When it comes to summertime dressing, pants are probably the last thing on your mind. But, before any naysayers write off an entire clothing category for the time being, there's one '70s revival that may sway you back to team pants. Enter, the flare trouser. We get that diving into the uncharted waters of wide-legged bell-bottoms can strike fear in even the daring fashion folk among us. But, skipping out on this flattering throwback would be just plain wrong. Not only is the loose silhouette a comfy upgrade from the tight, calf-hugging styles we've been relying on for the past decade, but that breathable factor is just what you'll want for sticky summer months.

To help you work the trend into your rotation, senior style editor Annie Georgia Greenberg took recent arrivals from Simon Malls stores and cooked up three outfits with summer's token silhouette. Watch on for proof that you don't have to go full flower-power to nail the look.
