If yes, what do you wear with them?

If no, whats stopping you?

I have one light blue pair of Levi's flare jeans (they're women's but nobody can tell) and I wear them with a black leather jacket, a blank t shirt and leather boots.

All of my jeans are flares or boot cut, I dont do straight or peg legs, not very stylish.

I wear mine with tank tops, tee shirts, dress shirts, heels, boots, casual shoes you name it. Jeans go with most everything......enjoy the possibilities.

I don't own one pair of jeans, never mind flares. Actually I don't own any trousers , period as I find them incredibly uncomfortable and prefer skirts and dresses.


I must admit I find flares hideous, they remind me of the 70s , a period which to me style and taste forgot. I like tapered trousers much better.

Yes. I pretty much wear whatever I want with it, it could be a baggy shirt or a tight shirt, long or short. It could be a swim-suit top in the summer.

I have a pair of 7's I picked up second hand (because designer jeans are usually longer and I'm too cheap to pay full price for them) and they're more than flares, they are bellbottoms. I like them, but I do find them hard to match with a top. Something too flowy makes me look like I'm drowning in fabric but something too tight has a weird grown-up-child-at-the-roller-disco feel to it.

I haven't worn flared or bell bottom jeans since elementary school, ( the 70's). Not my style today. I decided to get into skinny jeans for a time.

Flares shorten my legs and just look silly on me. I stick with skinnys, slight bootcut and straitleg.

I think what you wear with the jeans depends on your shape. But you need to have the wide bottom balanced out with something on top that makes the visual top to bottom line flow.

All of my jeans are either flares or bells. I don't like the straight leg/skinny look because it makes me look like I have toothpicks for legs and a huge ass. In reality, I have no ass - no matter how much I work out and lift and tone that 'thang. I'm just one of those skinny white girls with a flat butt. I would NOT be featured in a Sir Mix-A-Lot video. But I could be featured in one of those videos where some chick is crawling all over the hood of a car.

Flares is just a fancy name for bell bottoms. They were ugly in the 70s and theyre still ugly today. That and when you walk it sounds like someone is walking behind you.
