Hot take: Bell-bottom jeans are one of the most versatile pant styles currently trending. Whether rip-kneed for the rocker in you, high-waisted and retro, or tailored and subtly flared, the best bell-bottom jeans might seem extra at first, but really they’re just here to help you bring out your own denim personality.
What To Look For When Shopping For Bell-Bottom Jeans Silhouette
When it comes to bell-bottom jeans, the leg opening is the star of the show. A super-wide flare will give you that retro feel, but if you feel a little bell-shy, you can still take advantage of the trend — simply choose a more subtle
flare jean. Likewise, think about the rise of your bell-bottom jeans. A high waist is another stylish detail that pairs well with crop tops for a modern-meets-retro going-out look, while a mid-rise bell-bottom is a can’t-go-wrong classic. Wash
While denim wash is a personal preference, it also does a lot to convey a certain aesthetic. For instance, light-wash bell bottoms can harken back to the early aughts (retro is more than just the ’70s, after all), while a bell bottom in a luxe, coated finish, or in black denim, brings a little more edge for nights out, especially when paired with the right top and accessories. And
dark-wash denim always looks crisp and sophisticated, even when paired with this playful silhouette. Styling
Once you’ve selected a pair (or two), think about styling. A tucked-in T-shirt tones down the dramatic silhouette, while a crop top in a loud print plays up the retro vibes. If the aforementioned cocktails are calling, pull out a pair of wedges (the bell-bottom’s natural shoe partner) and a luxe camisole or
corset top; and for a workplace look that’s the perfect balance of casual and chic, tuck in a slouchy silk button-down shirt and add a pair of leather slides.
No matter your style preference, there’s a pair of groovy-chic jeans out there for you. Keep on scrolling to shop some of the best bell-bottom jeans Amazon Fashion has to offer.

bell bottoms features a wide, statement-making flare, and edgy details like an exposed button fly, high rise, black wash, and ripped knees for some statement-making oomph.

Even if you’ve already got a pair of
Levi’s jeans, you’ll want to add this pair to your collection; they have the sort of timeless details one expects from the classic denim brand. These have a high rise and a close fit through the hips and thighs, but the flared legs are a refreshing departure from your standard straight-leg or skinny jeans. In spite of the slim silhouette, the cotton, polyester, and elastane fabric has enough stretch to prevent this pair from ever feeling restrictive; if your favorite pair of skinny jeans and some ’70s flares had a love child, this pair would be it. The black shade pictured is particularly polished, but you have three blue washes to choose from, too: dark, medium, and light with subtle distressing. Enthusiastic review: “These fit really well. They're very soft, aren't constricting, are really comfortable, and I feel good in them. That rarely happens might I add.

How cute are the patch-front pockets of these
bell bottoms? It’s the sort of sweet, retro detail that would pair so well with a whimsical printed crop top. These feature a medium rise and a classic medium wash, plus a flare that’s wide enough to make a statement while still being workplace-appropriate. Thousands of reviewers love that not only do these jeans have style, but with a little spandex blended into the cotton and polyester fabric, they’re also comfy. Enthusiastic review: “These bell bottoms were everything I hope for when I order something as temperamental as jeans. They do have a good amount of ‘stretch and give’ that they formed to my thighs, butt etc., but still had the flair at the bottom. I literally took them out of the package, slipped them on, and immediately took them into my closet as ‘keepers’.” Available sizes: Small — 4X-Large Available colors: 14 5 These Pull-On Bell Bottoms With A Comfy Elastic Waistband
There’s no reason to sacrifice comfort for style (or vice versa) with these
mid-rise bell bottoms. They feature a sleek, pocket-free flat front and a rich indigo wash, but with an elastic pull-on waistband, you get dreamy comfort, too. Made of a blend of cotton, polyester, viscose, and elastane, this pair features two back pockets, with a subtle V at the waistline that nods to the early aughts (show it off by tucking in a luxe button-down and a pair of stiletto pumps, while you’re at it). The flare of this pair is more subtle, so if you’re feeling a little flare-shy, this could be the pair for you. Enthusiastic review: “I was pleasantly surprised at how well they fit. The jeans looked as nice as jeans with a zip fly and button waist but didn't dig in. I have pretty bad stomach issues and can't stand any pressure around my midsection but these were comfortable even after sitting in a car for 2 hours.” Available sizes: 14 — 30 Available colors: 2 6 A Pair Of High-Waisted Flares With An On-Trend Baggy Fit
Not only is the looser fit of these light-wash
high-waisted flares so on-trend, they’ll also feel super comfy.

Either way, Bella Hadid would surely approve. Enthusiastic review: “Great quality and fit (true to size). Perfect to wear to work for a finished look.

Bought in other shades too!” Available sizes: Small — XX-Large Available colors: 6 7 A Sleek Pair Of Black Bell-Bottoms You’ll Wear All Year Long

bell bottoms isn’t overly exaggerated, so if you just want to dip your toe into the bell-bottom trend, they should do the trick. Featuring a mid-rise and blended with 2% spandex, reviewers love how comfortable these jeans are. The black shade puts a chic spin on the style, but this pair also comes in white and two distressed blue shades. Enthusiastic review: “I love the style and the fit, they were comfortable too! A great look for me!” Available sizes: 12 Plus — 22 Plus Available colors: 4 8 A Pair Of Coated-Denim Bell Bottoms That Are Worth The Splurge
The coated, leather-like finish of these
bell bottoms by PAIGE more than justifies the price tag; it’s the kind of special detail that sets this pair apart from the rest of the denim pack and ensures you’ll want to wear them all the time, day or night. Made of rayon, cotton, polyester, and spandex, this pair features a high rise and a flare that’s perfectly, well, flared.

With a wide flared leg, this pair of
jeans by classic brand Dickies is a fresh take on the utilitarian trend, featuring a unique plaid flannel lining that’s both cozy and stylish. A relaxed fit and high rise combine with 100% cotton denim for a pair of jeans with serious staying power. Wear these with a cozy sweater and loafers when the weather turns chilly, or with your Wellies to do some yard work — that durable cotton denim can take a beating, and the flannel will keep you super warm when you’re out in the elements. Keep in mind that since these won’t have the give of a pair with elastane or spandex blended in, so size up if you prefer extra room. Enthusiastic review: “These jeans are lined with flannel and they are exactly what I was looking for to keep warm. I live near the windy city of Chicago,where it is cold @ 8 months out of the year, so when going outside walking the dogs in winter months, these jeans keep you warm. [...] The quality was very good and they are a great deal on Amazon, I think. I purchased another brand that was quite a bit more expensive than these jeans, and I think these are even a little bit nicer quality than they were. So for the money they are a great buy! I would def definitely recommend these!” Available sizes: 4 — 24 Available colors: 1
