Published in Daily Trivia

Bell-bottoms became very fashionable in the 1960s, both for men and women. In the mid 1990s they became popular again in women's and men's fashion in Europe spreading to the Americas. They were initially reintroduced as "boot cut" with a slight flare leg. Over time the width of the hem grew wider and the term "flare leg" was favored in marketing over the term "bell bottom".
