Bell Bottom Pants History
Long pants, which widened from the knee, appeared in the navy at the beginning of the last century – they were part of the uniform of English sailors. Such pants were much more comfortable and effective than the classic models. When the sailor was in the water, these pants had side buckles so that he could quickly get out of them. Over time, sailors realized how advantageous flared pants looked and the huge impact this had on the general public. So they sewed wedges or pieces of lead into the bottom so that the pants would rise when walking as if they were on deck in a strong wind. “Cloche” was the name given to the pants.
Pants cloche moved into the everyday closet much later than the famous sailor suit. In the late 60’s all over the world began to develop a subculture of hippies – a movement of free people protesting against puritanical morality. Pencils, psychedelic colours, beads, unusual hairstyles and bell-bottoms became the visual symbols of the rebels. These models with pockets on the outside of the thigh were worn by men and women alike.
From the closet of hippies, the clash gradually made its way to the fashion catwalks and eventually to the closets of the inhabitants of almost the entire civilized world. After the hippie wave began to subside, the world underwent political and moral changes, and the clash was forgotten for a few years. During the early ’90s, wide-knee pants were associated with the “disco” look. However, these models moved exclusively to the women’s closet.

Pants are suitable if your dress code at work allows a certain freedom. Black bell bottom pants with a high waist, made of thick fabric, such as fleece or gabardine, will look stylish with a white blouse and black high-heeled shoes. A short haircut or a simple ponytail, a fitted jacket, discreet accessories and a minimum of strict jewelry – and your business image is ready. White and beige bellows will create a more feminine look, especially if your pants are made of a light, airy fabric.
For work, you are more suitable pants, flared from the hip. They look quite restrained, and they can even be made of denim. Complement the image with a light fitted T-shirt, a fur vest or a black jacket.
What kind of pinches is suitable for running errands, walking to the store and for a walk? First of all, jeans. It does not matter what shirt or sweater you wear on top as long as they are not bulky. Otherwise, your silhouette will become disharmonious and bulky. You can wear a pinned tunic at the waist with a thin belt, so it would not look baggy. Avoid platform shoes and wedge heels because they will weigh your leg in combination with the crêpe. Forget about sneakers, sneakers and loafers. Flared shoes are more elegant.
Slim girls with beautiful figures can afford pants in plaid and stripes. Geometric prints on flared pants can be very difficult to choose, so those with full or too-thin legs should be cautious.
Flared pants will help to create the right romantic image or the image of a socialite. You will not remain unnoticed in flowing models made of silk, satin, corduroy or velvet, adorned with sequins, rhinestones, oriental prints and bright large prints. Add accessories and jewelry in the same style, and choose a more discreet top.
Do you want to create a more delicate or austere look for the evening? Opt for black silk or satin puffers and blue or beige cotton models. If it’s warm, wear a strappy top, which will give you a sexy look. You are ready to go out on a summer walk with a cute small handbag, a light chiffon scarf around the neck, and bright little jewelry.
