Bootcut jeans are having a big comeback and we’re here for it. But what are bootcut jeans and why do we love them so much? Bootcut jeans got their name from, you guessed it, cowboy boots.Their slightly flared legs make it easy to slip on a pair of tall boots while staying comfortable. But we love them because they’re also great for creating long looks and unexpected outfits. Let us at Dia & Co help you create a few with our styling tips.
The best plus size bootcut jeans are ones that fit you well without digging into your hips or gapping at the back. High waisted bootcut jeans will better fit anyone with wider hips (like those with pear and apple shapes), though anyone can rock high rise bootcut jeans, depending on the style. Mid-rise bootcut jeans are the standard and most people will love wearing them with button-up shirts. Low-cut bootcut jeans are daring and usually require a fun belt, but if you can score a pair you love and feel comfy them, go for it!
Bootcut plus size jeans can look great on every body, but they might not fit everyone’s style—they’re more of an extension of your personality and even your preferred footwear. If you love wearing boots, clogs, heels, and sandals, then you can easily fit bootcut jeans and bootcut pants into your wardrobe. If you’re more of a sneakers person, skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans or cropped jeans might be more your thing.
Plus size black bootcut jeans might be where you start with this style because black goes with everything. Plus, you can style them up for work (and no one will notice they’re not bootcut trousers). White bootcut jeans are a great alternative for trousers in the spring and will work well with all the fancy spring and summertime shirts you love. Dark wash bootcut jeans look more professional and sleek, while light wash bootcut jeans feel airier for warmer weather. Distressed bootcut jeans offer an edge to your look, too, if that’s what you’re looking for. The way you style your jeans is all up to you, so feel free to play with different colors, rises and washes.
What to Wear with bootcut jeans isn’t a difficult conundrum, nor should it be. Since bootcut jeans are slim through the hip and thigh with a slight flare at the kick, you can style them similarly to your skinny jeans. They’re different from flared jeans in that flared (and bell bottom) jeans have a much wider bottom hem. And while flared jeans are more casual, bootcut jeans can transition to the workplace as sophisticated friday jeans or as chic going-out jeans with the right footwear.
It’s also not difficult to find the right shoes to wear with bootcut jeans. Boots might be the quintessential option, but sleek heeled sandals or pumps work great, too. The pointy toe of a pump or kitten heel makes for a great silhouette with bootcut jeans while offering you some extra height and length. How long should plus size bootcut jeans be? They should graze the floor without shoes on but remain at least an inch off the floor with shoes on. For a unique look, you can also cuff bootcut jeans. With the help of an iron, roll the hems up two inches (or however short you’d like) and press them to make a definitive cuff.
