All hail the bell bottom.
If there’s one thing you can count on in fashion, it’s that trends always come back around.
The 70s have dominated our wardrobes for the past few seasons – think turtlenecks, boho dresses, and puffed sleeves – and so it was only a matter of time before our denims caught up too.
Yes, flared jeans are set for a serious comeback in 2020.
Plenty of us will remember donning bell-bottoms to teenage discos back in the early 2000s, only to arrive home with the ends soaking after standing in the rain waiting for a lift.
Happily, this year’s flares are more streamlined…
Make like Bella Hadid or Selena Gomez, rather than ABBA, and keep the rest of your outfit simple. Pair your flares with a knitted jumper and some white runners for day-to-day wear or add heeled boots for a leg-lengthening look.
Not ready to fully commit to the trend? Try bootcut instead for a new jean shape with a little less drama.
What do you reckon – ready to part with your go-to skinnies or mom jeans for something a little retro?
