Bell-bottoms first came into fashion in the early 1970s.

At the time, jeans, symbolizing "freedom" and "rebellion," were beloved, and baggy pants and wide pants were in vogue in addition to bell bottoms (boot cut).

Bell-bottoms originally originated in the uniforms of the U.S. Navy, and from the 1960s onward, they became one of the representative fashion items of the hippie culture, such as flower-patterned shirts.

Then, in Paris, Pierre Cardin and Yves Saint-Laurent introduced bell-bottom silhouette pants as "pantaloons," and they brought about a new fashion trend in women's fashion.

Pantaloons" is a French word meaning "pants," and when bell-bottoms became popular in Japan from the 1960s to the 1970s, "pantaloons" came to refer to bell-bottoms.

(The term "pantaloons" is now obsolete and is called "bell-bottoms.)

From the 1970s onward, fashion began to become more and more varied.

The trend was to "wear what you want to wear" rather than "feel comfortable wearing the same clothes as everyone else around you.

At this time, eccentric fashions such as bell-bottoms and hot pants became popular among young people.

Bell bottoms are often thought of as something that women wear, but they were popular with men as well.

However, in the 1980s, the trend switched from eccentric fashion to a more relaxed style of slim jeans.

In 1992, the vintage clothing boom brought bell-bottoms into the spotlight, but they subsided after a few years.

Today, silhouettes with slightly wider hems, such as boot-cut and flared pants, are mostly used as standard items.
