Why are they trending?
Thanks to Tik Tok the rediscovery of past trends has become the norm. There is one problem, Tik Tokers are rebranding this trend as flare leggings instead of the tried and true yoga pants. This seems to have stirred the pot for those who encountered the trend when it originated. Nonetheless, flare leggings are back and boosting serotonin for everyone.
What are flare leggings?
Whether you call them flare leggings or yoga pants, being comfortable and trendy are a couple of the many things you will accomplish by wearing these pants. These pants are perfect for lounging around or hitting the town, they look like normal leggings until the bottom where they give out. Some even add a little extra spice by splitting down the middle. The goal is to look cute at the gym, on the couch or at brunch all while still feeling comfortable.
How to wear them?
Flared leggings can be as dressy or casual as you want. For a casual look, throw on an oversized vintage sweatshirt with a pair of platform sneakers. To dress it up, pair your new favorite pants with a button-up and a pair of chunky boots. Accessorize to your heart's content and your look will be complete and perfect to cover your legs in the chilly fall weather.
