I’m having déjà vu, because it seems like we ask this question every few years:  Are BELL-BOTTOMS officially back in style?

They’re in the news because Target started selling a women’s version recently.  Except instead of bell-bottoms, they’re calling them “Extreme Flare Jeans.”

Google Trends says the phrase “Are bell-bottoms back in style?” is trending right now.  It’s the #1 “back in style” search this week . . . followed by “Are fanny packs back in style?”  The rest of the top five are banana clips, Uggs, and Members Only jackets.
