The so-called flared pants are named after the trouser legs are shaped like horns. Its characteristics are: low waist, short crotch, tightly wrapped around the hips; the trouser legs are narrow at the top and wide at the bottom, gradually opening from below the knee. The size of the trouser opening is obviously larger than the size of the knee, forming a flared shape. In terms of structural design, on the basis of trousers, the rise is slightly shorter, and the amount of hip relaxation is appropriately reduced, so that the hips and mid-crotch (near the knee) will fit and fit, and the trousers will be enlarged from under the knees as needed.
According to the degree of enlargement of the trouser opening, the flared pants can be divided into big flared pants, small flared pants and mini flared pants. The trouser opening of the mini-flared trousers can generally cover most of the upper, and the trouser opening of the small flared is slightly larger, about 25-30 cm, which can just completely cover the upper. Some of the flared trousers are more than 50 cm tall, and they look like a broom sweeping the floor after wearing them.
Flared pants are said to be the invention of Western sailors. The sailor was working on the deck, because the sea water easily splashed into the boot, so he thought of this way to change the shape of the trousers, wide trousers to cover the boot, so as not to splash in. It became a fashion in the United States in 1960. Later, “Elvis Presley” pushed the flared pants to the pinnacle of fashion, and then spread to Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan. With the popularity of Japanese, Hong Kong and Taiwan movies in mainland China, they have swept the mainland.
