The Boot-cut Jeans

The boot cut jeans normally taper at the knee and then slightly flare out to accommodate a boot. They were designed to fit every body shape. They curve around the hips and are tight in the upper thigh. They are especially popular for women because they make the legs look long and lean—a much more forgiving and versatile style than skinny jeans, I think.

The boot cut jeans, which are my favorite jeans cut is another wardrobe classic. Some fashion stylist would disagree with me though but you be the judge ladies. They are my go to style for casual Fridays. You ca never go wrong with them.

Two Things to Look out for While Buying your Bootcut Jeans

1. Be mindful of the waist. As with any jeans, there are low-waist, mid-rise and high-rise versions.

  • Low-rise bootcut jeans are only for the most svelte people. They sit below the hips and create a muffin-top look if you have any hip fat. When in doubt, move on to mid-rise styles.
  • Mid-rise bootcut jeans are the average pair of jeans. They rise above the hips but below your belly button, to provide coverage and prevent muffin top.
  • High-rise bootcut jeans are generally for the most fashion forward individuals who are comfortable with this somewhat constrictive cut. They are also a good option if you want to cover your stomach to the waist and wear sweaters or tunics with your jeans.¹


2. The boot cut jeans is all about the shoes. Buy pairs that are 1 or 2 inches longer than your inseam if you intend to wear them with boots or high heels.
