Everything is cyclical in fashion. Things that were in style when I was much younger (overalls are a prime example) are coming back with a vengeance. Up until now, I’ve been pretty “meh” about some of these trends, but I can feel society as a whole breathe a sigh of relief when I tell you that…
wait for it…
bootcut and flare jeans are coming back!
YES! For all of you that hate skinnies and have bemoaned their existence, you can rejoice as bootcut and flare jeans are back! You can get as crazy as you want with the size of the flare, but I am more of a bootcut girl myself. I LOVE a good bootcut jean on women. Let me just tell you, a dark bootcut denim will make ANY woman look taller and skinnier. It’s one of my favorite styling secrets and I was annoyed when skinnies were the end-all-be-all of denim because they DON’T SUIT ALL BODY TYPES. Nor does everyone want to wear skin tight/constricting jeans. I hated that selections were minimal when I was styling clients and that was just irksome.
Now that they’re officially back, here are my top 3 picks for bootcut jeans:
Low: Express Faded Dark Low Rise Bootcut $40
Mid: Gap Long and Lean (my favorite for all clients!) $69.95
High: 7 For All Mankind Original Bootcut $178 (Or any of their bootcut jeans)
So pull out your boot cut jeans and wear them with pride! They’re baaaaaack! 😉
