So it seems from the comments on this post that most of us are still favoring the bootcut style. And it’s no wonder. It does seem to be the most universally flattering style of pant.
Personally, on me, the bootcut is my favorite all-around cut of jean, and it’s definitely my preferred cut for wearing with heels. I hope they stay around for-EV-er.
But. I do like to wear straight-leg jeans with a ballet flat.
The straight cut is a great way to get in on the skinny jean trend without actually wearing skinny jeans. Because, as Sheila pointed out in my comments, anything with “skinny” in the title has a little too much expectation. (That cracked me up.)
I would go so far as to say that skinny jeans are flattering on approximately 1% of the general population, and of that 1%, only a small fraction of them are women over 30. Straight-leg jeans, however, are much more forgiving.
Then there is always the wide-leg jean. I’m not a huge fan of it, but I know that it can be flattering on some.
I’m pretty sure how this is going to play out, but out of curiosity, here’s a poll. What’s your favorite cut of jeans?
