Bootcut jeans are a bit of a throwback, as skinny jeans and high-waisted “mom” jeans reign. Don’t discount bootcut jeans though. Bootcut jeans are form-fitting through the butt, hips and thighs, accenting your curves, and then they flare out slightly around your knee through the bottom of the jeans. Unlike the flower power bell bottoms, these jeans don’t make a dramatic statement with their flair. The flair creates a clean, straight-line. If you’re looking to add some length to your silhouette, these jeans will get the job done. They give you more flexibility in moving around while still giving you that fitted look.
Bootcut jeans were designed—you guessed it— to wear over your cowboy boots. They were very practical jeans when they were first invented. Try pulling the bottoms of your jeans over a boot. You probably won’t be able to do it. Cowboy boots might not be as in vogue anymore, but bootcut jeans are a classic that will remain in style. These jeans typically have the “All-American” book and evoke the West and South, but you can style these to either play up or play down the Western vibes.
