Remember a few years ago when skinny jeans were everywhere? Well, that time has come and gone, as so many celebrities have tucked the trend away (for now) and are opting for a looser, retro look instead.

That's right, '70-inspired flare and wide-leg jeans are sweeping through Hollywood once again, with plenty of stars wearing them on repeat in recent months. While out for a coffee run in New York City, Jennifer Lawrence wore wide-leg denim with sandals and a cropped black top. Jennifer Lopez also tapped the wide-leg style, pairing it with a navy top (and pink stilettos, for that matter). And both Kendall Jenner and Miranda Kerr opted for some flared denim earlier this fall.

So, why is Hollywood obsessed with wide-leg and flare jeans this season? Our best guess is that these retro-style trends are ultra-flattering and comfortable. Flare jeans tend to be tighter at the top yet become wider at the bottom to form a bell-like shape that adds length to your legs. Wide-leg jeans also enhance your shape, but they're slightly looser at the thigh for more comfort.

Whether you choose to wear them with comfy sneakers and cozy sweaters or combat boots and silky blouses, wide-leg and flare jeans are two trends that are here to stay through winter — and we found a ton of options that are on sale at Madewell, Nordstrom, and Amazon ahead of Black Friday.
