About Bell Bottoms

Bell bottoms became very fashionable in the 1960s because of avant-garde hippies and stars like The Beatles and Cher. Bell bottom pants have actually been around since the early 1800s, and they got their name because of their bell shape, which gets wider towards the feet. Even U.S. Navy sailors still wear them to make their clothes easier to remove if they are thrown overboard. Bell bottom pants are still in style, and they look good on men and women with a wide variety of body types, especially with heels, boots, or platform shoes. They look great with t-shirts or dressier styles. Vintage bell bottoms can have bright colors, patches, stripes, patterns, unique embroidery, or other interesting touches. They tend to have higher waists and smaller pockets than new ones. Corduroy or velvet bell bottoms are perfect for winter, but many others are made of denim, cotton, satin, or khaki. You can use the reliable sellers on eBay to find a great deal on the best new or used bell bottoms for you or your family.
