What to Wear with Bootcut Jeans

The skinny jeans has been on trend for quite a long time now, which must be the reason why fashionistas are bringing the bootcut jeans back fast. Bootcut jeans used to be really popular in the 90s, even until the early 2000’s before the skinny jeans made its comeback. Today, seeing bootcut jeans back  in the streets and in stores is very refreshing and exciting.

Although highly recommended for curvy women, bootcut jeans are versatile and looks good on slender ladies as well as proven by the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton herself who is often seen wearing bootcut jeans in all color and washes. Here are some suggestions on what to wear with bootcut jeans, in case you wanna try them out:

  • A button down shirt – sheer button down shirts are so popular these days you can get them almost anywhere. If you’re going for a casual look, you can try pairing your button down shirt with a pair of bootcut jeans along with minimal accessories. This look is perfect for dressing down at work, too. Just tuck your button down shirt in and accessorize with a really gorgeous belt and you should be all set for working the day stylishly.

  • Plaid shirt – go country and pair your bootcut jeans  with a plaid shirt and a nice pair of cowboy boots. If you live in the big city and don’t want to seem like a lost cowgirl, you can ditch the cowboy boots and go for sexy boots with pointed toes instead. Or you can ditch the boots altogether and go preppy instead.

  • Plain shirt – there is nothing more casual than a plain shirt and jeans outfit, no matter what style of jeans. To make your outfit more interesting, wear chunky accessories along with it. A slightly tight fitting shirt will do you good if you want to show off your curves while wearing bootcut jeans, too.

  • Cardigan or jacket – for those rather cold days, wearing your bootcut jeans with a cardigan or a jacket seems like a good idea. It’s a look that’s very easy to pull off by almost anyone. Because the bootcu jeans have an elongating effect on the legs, especially when worn with heels, a really long cardigan would look very chic and sophisticated with it.

Bootcut pants are making their own comeback so go and ransack your closet to see if you still have an old pair that you can spiffy up.
