This way to quite possibly the perfect pair of jeans...

A staple part of any woman's wardrobe, jeans will forever hold a place in our hearts. And with a new season on the horizon, it's time to start thinking about all that's new in the denim world, and the one thing we'll be investing in is the flare.

Put firmly back on the fashion map by those savvy street stylers, us fashion-folk couldn't be happier, as this is one trend we can all embrace.

Long-time flare lovers will already be wise to the joys of the wide-leg jean, and for those who count the skinny as an essential part of day-to-day dressing, here's why we'll be trading in those skin-tight styles, in favour of something a little looser.

Firstly, most versions come with a high-waist, which is pretty comfy, plus, will create an ultra-flattering silhouette.

Secondly, the only way to wear the flare is with a sky-high pair of heels. Adding some valuable inches to your height. Perfect.

Lastly, there is a reason this retro-style keeps coming back year after year, and it's pretty simple. The flare is just so cool.

We'll be getting our fix of the fancy flare by snapping up the latest version from MIH, The Marrakesh Jean In Nico Wash, £185.
