Hey my loves ,
I’ve been wanting bell bottoms for quite a long time now but never came across one which I actually like until now. I have to admit , I have a slight obsession over clothing which were worn back in the 90s – those colourful and groovy outfits -> L O V E.
Did you know that …
“The belled or flared legs on bell-bottom pants were originally a functional design, worn by those who worked on boats since the seventeenth century. The large legs allowed the pants to be easily rolled up out of the way for such messy jobs as washing the decks. In addition, if a sailor fell overboard, bell-bottom pants could be pulled off over boots or shoes and the wide legs inflated with air for use as a life preserver.”
Now , back to today. I paired my bell bottoms with a white swimsuit which I wore as a top , a spotted scarf which I wore both as a neck scarf and as a headscarf ( living for headscarves at the moment) and brown block heel sandals.
Hope this inspires you to add a little flare to your wardrobe 🙂
