Victoria Beckham loves pants – wide leg, slit front, oversized, you name it, she probably wore them. She also loves pencil skirts and also seems to love stylish suits. And while we see the designer in understated looks less often, when we do, we’re all ears, especially when it comes to Beckham in jeans!
The designer recently spilled the wick on her favorite jeans, and we’re actually not that surprised with her choice. Spoiler alert: These are flares! Beckham likes everything with a little extra volume around the leg (ehem, like those wide leg pants), so her penchant for flared jeans makes a lot of sense.
Beckham pairs her flared jeans with a simple sweater, proving that a sleek fall look doesn’t have to be complicated. And while we don’t know what shoes she was wearing (the hem covered them), we’re betting it was probably some kind of pump, because heels make flares 10 times more beautiful.
Beckham’s flare jeans were courtesy of his eponymous label, Victoria Beckham. They have a true blue wash, a low rise fit and an extra long hem that hugs the floor. In fact, they look like the jeans this writer wore nonstop during her college and high school days, which is fitting given that some of those classic 2000s trends are making a big comeback right now.
Flares are a bygone trend that is experiencing a renaissance, and yes, we’re totally on board. Flares are fun! They are dredgers! They give an outfit much more dimension than a skinny one. But don’t think of it as anti-skinny jeans. We love skinnies as much as Kate Middleton, but there’s just something about flares – maybe the sass or maybe the nostalgia – that makes you feel a little, sort of invincible when we wear them.
While Beckham’s exact jeans are sold out, there is no shortage of similar options available online. Brands like 7 For all mankind, Etica, Mother, and Madewell have come up with the formula for the perfect pair of flares. The secret? This is a part of a good wash, part of a stretchy yet flattering fabric, and part of a puffy hem.
If you don’t feel your skinnies, but you’re also not ready to engage in the wide, baggy jeans that Katie Holmes adores, Beckham-approved flare flares are for you. Shop a few of our favorites below.
