Victoria Beckham loves trousers — wide-leg, front-slit, oversized, you name it, she's probably worn them. She also likes pencil skirts, and she seems to be fond of elegant suits, too. And while we see the designer less frequently in low-key looks, when we do, we're all ears — especially when it's Beckham in jeans!

The designer recently spilled the beans on her favorite jeans, and we're actually not that surprised by her pick. Spoiler alert: They're flares! Beckham loves anything with a little extra volume around the leg (ehem, like these wide-leg trousers), so her fondness for flared jeans makes a lot of sense.

Beckham styles her flared jeans with a simple sweater, proving that a stylish fall look doesn't have to be complicated. And while we're not sure which shoes she wore (the hemline covered those), we'd bet it was probably some sort of pump, because heels make flares look 10-times better.

Beckham's flared jeans were courtesy of her eponymous brand, Victoria Beckham. They have a true blue wash, a low-rise cut, and an extra long hemline that grazes the floor. In fact, they look just like the jeans this writer wore nonstop during her middle and high school years — fitting given the fact that some of those classic trends from the 2000s are making a big comeback right now.

Flares are one bygone trend experiencing a renaissance, and yes, we're totally on board. Flares are fun! They're flirty! They give an outfit a lot more dimension than a pair of skinnies. But don't take that as us being anti-skinny jeans. We love skinnies just as much as Kate Middleton does, but there's just something about flares — maybe the sass or maybe the nostalgia — that makes one feel kinda, sorta invincible when wearing them.

While Beckham's exact jeans are sold out, there's no shortage of similar options available online. Brands like 7 For All Mankind, Etica, Mother, and Madewell have perfected the formula for the perfect pair of flares. The secret? It's one part a good wash, one part a stretchy yet flattering fabric, and one part a billowy hemline.

If you're not feeling your skinnies, but you're also not ready to commit to the big, baggy wide-leg jeans that Katie Holmes loves, Beckham-approved flares are for you. Shop some of our favorites below.
