these aren't these best photos to show, but in others you can see the bellbottom shape more.

Holy hot damn those Moschino's are hideous! (thanks for the pics!) Yet strangely I can't look away ...

Lol ... this thread is cute. I can see it going the same way as the skinny jean thread;

Ew! Skinny jeans? What is this, the 80's?

Only thin people can wear them, they're so limiting!

Hmmmm ... those ones on Kate Moss look kind of cute actually ...

Maybe I'll try on a pair ... damn I look good!

Skinny jeans forever!!!

Personally I like wider legs, purely for selfish reasons, since I have a long torso and short legs, so skinny, lower-rise pants make my legs look approx. 1.5 feet long.

I completely forgot to mention boots for these bellbottom pants. Still, I think your most chic pair of boots would work just fine with these. Doesn't matter if you have a pair of boots like these romantic (at least to me) "Trishia" cuffed ankle boots from Steve Madden: < http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/2909068?...6-39df3a4af200 >, or any sort of leather boots you may have, boots work just as well as shoes and sandals. Just avoid the UGG boots (including their knock-offs) with these bellbottoms. I mentioned the Trishia boots as romantic because I seen a similar boot in an ad for (a dating website). One model was wearing these boots, and they look more like pumps than boots. These boots look closest to the boots this specific model was wearing.

Any other shoe/sandal suggestions for bellbottoms?

i love how most of the pants posted here aren't even bellbottoms

honestly, the only labels who have done bellbottoms are balmain, d&g and moschino (which were just a sad knockoff of balmain's). cheap & chic also did them a season or so ago, they were really nice in what looked to me like a bordeaux peachskin.

This season reminds me of 6th grade all over again. Like 1999, early 2000. Or like the 70's style kinda, bell bottoms and flowers.

then i must be confused on the term since you're the second person who said that.
what exactly is the difference between bellbottoms and flares?

American Vogue right now has ads with all BELLBOTTOMS! But they don't look half bad.

Flares are a little bit more tretched out then boot cut jeans. Bellbottoms look like a bell shape.

(think flare out and a bell, bellbottoms are more extreme and 70's and flares are early 2000)

, you're welcome. Well I think some designers did flares and some did bell bottoms. Most of the ads I seen were bell bottoms though.

Lol. It's like I already wore them at 11 and now they are back again. I looked back a few years ago and was like "what were we thinking?!" and now I get to ask the same question again. I wonder what the babyboomers are saying about this (3 times a charm.)

I'm game for anything that bumps skinny jeans out of the trend zone.

a bellbottom is basically just a tight pant with a ruffle or a mini circle skirt sewn around the hem of the legs. it's pretty simple. most of the pants posted here (burberry comes to my mind) are just straight legs.
