Women's bell bottoms and flare jeans are tight to the knee and then flare out to the hem. There has been a return of bell bottom and flared jean styles recently and in contrast to the super skinny jeans that limited quite a few women, there has been a sigh of relief from women everywhere.
Yes, it's OK to pull out your bell bottom jeans in a world of skinny jeans. In fact, pull them out and let your ankles enjoy a break from all of the strangulation.
Flared and bell bottoms are typically more flattering on taller, slimmer women. Too large of a flare on shorter women can have a shortening effect. But, like the boot cut, the larger base allows you to cover a towering high-heel, so even short women can wear bell bottoms with the help of some platforms or clogs.
Plus sized women should be aware when wearing wide bell bottoms that too wide of a base can make you appear large all over and can appear sloppy, where the boot cut and straight leg options are more tighter, sophisticated and flattering jean style for larger women.
Enjoy this style and its return. Contrary to the super tight and low skinnies, flared jeans are breaking all the rules and going medium and even high rise.
This should make jean shopping a lot more pleasurable for women! Not only are women free from the challenging skinny, but the low rise and its kneeling and bending over limits are seeing the end of their days, too.
Bell bottom jeans beg to be paired with an effortlessly chic and feminine top. Think a soft, sheer top and of course, your beautiful smile and you will look perfect.
