If you were a teenager in the ’90s or ’00s, then you’ll instantly recognize the latest trend that Gen Z is going crazy for — flared leggings — or, as we called them back then, yoga pants.
Flared leggings are exactly what they sound like — they’re typical leggings that go out at the bottom instead of hugging your legs down to your ankle. Perfect for lounging around, low-impact workouts and more, it’s no surprise that this trend is back. And with straight jeans coming back into style, it was only a matter of time until this particular cut made its way into activewear wardrobes.
These leggings are also trending on TikTok. From try-on hauls to styling videos, users can’t seem to get over how cute and versatile the style is. TikTok user @wydstephbohrer shared in her video, “These leggings are the best thing that TikTok ever convinced me to buy.” User @tayhage showed how she wore flare leggings six different ways and called herself a “huge fan of this trend.”
Luckily, this fad is super easy to be a part of. Retailers like Aerie, Lululemon and more have several pairs for sale, as does one of the retailers that made flared leggings popular back in the day with its foldover designs, Victoria’s Secret.
