Despite our love for embracing the major fashion trends that were cool Back In the Day™, we have to admit that we were a little hesitant when we heard that flare jeans are making a comeback. And not just flare jeans, but light wash flare jeans. Seriously, how is this real life? They give us such horrifying flashbacks to middle school and graphic tees, which are clearly not shirt we would rock nowadays. And we refuse to say goodbye to our beloved skinny jeans! But if anyone was going to convince us to give light wash flare jeans a try, it’s Gigi Hadid, our undeniable fashion icon for all things cozy and classy.

Parker Smith, a pretty major denim brand based in downtown Los Angeles shared this ridiculously chic pic of Gigi Hadid rocking their light wash flare jeans, and we have MAJOR heart eyes happening right now.

They captioned the photo,

Naturally, we had to do some digging to find out how to make these jeans happen in our own lives!

So let’s see. The Parker Smith Jeans Gigi rocks, the light wash flare, are actually pretty darn stylish. They’re high-waisted — phew — which gives ’em a modern twist. Plus, the flare isn’t so extreme that it gives us flashbacks to mom’s ’70s style (love you, mom!).

See? These are definitely a great way to ease into the trend.

The main thing that convinced us to give these a try, though, is this booty action. The high waist to these ~fancy~ jeans definitely adds a little bit of lift, and makes our legs look super long, which is pretty cool.

These honestly look *so* wearable! We’re getting some good vibes from these pants, if that’s possible.
