Bells + Whistles

It is pretty cool that denim diversity has become the new norm in the fashion world.  Yes, there are still dominant trends and certain no-no’s that will always mark the highs and lows of good jeans, but for the most part, anything goes!  Maybe it’s a greater acceptance for the fact that women’s bodies are no longer assumed to be one-size-fits-all, but whatever the reason, it’s a beautiful thing.

This seems to be a relatively new movement in equality in the style sphere; for a long time just a few years ago skinny jeans were the only acceptable silhouette.  Flares were a definite faux-paux; the wide leg look was the ugly fat kid of the bunch.  But like all outcasts, the bell is back to show all the other chumps who’s boss.  Heavily tied to a resurgence in ’60s style that has dominated the fashion world, bell bottoms are all over the runways, everywhere in retailers high and low, and a frequent scene on the street.

Clocking it at only a few inches under six feet, I am thrilled by the shift in the style seas.  This particular cut lengthens the leg and works wonders for people of height.
