I have spotted several shops that are beginning to sell flared jeans and what better way to rock the 70’s trend than bell-bottoms, right? I love everything about bell bottoms at the moment. It’s the perfect style for short-legged girls who want their legs to appear miles long!
Though purchasing bell bottoms on a shopping spree is one thing, but figuring out how to style them can be troubling. I have put together 4 easy ways in which you can style bell bottoms depending on the occasion and style you want to go for. I have incorporated bohemian, denim and the grunge-inspired styles, which are all major trends this season. Be aware, that you might want to to keep your skinnies in your closet for this season.
It’s all about that flare!
HOW TO ROCK BELL BOTTOMS THIS SEASON:
1. CASUAL DENIM
Denim is big for fall. Everything from denim overalls to all-denim outfits – you don’t want to miss out on this trend. Incorporating a pair of denim bootcut jeans will make your outfit pop compared to your regular pair of skinnies. Plus, it will make your legs appear longer than they really are.
You want to pair your flared jeans with pieces that do not take away the focus of your statement jeans. A neutral colored crop top or a tucked-in shirt or sweater are perfect pieces that will make your outfit seem relaxed yet well-put together. Stock up on accessories like cool sunglasses and belts, and wear shoes with a bit of heel to make you look extra tall.
2. PATTERNED BOHEMIAN
The ‘Glamourous bohemian’ was one of major trends throughout runway shows for the NYFW A/W 2015. Bohemian patterns on bell bottoms are fun and fit perfectly to the 70’s trend! To rock patterned bell bottoms for fall, try finding pants with subtly patterns that does not scream ‘summer’. You can make the outfit more fall-ish by pairing the bottoms with a fringe jacket and a hat. If you want to go for a fancier look, try finding vintage statement belts that will fit to the bohemian style.
3. URBAN CHIC
Work the urban chic look by combining clean contrast colors such as, black and white or blue and black, to make you look effortless chic. Try combining different textures such as wool and leather to make the outfit look well put together. A great trend to combine bell bottoms with is the cape/poncho trend that is hot for fall season. You can never go wrong with a statement cape and your favorite pair of flared bottoms. This will make the perfect office look.
Plaids are another major it-pattern for fall, so why not combine that with flared pants, for a Oxford chic look ? If you decide to put together an outfit with plaided flared pants, keep in mind that you want these to be your statement piece, meaning that you want to keep the rest of the outfit subtly, yet interesting by mixing in different textures and colors.
4. THE GRUNGE-INSPIRED
Chokers, John Lennon sunglasses and velvet. The grunge-inspired look fits perfectly with the 70’s fashion. For this look you can go all out with the crops, hairstyles and bold colors. Go for a strong makeup look with bold lips, and don’t forget to stock up on lots of interesting accessory pieces. A leather jacket is a must for rocking this look!
