In addition to fashion royalty, the bootcut has a fan in actual royal Kate Middleton. The Princess is often seen in bootcut jeans in all shades of the denim spectrum, proving that bootcuts look as good on slender ladies as they do on curvy girls.
So dig out those bootcuts from the back of the wardrobe, or better yet, treat yourself to some fresh new pairs, and start steering your outfits away from your trusted skinnies. Here are some ideas for how to wear this classic and eternally flattering style of jean:
Stylish a la Victoria Beckham
Victoria is likely to pair her classic bootcuts with simple yet stylish block colour tops. A simple black vest top with dark denim, or a white top with lighter blue denim - it’s a wearable and casual look for the queen of high end style.
Sexy a la Megan Fox
Sex it up like Megan Fox by wearing curve-hugging sassy bootcut jeans with a low V t.shirt or vest top – and don’t forget a pair of heeled boots. The bootcut jean is definitely a curvy girl’s friend, as the shape of the jean helps to balance out curves and prevent a top heavy or pear shaped look.
Classic a la Jennifer Aniston
Jen-An loves her bootcuts, and has stayed faithful and true to this shape of denims while others have run away with the bootcut’s skinny sister. The former Friends star is the queen of classic dressing, with a laid back, yet highly polished style. Pair your bootcut jeans with a simple t.shirt in navy, white or black, and a longline cardigan and scarf to keep out any chill.
Dressed Down a la Jessica Alba
Pictures of Jessica Alba running around the park with her two girls in her bootcut jeans are commonplace, and the bootcut really is the perfect style to wear during ‘downtime’. Less restrictive than a skinny or a straight leg jean, especially when worn slightly lose on the leg, the bootcut is fantastic for running, playing or relaxing in. Gorgeous Jessica wears hers with converse and cardigans, for the ultimate low maintenance look.
Young a la Kate Middleton
Our Kate never puts a fashion foot wrong, and manages to wear her bootcuts in a way which is timeless yet still young. Pair blue, navy or black bootcuts with soft, feminine shirts (tucked in, of course), nautical stripes or thin knits for a look fit for a princess!
If you’re a little tired of squeezing into your skinnies, why not join the bootcut revival? You’ll be in good company with a clutch of sassy starlets leading the way, and are sure to find the bootcut jean a versatile buy.
