Printed shirts have always been my favorite. You can do so much with printed shirts. Boohoo prints, patterns, embroidery, florals and what not. They are easy to carry and should be considered for day time looks, especially.

Here are some ways you can still look presentable. Pro tip is wear sunglasses to avoid looking dead. Second is to make a messy bun with that old hair or just leave them open if they are freshly washed. Play less with the colors. Wear a neutral top with denim bell bottoms. Pick up a never-full bag, wear some perfume. And you are ready to step up!
#09. White Pants & Plain Shirt
Something that is for the conscious sophisticated ladies. White jeans, can go very wrong or can give you the perfect elegant look. If you think you can be very ladylike or conscious around the pants then wear them with a plain simple shirt. You can play with the material of the shirt. I’d say only wear this for occasions that are short lived.
#08. African Styled Printed Bell Bottoms
We have seen women incorporating the African dressing style in western clothing too, especially in braided hair and pants. These prints when coupled with the flared pants look really bubbly and cute. Pair these up with a plain blouse or white cropped tee. Add up some bangles and African style bracelets to give you that ethnic look!
#07. Street Style
The utter level of being fashionable and defining the fashion world too, the street style. The Britain originated fashion, which intersects from mainstream fashion, focusing on individualism and a new approach to fashion. This is the new comprehensive approach to fashion that has been setting trends for quite a while now. So get your bell bottoms out, dress in anyway unconventional way you want. Pair these put with chunky boots, sneakers or anything that gives you a strong chic feeling. You can pull an oversized coat on your shoulders, wear a cropped sweater or hefty jacket. Just remember this is all about YOUR style and how YOU carry it.
#06. Leather Bell Bottom Pants
The old-style pop fashion, the leather pants, not fail to amaze us. A preferably night outfit like the leather bottoms can be matched with a top or blouse that good perfectly with it. Heels, that are a must, should be worn for the pants to turn our crisp looking. Go for a hair blow out, some nice earrings and boom, you are all set for this perfect look!
#05. Checkered Shirt
This one’s a casual look or a look perhaps for girls that aren’t very girly type, precisely prefer dressing as a tomboy or I’d say going easy-going folks. This look includes checkered shirts that we find in every brand stores. This is the classic style that perfectly goes with denim bell bottoms. A checkered shirt is a must have in your closet and pairing it with pants would make it a casual perfect look for college or study date.
#04. Coat with Pants
You can add a little formal touch to your denim bell bottoms by pairing it with a nice summer blazer or perhaps create a formal look in its own by getting a matching pant suit. I love a contrasting long coat with one of my bell bottom pants. My personal take would be making a sleek hair bun with my long oversized coat and wearing pointy heels or high sole sneakers with it. If you think about it you do have an ample variety of coats to choose from. Summery, formal, blazers, long coats etc. You can create an office look, a winter look or whatever suits your style but always go for the unorthodox, that will always stand out!
#03. Party Wear
Bling Bling! Get that 60’s party look by taking out those party pants and adding a little sparkle to them. Sequins really go for party looks and as we know these have been a popular trend lately for blouses and dresses. Get yourself a sequins embellished blouse and put those bell bottoms on. Or another party look could be a lacey net blouse with black bell bottoms but I’d say I like the bling better.
#02. Loose Top
Another kind of tops that look really cute and boohoo too, are the kaftan tops. These loose tops complement the flared pants too. Loose tops look the best in materials like chiffon so I’d say get a silk or droopy top to perfectly with the jeans. Do beach waves for your hair, you also can add in a floral crown headband for pictures!
#01. Vintage Styling
Striped or plain pants with the classic point white points giving you a little lift with that small block heel. Probably if you are going to a thematic party that says vintage, opt for the outfit. Simple untied hair with black sunglasses or aviators with half sleeved tees giving you that fitted look, is the picture perfect look for a vintage styled woman.
