Currently, bootcut jeans are back in fashion after a long time in oblivion. It is not a new trend, or even just a few years ago, this proposal with the cowboys has been with us for many years, but ... do you know what their origins are?
Possibly you do not know that its origin does not go back to the decade of the sixties or seventies as many people think but to know its roots you have to leave until the year 1813, where the first reference was in the uniforms of the sailors of the Navy from United States.
Why did they have a bootcut? The answer is simple, because they were very easy pants to remove even with the boots on, they could be rolled up so as not to get wet when walking in areas with puddles or mud and could even be used as a flotation instrument since it could be filled part of the pants with air.
With the passage of time, other trends were emerging in terms of pants and the bell would not be present in fashion until the 60s and 70s, coinciding with the hippie movement.
Given their easy-going characteristics and how comfortable they were, the youth of that time soon made them their own and turned them into one of the great icons that many fashion firms soon sold massively.
Bootcut jeans were not only the heritage of the hippies but also part of the so-called disco fever and the discos of those years were filled with impossible styles among which were also bell-bottoms.
They were worn by both men and women, they wore suit jackets or jackets and even leather jackets. They combined them with tight blouses and leather blazers, almost like man.
As it happens with many of the fashion garments, with the passage of time they gradually disappeared until the arrival of the nineties, where they returned to acquire a great prominence, although this time among the female audience.
Since then they have been going back and forth intermittently and nowadays they are still a trend because, as you will have seen in the collections of many fashion companies, the 70s, 80s and 90s are once again a must.
