As the seasons change, so do the denim styles that reign supreme. While skinny jeans were everyone’s go-to for years, flare jeans have officially replaced them in 2021. Honestly, good riddance! I am stoked to buy flare jeans this season because they look amazing on so many different body types. Case in point: I scoured the web for the best plus-size flare jeans and rounded up my favorite pairs to share with you.

Let’s get one thing out of the way: These ain’t your mamma’s flare jeans! What’s old is new again in 2021—And that means that the ‘70s are back in full force right now. Thanks to the rise of curtain bangs and far-out floral patterns over the last few months, it’s safe to say that everyone will be channeling Farrah Fawcett this season. And tell me: What’s more quintessentially ‘70s than a pair of super-flared jeans? I’ll wait—The answer is nothing.

If you’re not sure about how to style your flares IRL, I’ve got you covered. Try wearing them with a pair of high-top white sneakers for an easy everyday outfit, or pair them with some chunky platform sandals for your next date night or girls’ night out. They’re surprisingly so versatile, so I highly recommend buying a pair for yourself and trying out all of the different sartorial possibilities.

I’m also happy to report that shopping for plus-size denim isn’t what it used to be. Brands like Warp + Weft, Eloquii and Torrid are all making stylish (and, in most cases, affordable) jeans that come in a wide range of sizes. Read on to see 10 of the cutest pairs of plus-size flare jeans to buy now and wear forever.
