the flares got so ridiculously huge... we always used to get friends to step on the dragging raggy ends when we were walking to rip them off.

yupp, those were the days. Only the coolest people had the really big ones. I'm kinda glad they're gone, they just looked sloppy.

i hated it when people would step all over the bottom and theres this huge hole on the bottom, annoyed me so much.

I still wear them all the time. My mom complains when the bottems of them get messed up, but I like them like that. Makes them look so... anti-normal. So anti-perfect.

Flare jeans are the most hideous and ungodly creations to ever afflict this earth. People who wear them look like clowns, I am SOO glad they aren't quite as common anymore. Unfortunately, people still do wear them, though. Lots of people do, actually.

I remember for Christmas, thats all I asked for was flare legged jeans. I think Mudd measured the flare in inches and I asked for all different sizes. On Christmas morning, all my parents had bought were boot legged jeans. I was so mad I wouldnt come out of my room until they exchanged them.

I remember nearly every girl in my school wearing them during the late 90s while in middle school.

I would get mine at the army navy store, some had some HUGE flares, and draw on them....I absolutely HATE skinny jeans, nobody looks good in them! Gimme my bells and flares!
Tara - February 01, 2010 - Report this comment
OMG! I had at least five pairs of these!!!! Back then it was soo cool to wear them but now if you wear them, you're looked at weird. how sad. I miss the 90's!
Nicki - February 23, 2010 - Report this comment
OMG, I still wear and LOVE flare jeans! that's all anybody who was cool wore in the late 90's/early 2000's. I absolutely despise the ugly skinny jean trend and can't wait until it dies down. Nobody looks good in dorky tapered jeans! Flares are the best, Old Navy and Gap among others still make 'em so they can't be that bad.

Flare jeans were the best invention of the 90's. If low-rise flares hadn't been invented we'd all still be wearing mom jeans. If you don't believe me, check out what the female cast of 90210 wore from 90-96. Now that was hideous. Skinnies are OK, but I still love flares. Not 90's huge flares, but a slight flare in a dark wash with heels really lengthens the legs. Flares forever!

I think flare jeans are absolutely ridiculous and shuldn't be worn by anyone who has common sense. I think skinny jeans are the best. :)

I personally think Flare jeans and skinny jeans are kind of the same! I mean THEY ARE JEANS! Lol. I loved flare jeans as I was little but as I started to grow up I liked skinny jeans. Its just really your personality!

Were flare jeans the equivalent to 70s bell-bottoms?
Dean - January 15, 2011 - Report this comment
Yes, flared jeans were the equivalent of 70s bellbottoms, often cut exactly the same way. And in the 70s, we had jeans called flared jeans too, cut exactly the same way, only in the 70s both men and women wore them in exactly the same style. In the 90s, women wore them almost exclusively, except in really trendy places like London where you'd see men in them too. A lot of 90s styles were all about reviving the 70s.

Ah, yes, flare jeans. I don't really remember these coming out till the mid-late 90's, at least where I live. Honestly, I have a big a$$, and the flare kinda balances out my shape a little. I can't do the skinny jean thing, I look like something the 80's threw up on (I wouldn't do them anyway, I think there kinda gay, ESPECIALLY on men, lol!) I do remember cutting the seams on the sides of my pants to add fabric so they became flares before flares were available. :) I still wear flares, but of course they aren't as huge as they once were.I'm old now (30, that's pretty old in 90's years, lol!) and I gravitate towards the grunge fashion in my old age...loose, worn in, comfy, ahhhh.....
