There is one trend in particular this spring that I can’t live without: bell bottom jeans. I have made it known to most of my close friends how important it is they notify me at first sight of any high waisted bell bottom jeans available for purchase. They are simply a spring wardrobe must-have. Thankfully I spotted this Fashionista because she had just the answer I was looking for. Her high waisted flared pants were accompanied with a flirty blouse and vintage chunky belt along with hoop earrings and a middle part that added an extra flare to her '70s friendly look.
My initial envy only momentarily preceded my excitement of the possibility that this Fashionista might indulge me with directions to the retail home of her covetable bell bottom jeans. After all, it is hard to find the perfect pair, especially a pair long enough to cover sky-high wedges and still just conveniently graze the floor. High-waisted bell bottom jeans are an essential for many reasons. The most important being their ability to flatter any figure. Pants tight around the thigh and heavily flared at the bottom are slimming for any body type. Throw in a pair of high wedges or heels and these pants give anyone that extra element of length.
Hint: This Fashionista bought her featured Rich & Skinny jeans from Nordstrom. You can also head to their site and find a similar top and some chunky wedges that go perfectly with the look. Throw in a vintage waist belt and some gaudy jewelry to really get some extra “flare”!
