Lainey Wilson On Why Her Signature Look Is Bell Bottoms

When you think about Lainey Wilson, the first thing that usually comes to mind is her bell bottoms. It’s her signature look.

She’s asked about it a LOT and she’s talked about how she wanted to have something to set herself apart.

But there’s another cool angle to it. She wanted to have an iconic “Air Jordan” look. Sort of.

In the early days of her career, she and her manager were taking a tour of the Country Music Television offices, and while they were admiring the photos of country icons up on the wall, the executive showing them around said, “All the legends . . . you can recognize by their silhouette.”

This comment stuck with Lainey, so she went all-in on the bell bottom aesthetic, matching it with a wide-brim hat to really stick out.

if you were to look at a silhouette of all the major country stars, you’d instantly know which one was Lainey.

She’s also the only female nominated for Entertainer of the Year at the ACM Awards.

The show takes place on Thursday, May 16th.
