I can't tell you how excited I am for this look to come back. When I was in high school, I found a trunk of my mom's clothes that she wore in the 70's. I was in style heaven. It was during the time that everyone was wearing GAP or Abercrombie and Fitch like it was a uniform. I was the weird girl wearing her mom's leather coat or multi-colored jumpsuit. I didn't care I loved it.
That's why I am so excited to see some seventies looks reemerging in 2015. Today, we're delving into the bell bottom look.
What I love about this style is that it's denim. It automatically brings an ease to styling that would be hard to do with patchwork or crochet bells. You know those existed.
You don't have to go out and buy 70's inspired tops to make Bell Bottoms work. You can pair it with your favorite everyday top, and your look will be complete. Don't believe me? Look how these beautiful ladies make bell bottoms seem so 2015 in a completely effortless way.

But, I love how it elongates a persons legs. I'm pretty much a skinny jeanaholic, but I am also a platform shoe lover. These two loves together sometimes don't make a right. That's the other reason I want bell bottoms. The flare can perfectly fit over my platforms making my legs look longer than they actually are. Take a look at the image above for my case and point.
