge feet

    Just wanted to add, I am in love with my straight leg jeans (just for clarification NOT skinnies) and have size 8/9 feet, and I don't look as though I've got massive feet!

    But how you see yourself is of course altered to how the rest of yourself does. I'm not being rude, but unless you ridiculously tall and have a tiny frame (Ala Kate Moss and the likes) - they are not flattering.
