Blast from the past! 

Typically paired with oversized sunglasses and towering heels, the flared denim trend is back in a major way thanks to the same leg-lengthening effect it granted women everywhere first in the ’70s and again in the ’90s.

In recent weeks, a slew of Hollywood’s finest have been spotted wearing the alternative to boyfriend jeans. Sporting new shoulder-length locks on Wednesday, April 1, in New York City, Chrissy Teigen was spotted in the Citizens of Humanity “Fleetwood High Rise Flare in Ritual,” ($228, John Legend‘s wife, 29, teamed the look with a honeycomb sweater and an oversized handbag

January Jones stepped into the trend on Friday, March 20, in Los Angeles with a pair by J Brand. The Mad Men star, 37, rocked the high-waisted look with a cheetah print coat and Blumarine sunglasses. Just a few days later on March 25, Amy Adams wore her flattering flares in Beverly Hills, with a plaid top and dark sunglasses.

Not sure of how to pull off the silhouette without looking like you’re stuck in the past? Celebrity stylist and Us Weekly Fashion Police contributor Eric Himel shows Us how with a few dos and don’ts.  

“Flared denim should always be worn just a quarter of an inch off the floor, otherwise, they become the definition of ‘floods,'” Himel told Us.

That’s not to say the look is ideal for all body types. “Classic hourglass shapes don’t do great with the silhouette,” Himel said. “If you have a straight up-and-down bottom portion, whether tall or short, you can definitely rock the look.” 

Those that are petite a la Lea Michele may require a boost. “If you’re short, definitely add a heel with a flared jean,” the stylist instructed.

And though Jones nailed it with an eye-catching jacket, Himel suggests paring back just a little for the rest of us. “Try a simple hoop earring, a stacked heel, or modern geometrical jewelry,” he advised.   

To keep the look from being overly trendy, Himel offers one final caveat: “Avoid anything that looks like you’re dressing for Coachella —unless you’re going to Coachella. So stay away from crochet tops, beaded jewelry, headbands, and Birkenstocks.”
