Bell bottoms making comeback

 Hey! HAPPY 2018 to you and yours! I can’t believe we’re already in a new year. Crazy how much happened last year and this weekend was spent reflecting on all that was, and all that is to come! I am sooo ready for a fresh start and to kick this year’s BOOTAY.

That’s right, bell bottom enthusiasts. High-and mid rise bell bottom jeans are making their comeback! They are being spotted on high-end runways and even on cutting-edge celebrity icon Lady Gaga. These cool and comfortable jeans give the person wearing them the feeling that they are re-creating the 70’s, when these jeans really took off.

High- waisted jeans can be found at Dillard’s or Amazon for under $100! If your price range is higher, a good place to find these jeans would be on NORDSTROM. They have some pretty cute ones. 

 


 

My Mom was the one to teach me do’s and don’ts when wearing high-rise bells. Apparently, a sign of nerds during that era was to have creases in the jeans from the shirt you tucked in to show off your jeans. In order to prevent these weird creases, try tucking your shirt slightly into your underwear. I know this may sound odd, but it was actually pretty common back then and it does work to eliminate the shirt outlines from your jeans. Some people believe you should wear these jeans with a  flat. However, I believe that this look goes well with a wedge, high heel, or even a short boot. 

 Some teens are a little cautious in trying to pull off this look off, and with good reason. It;s difficult for many people, Jessica Simpson included, to not look slightly awkward in them. Even though our generation is not very fond of reaching out to our parents, in this case it would not be a bad idea to seek out your Mom’s advice in how to wear these jeans. I’m normally between XS and a Small, so I got the small, but it’s kinda loose a little bit. So I’d definitely recommend sizing up. It’s still very comfortable though! The material is stretchy, but not in a tacky way. It’s form fitting in the most flattering way. I’m really glad I bough these to add to my ever growing bell bottom collection. 

 What are some of your goals for the New Year?
