I know the idea of kick flare denim likely brings to mind some version of bell-bottoms that sound like a serious nightmare for anyone not built like Bella Hadid. But while kick flare does embody the bohemian spirit of bell bottoms, the profile is decidedly more modern and less dramatic. Like bell-bottoms, kick flare denim starts to widen just below the knee, though much more subtly, for a medium to slight flare (depending on the variation).
In the latest reincarnation of this trend, the flared leg is also cropped right above the ankle – the most flattering and leg elongating cut. Intrigued? Wondering how to pull it off? Look no further and draw your inspiration from our favourite looks below!
