Blogger Wendy Nguyen of Wendy’s Lookbook explains how to re-create 1970’s style with one of the decade’s most iconic trends: flared jeans in the video below (no longer available). Bring on the bell-bottoms to elongate our legs and make us look super tall.

Bell Bottom Jeans Tutorial

Want to create your own 70’s inspired bell bottom jeans? Simply take an old pair of jeans, cut up the outside seam, almost up to the knee. Sew in a triangle piece of fabric, and you’re set!

70's Hippie with Bell Bottom Jeans

My mother actually did this for me to wear to a 70’s party. Since then, two of my daughters and even some of their friends have borrowed that same pair of jeans for 70’s occasions.
