Whether you're wearing bell bottoms in a totally on-trend boho print or flared denim style, we all know they can be a daunting look to pull off (especially for shorter girls). Here we've compiled some of our best styling tips to help you not only pull off the look, but to feel like the mega babe you are in your bell bottoms.

First, you'll need to pick out the perfect pair of bell bottoms. Black lace or a beautiful boho print are perfect choices for the festival experience: Show off those stems in casual comfort and style. We love how Kendall Jenner styled hers with a billowy cropped peasant top at this year's Coachella.

Bear in mind that the print on Jenner's pants is actually wearable for either work or play, depending on how you style it.

If you'd like to opt for a flared denim style instead, try it out with a white button-down, lace, and dark jeans for some effortless chic at work. Or, tuck a bright top into a lighter shade of denim for a casual outing with friends. Bonus points if you sport two trends by rocking denim-on-denim for some savvy street style, the way Jessica Alba did here.

Say you're feeling all work and no play lately. Sprinkle spice back into your wardrobe by wearing your '70s-inspired wide-leg bottoms with a bralette. The strappier the better, as we say. Throw on a loose T-shirt over for more covered-up comfort, or, go for a crop top instead. Crochet knit optional.

Need an extra layer, but don't want to be too weighed down? Try throwing on a sleeveless duster or kimono. Style with a wide-brimmed hat for maximum practicality and cuteness.

Polish off the look with a pair of sky-high platforms, especially if you're petite. This tricks the eye into following the continued elongation of the leg, especially since your pants are most likely long enough to cover the shoe. Wedges are an option if you're a fan of casual comfort.

Put the finishing touches on your outfit with some bohemian jewelry essentials. Choose to layer long delicate necklaces, go for a statement necklace, or opt for a wide gypsy coin belt that hugs your hips instead.

Now you're the ultimate babe in bell bottoms – so where are you headed?
