With each passing decade, we incorporate new pieces and silhouettes seamlessly into the "Classic Style" category without much ado. What was once just a trend has become a classic. I remember when, in the 1990s, the major flared leg of the '70s returned to fashion for the first time since its origin. It wasn't considered a classic just yet, but more of a throwback to the late 1960s and 1970s style. Now that a version of flared leg jeans have returned to fashion two or three times over since the '90s, they have earned their Classic Style status, and rightfully so. However, be it collegiate prep, bohemian, rock star cool, laid back style, or working girl, flare leg jeans still tend to look best when paired with a pinch of their own era thrown in for good measure (think Jackie O). Here are 7 ways I wear my favorite flares.
