NordstromOne item you'll definitely want to add to your wardrobe this spring is a pair of wide-leg jeans -- and the hottest version going right now is the flare.

This simple switch from skinny jeans will have you looking totally on-trend.

And to be honest, on most of us, flares and wide-leg jeans are way more flattering than skinny jeans, particularly in warmer weather when boots are an impossibility.

SCORE.

Nordstrom is featuring this fabulous $205 pair of MOTHER flare leg jeans in its February catalog, but if you don't have $200 to drop on jeans right now, never fear!

I've got some far more affordable flare leg options for you after the jump!

 

 

 

 

 

 

GapYour best bet for the money would likely be these Gap flare leg jeans (Gap, $69.50), which come in a few different washes. Gap is always having sales, so keep these in mind, and when you see a good sale, snap them up!

 

MadewellYou know I'm coveting these Vintage Rocker Jeans (Madewell, $110), which are more expensive, but still in a doable range.


Calvin KleinThese Straight Flare Jeans (Calvin Klein, $49.50) are a great way to rock the look on a budget.

 

PiperlimeLike wearing heels with your jeans? These Sold High Heeled Flares (Piperlime, $118) are the way to go.

 

Victoria's SecretVictoria's Secret gives the trend a sexy spin with these Blue London Belle Flares (Victoria's Secret, $69.50). Although the model's leg looks weirdly hyperextended to me ...

 

J BrandAnd finally, my pick for those lucky few of you who aren't on a budget are these J. Brand Kiki High-Rise Flare Jeans (Saks Fifth Avenue, $203).

What do you think about the new flare jeans?

i like them but i cant wear them. Im only 5 feet tall so for  one I would have to find flares in a size "short" and that wont happen. secondly, i have a very short torso so any type of pant that is suppose to go up to your belly buttong is going to look like Urkle Wearon me. I think they are great if youre at least 5'7"   :-)

 I always wear boot cut or slight flare anyway.  The super flare is a bit much for me personally.
