Styling Inspo For Flare Leggings
From Emma Chamberlain to Emily Ratajkowski and Hailey Bieber, it-girls from all walks of life are rushing to embrace flared leggings but if you’re not sure how to adopt this on-trend style, don’t stress - team HyperLuxe has you covered.
The perfect blend of a figure-flattering retro silhouette with the comfortable fabrication we’ve come to expect of modern athleisure apparel, flared leggings are back in the spotlight thanks to a rising interest in iconic Y2K fashion styles.
Alongside low rise jeans, statement tops and butterfly hair clips, plus a refreshed enthusiasm for The Spice Girls, flared leggings are being welcomed back into wardrobes the world over, and we couldn’t be more thrilled about the Y2K fashion renaissance!
Flaring out from the knees, rather than being form fitting from top to bottom like a regular pair of leggings, the hourglass silhouette offered by flared leggings suits a range of different body types, which is bound to make them one of the most popular activewear trends for 2023.
While they have a very different silhouette to traditional leggings, flared leggings are just as versatile as the form fitting leggings we all know and love, and can be styled up just as easily, which makes them a must have wardrobe building block.
How to wear flare leggings
Whether styled with an oversized jumper or hoodie (like the HyperLuxe Logo Embroidered Hooded Sweatshirt in Grey Marle), or a body con top (such as the Leelo Active Sculpt Tee in Charcoal), flared leggings complement any (and every!) fit.
Available in tones ranging from charcoal grey to slate, espresso and black, Leelo Active’s Sculpt Flare Leggings are shaping up to be one of the most popular items instore and online at HyperLuxe this year, and there's a good reason why!
In addition to absolutely nailing the proportions of the flare silhouette, these buttery soft leggings boast a high tapered waistband that won’t roll down when you squat or jump, which makes them perfect for active adventures, whether that’s in the gym, at a pilates studio or out in nature.
Guaranteed to keep undesired camel toes at bay, thanks to a clever design that doesn’t incorporate a front seam, the Leelo Active Sculpt Flare Leggings are also ideal for lounging, running errands or even for wearing out and about after dark for dinner with friends.
Another of our favourite HyperLuxe brands that has embraced the flared legging silhouette is Nimble. Passionate about activewear that fuses sustainability with style, Nimble’s take on flared leggings hug your body in all the right places.

Available in sizes XS to XL, the In Motion Flare Pant comes in a gorgeous Cloud colourway, a tone which exudes quiet luxury and understated elegance. Everyone who tries on Nimble’s In Motion Flare Pant raves about how chic and comfortable they are, so do yourself a favour and come slip into a pair today!
What shoes to wear with flared leggings?
A common pain point for newcomers wanting to incorporate flared leggings into their wardrobe is not knowing which shoes to style with this on-trend silhouette. But there’s no need to overthink it; most footwear styles work well with flares.
For daytime wear, finesse your flared leggings fit with your favourite pair of chunky sneakers (we’re utterly obsessed with the Hoka W Bondi 8 Sneaker in pure white) or a classic pair of Birkenstocks, either with or without the HyperLuxe High Crew Sock.
Heading out to dinner with friends and want to remain comfortable as well as look chic? Transition your flare leggings from day to night with the help of a stylish crop and an oversized blazer or shirt.
Experts at designing activewear that doesn’t only belong at the gym, we love how Leelo Active’s Halter Neck Crop in black looks when styled with their Sculpt Flare Leggings, finished off with an oversized shirt such as the Blanca Knox Stripes Shirt in Blue or the Caroline Shirt in Sage.
The key to ensuring your flared leggings look evening appropriate is to accessorise. The addition of some chunky statement jewels, such as the Luv AJ Rosette Coil Charm Hoops in Gold or a stack of the Arms of Eve Amari bracelets, is a sure-fire way to seamlessly incorporate flares into your evening outfit rotation.
Keep the after dark vibes going from head to toe by applying your favourite red lipstick and ditching your sneakers or Birks in favour of strappy heels or the Nude Lucy Classic Leather Slide in black, bone or soot.
