What are Bell-Bottoms?

Bell-bottoms, also known as flares, are a style of trousers or jeans that are fitted through the hips and thighs and flare out below the knee, forming a bell-like shape. They became popular in the 1960s and 1970s as a fashion trend and were associated with counterculture movements. Bell-bottoms can be made from various fabrics and are known for their distinctive wide-leg silhouette. While the popularity of bell-bottoms has fluctuated over time, they have remained a fashion staple and are often worn for their retro or bohemian aesthetic.
