Bell Bottom Love

I have never gotten over my love of Bell Bottoms. Though Skinny Jeans have their appeal (on some...), to me, nothing is sexier, chicer or bolder than a small waist, big bum and a huge flare leg.













What do you think about bell bottoms? Outdated or Underrated?

Outdated in my book, but I still love seeing it on other girls. The 2ND & 3RD girl, I wish that was me...I still remember my first pair of bell bottoms, in 3RD grade, plain blue once from A&S (which is gone) at Manhattan Mall, totally remember that day, I was beyond excited.

Last year at Old Navy tried some on, those were SUPER flared, just no on me. I think you need to have major height to wear them.

I never wear them anymore, but I do love the bottom pair. there's something to be said about incorporating them into office wear, it definitely adds a bit of sex appeal.

Where jeans are concerned though I'm a definite skinny jeans convert! (Maybe because I'm really small and they add a bit of length)

Some bell bottoms I love!!! I like an in the middle type of flare out. How about boot cut jeans? LOL I have to admit that most of my jeans now are skinny jeans. Except for one pair of bell bottoms that I just won't give up!

Megan said...

I really love bell bottoms. They are flattering on almost all figures which I love, and they add a hint of playfulness to any outfit. xo

I love bellbottoms! I kinda felt really sad when skinnies got into fashion and stayed. Flares are so much fun

Maybe id appreciate them more if i had any butt at all, but i have a flatter then flat behind. I love my skinny jeans soooo much that I dont know if I have room in my life for anything else. That said my legs are so much skinnier then the rest of me, maybe bell bottoms would even me out :/ hmmm, something for me to ponder.

Ooo, I love those in the 3rd from the bottom picture! I haven't tried the skinny jeans trend and likely won't. I'll take a good pair of flared jeans and heels any day. :) Glad you're back; missed your posts last week. Hope you had a great weekend!

Underrated. I absolutely LOVE them - especially with huge, chunky platforms. Sadly, I can never find a pair that fits me correctly - I'm only 5'1! :P

Jessica Wray said...

I dig them. I have a hard time finding ones that look right on me though... I'm only 5 feet tall so they're usually way too long and begin to bell at an awkward point... hemming just makes it worse.

I wanna see you in a pair! - rock 'em girl.

<3 bellbottoms! I'm more of a "flare" type of girl, but that's just because I'm not too bold in my fashion.

I live in skinny jeans so I pass on these

I'm too short to pull them off but I have fond memories of wearing them in my 'tweens' I had a purple denim pair and I LOVED them..

unfortunately here we have girls we call 'station rats' who are really trashy and they wear old bell bottoms with baggy mens sweatshirts and their greasy hair and a slick pony tail, so everything associated with that look is to be avoided by all other Aussie's at all times.. don't you hate it when a small group ruin it for the majority??

Well..I love anything worn by Kelly! She has amazing style and while I can't pull off very wide legged bell bottoms I love them!

Naghmeh said...

I love bell bottoms, they remind me of the sepia toned and black and white photos of my very stylish mom we have from when she was my age :) I think they look so sexy with pointy heels or wedges! Since I have skinnier legs, skinny jeans work better for my body but I still try to rock the bell bottoms sometimes!

Love 'em!!!! I haven't owned any in years but I'd love some (when I'm done with my spending diet, eep). I think because I have a thick butt/hips I'd have to wear some super long ones with some way tall shoes :)

CutestPrincess said...

i love bell bottom pants, but it's hard to find one, now!

It’s a GIRL Thing

Elle Sees said...

Of course I would love them if I was skinny minny

this free bird said...

No big bums for me, thanks. But I will take a bell bottom any day of the week!

drollgirl said...

i love them!

i CANNOT do the skinny jean thing -- i just can't! but i love wide legged and bell bottom pants when they are done right!

Mandy @ In the Fashion Lane said...

I LOOOOVVVVEEEEE Bell Bottoms too! I don't wear them nearly enough. I think my skinnies are more flattering at the moment! Love the pics!
