The bootcut originates in the 1800s. Back then, laborers wore jeans primarily as work pants. Clothing manufacturers cut those pants with a slight flare to accommodate work boots. Bootcut pants are a popular alternative to the flashier flare and bell-bottom pants that were popular a few decades ago. Bootcut pants' subtle design makes them attractive on both genders and all ages.
Styling Bootcut Dress Pants
Most parents know how much kids dislike getting dressed up for special occasions. Boys' bootcut pants come in more options than just jeans. Shop around at thredUP for pairs of corduroy or khakis with a slight bootcut. Your kids will appreciate the extra fashion sense in the dress pants. Plus, if the affair isn't too fancy, your kid can wear a favorite pair of boots with those dress pants, instead of dress shoes.
Paired with a plaid button-down, bootcut khakis make a nice outfit. Navy bootcut khakis are a good compromise for any kid who hates dressing up. They're more comfortable than true dress pants, but they're still appropriate for most dressy occasions. Lands' End makes quality navy khakis for boys that you can find at thredUP.
Picking Out Snow Pants
Some bootcut pants are actually made to accommodate a pair of boots. At thredUP you'll find snow pants among the boys' pants choices. Some snow pants have skinny legs so you can tuck them inside your snow boots, but most have a wide leg so you can pull them down over a pair of snow boots. The best snow pants come with bib overalls to keep your kids covered while they have fun in the snow.
Casual Bootcut Pants
For a casual pair of pants, check out boys' bootcut jeans. The bootcut leg's slight flare adds some fun to any pair of jeans. Let your kids dress them up or down by choosing different washes. Jeans make great school clothes that transition seamlessly into the weekend. Cargo pants, too, have enough room in the leg for a pair of boots and are a casual option for boys that you can find at thredUP. Boys love the pockets in cargo pants, giving them plenty of places to hide knickknacks, money, cell phones, and iPods.
