Bell-bottom jeans, sometimes known as flares due to their wide-leg shape, were influenced by 19th-century United States Navy uniforms and soared to popularity in the 1960s and 1970s.

Bell-bottom jeans had several comebacks since their peak in the 1970s, most notably in the 1990s, when they were rebranded as "boot-cut" jeans. Bell-bottom jeans are prominently making a comeback now that the world's pants-wearers are confronting even more occasions to change out of our PJs.

Of course, buying jeans or any clothing online may be rugged. Due homework, which includes reviewing buyers' comments, triple-checking the size chart, familiarizing yourself with the return policy, and trying on pants before purchasing (where possible), is critical to ensure your online trouser purchase does not disappoint.

It's an excellent idea to start looking for bell-bottoms with a sense of how many flares you prefer. Would you like a subtle, modern kick-flare, a dramatic, all-out classic bell shape, or something in the middle?

The good thing is that you have a lot of options. Our editors have compiled a list of the hippest, most trendy, and economic bell-bottom jeans on the market to help you navigate the myriad classic denim styles crowding the present market.

Best Bell Bottom Jeans of All Time

1. Mango Flared Jeans Flare

Mango Flared Jeans Flare

Mango's flared jeans have a lot to love: not only will the higher waistlines on these look ultra-flattering, but these comfy jeans enhance your waistband, but they also provide a "tucked-in" feeling for your tummy. There's also the added benefit of the soft, elastic fabric being created with sustainable fibres designed to have a low environmental impact.

2. Rolla's Eastcoast Flare Karen Blue

At first, these mid-blue bell-bottoms 70s may seem snug around the booty, but they usually soften with wear. The washed blue denim is lightweight and stretchier than typical denim because it is made of cotton with a hint of elastane. These jeans are made by Rolla's with their trademark gold-toned trims and back-pocket stitching.

3. ASOS Ribbed Flare Leggings

ASOS Ribbed Flare Leggings

They may have been renamed "flared leggings" by Gen Z, but to us millennials, they'll always remain yoga pants. These ASOS New Look bell bottom leggings/yoga pants are beautiful enough to go out and comfortable enough to move in.

4. Urban Outfitters Tie-Back Flare Pant

Another bygone design item making a reappearance is exposed thongs or "floss" detailing, which was inspired by loud, showy Y2K outfits. With a strappy tie-back waist fastening and a smooth, flexible blend of cotton and Lycra, these curve-hugging flares reflect the daring Y2K trend. According to reviews, they run large, so size down.

5. H&M Flared Leggings

These H&M flared leggings are ideal for on-the-go days, thanks to their ribbed cotton-blend jersey style and elasticized waistline. They're comprised of a stretchy blend of cotton, polyester, and spandex.

6. Target Bell Bottom Jeans

 Target Bell Bottom Jeans

We love these black-wash, full-length flares from Target, which are popular with the store's proud customers who pronounce it tar-jay. The jeans include a high waist, a comfortable fly-hook waistband with a zipper closing, and two functional rear pockets.

7. American Eagle Bell Bottoms 70s

The frayed hem on these black-wash charcoal jeans makes them stand out. They're composed of a soft, breathable blend of cotton, rayon, polyester, and elastane that won't stretch out of shape. These AE flares were manufactured from recycled textiles using environmentally friendly procedures to sweeten the deal.

8. Nashville Stripe Bell Bottoms

These super-flared bell-bottom jeans with vivid stripes and frayed ends are sure to turn heads. They created the mid-rise flares out of cotton and spandex, which also look great with a pair of cowboy boots.

9. Rock & Roll Striped Bell Bottom Jeans

Rock & Roll Striped Bell Bottom Jeans

These mile-long striped bell-bottoms with dramatic flares from Texas-based designer Rock & Roll Denim are playful and flirty. The material is a super-stretchy blend of cotton, polyester, and spandex.

10. Torrid Mid Rise Bell Bottoms

These mid-waist flares are particularly elastic and silky, making them "ideal for every body shape." They have a slim fit until around the knee when the cut flares out into a slight flare.
