How to Wear Flare Leggings

November 30, 2022

Flare leggings, aka yoga pants for those of us who lived through the earlier stage of this trend, are all over right now! I don’t know about you, but I am loving them! They are really fun and super comfy! I was on a major search for how to wear flare leggings and the best pairs, and I wanted to share my findings with you today!

The Best Flare Leggings

Today I am wearing the lululemon grove on flare pants and another split hem pair actually from Zara. You can shop the lululemon pair here and here. I tried on SOOOO MANY pairs. Ha! At 5’10 I had and unusually hard time finding a pair that was actually long enough. If you are shorter than me, I would recommend Gap or Old Navy. Aerie also has a good pair, but it has a crossover waist. For me this meant I couldn’t wear shorter tops without showing my stomach.

How to Wear Flare Leggings

Now let’s talk about how to wear flare leggings! Honestly, I recommend just thinking of them like a regular legging when you are trying to style them. Right now the trend is to wear a cropped vest with flares just as much as it is to wear a longer, more oversized sweatshirt. I paired mostly tennis shoes here, but I have an order placed for the Amazon version of the Ultra Mini Uggs which I cannot wait to get!

1. Try a Vest

I did the “bra tuck” with my sweatshirt here and layered this really fun cropped puffer vest from Amazon over. I love the end result! I’ve worn this combo several times in real life. My vest is one I have been loving! It may look familiar as I just shared it with my wide leg jeans on this post.

2. Jean Jacket

I layered my lululemon scuba hoodie (Amazon dupe details here) and my jean jacket for this look. I love the outcome! It’s easy yet polished some something I would totally wear with leggings.

3. Oversized Sweatshirt

Everything doesn’t have to be cropped and fitted! Here I paired my flare leggings with my oversized sweatshirt. This is such a comfy and cute look too!

4. Tunic Sweater

The next few looks are with my split hem pants. My exact pair is from Zara, but I am linking some similar options. I love these because they feel just like leggings but somehow look a little nicer almost like a black pant. You can dress them up with my favorite Amazon tunic last seen with leggings here.

5. Vest

I loved adding my vest over my leggings! This was a look that was probably most out of my comfort zone but the one I ended up really liking so much! I love when you get in your closet and play around with things to come up with new outfits!

6. Pair with a Shacket

Last but not least in my list of how to wear flare leggings is to pair with a shacket! I LOVE shackets and have amassed quite a collection. This bright blue sherpa might be my favorite yet though. It (or any other) is perfect to pair with your flare leggings.

I'm obsessed with this bright blue shacket!
