Bell-bottoms revisited

The retro shape from the 20s, 30s and 70s is back with a bang

If we opened your denim drawer right now, we bet we could guess some of the key silhouettes stored inside – straight-leg jeans, skinnies, and perhaps even an off-the-moment outlier like those “grandpa” cuts. But what’s one style that probably hasn’t surfaced to the top of the pile as much as of late? Bell-bottoms. Well, get ready – as we continue to see on the streets and among the A-listers, bell-bottoms are officially back and will continue to hold strong through 2021. To highlight the look further, we broke down how the bell-bottom trend is taking over the celeb world for you below.

We’d describe this silhouette featuring iconic bell-bottom jeans and that pleated sleeves blouse with a bandana band on the head as "classic with a twist."

Love skinnies but want to try bell-bottoms? Take cue from Sumbul here and go for a skinny-bell style for a happy medium. Just pair it with an off-shoulder top and you’re good to go.

Embroidered bell-bottoms are the most playful way to lean into those 70s throwback vibes. Paired with a silk button up shirt and funky accessories, this look makes us want to dig out our old bells.

We have a feeling that floor sweeping denim bell-bottoms like this will stay "in" for seasons to come. Just pair them with a lower heel to keep the silhouette long and cool.

Maya Ali is teaching us a major bell-bottoms lesson here: A perfect bell-bottom should be fitted at the knees and then flare out a little. To amp up this look, garb in a vibrant top.
