Bootcut pants have a long history. They originated in the 1850s, when cowboys and ranchers needed jeans that fit over their boots. Thanks to Hollywood western movies in the 40s and 50s, bootcut jeans became a piece of fashion, not just serviceable work pants. They disappeared for a bit in the 70s and 80s when extreme bell bottoms were all the rage. Thankfully, those intense bottoms came down in size, and today we love the subtle hems in a pair of women's bootcut pants.
Bootcut Jeans for the Casual Woman
Though the skinny pants look is still a plentiful fashion trend, loose jeans styles are becoming popular with women everywhere. Having several pairs of jeans, all boasting a different silhouette, increases your shoe and shirt options significantly, without ever requiring you to don a skirt or a pair of khakis. For the woman who loves to wear jeans, diversify your wardrobe with bootcut pants.
We love bootcut jeans because they're the perfect blend of boyfriend jeans and flare pants. A looser fit at your ankles with a tighter fit through your thighs and rear highlights the hourglass aspects of your figure. You get the perfect blend of the boyfriend pants' relaxed casual look, and the shapeliness of a flare jean, without the significant bell at the bottom.
Dress up bootcut jeans the same way you'd wear any other jeans, with one exception: plaid or flannel shirts can get a bit cowgirl when paired with a bootcut on the bottom. That's not necessarily a bad thing! You can do something similar if you've got a pair of Frye boots or cowboy boots. Ultimately, though, we recommend pairing t-shirts, button-downs, and tanks with bootcut jeans for that perfect casual yet put-together vibe.
Do the Bootcut at Work, Too
Straight leg pants are very versatile in a work wardrobe, but, let's be real, they feel a little boring sometimes. A few pairs of bootcut trousers will spice up those work outfits, even if you wear them in the same colors. Bootcut pants give you room to wear your favorite pair of heeled boots to work, boosting your confidence for important client meetings or presentations. They also offer a slightly more feminine silhouette than the typical trousers do.
