are flared or bootcut jeans still ‘cool’?

Are they? It seems that boyfriend and skinny jeans are currently ruling the fashion roost, but I still like my bootcut jeans. And my thrifted military jacket thing. And I liked how my butt looked in my new ebay jeans.

I remember when ‘flared’ jeans first became cool, it was sometime between 1995 and 1996 and I was in 5th or 6th grade. I was happy to try these flared wonders. Before flared jeans, we wore tapered pants. They were pretty horrible. But trends change so quickly, I feel like I barely have time to enjoy them before they’re swept away and replaced with something new.

Now it’s your turn to chime in…are bootcut jeans still ‘in’ or is wearing considered a fashion faux pas?

    1. excellent! I love the jacket too. I found it at the thrift store and even thought it was too big, I bought it anyway (bad bad), I had a tailor cinch it a little in the waist but it’s still a tad large. oh well.

  1. I love my boot cut jean too! They are my abortive! I find them so flattering an comfortable but at the same time, I’m WELL aware that no one else is wearing them 🙂 I hope that boot legs and flares come back into fashion although I’m just getting used to the tapered pants which are back on style xoxo

    1. Gee, sorry about that spelling mistake there. ‘My abortive’ was supposed to be ‘my favorite’ ! That’s what I get for relying on my iPhone to spell for me 🙂

    2. HAHA, no worries. I figured it was autocorrect getting weird. I like skinny pants or straight leg pants but the high waisted “mom jeans” i’m still getting used to. I have 1 pair that I got at the thrift store.

  2. I’m happy to hear so many people say that ‘boot cut” jeans are still in. I love mine and wear them often. I actually can’t see where they will ever go completely out of style. They have a place in fashion, I think. BTW you look great in your boot cuts and Ann Taylor loft blose and Miltiary jacket. Nice styling !

  3. I’m short so personally I like skinnies because you can roll them and not spend money on hemming. I also have zero hips so they fit pretty well, where as I think bigger hips and longer gets look great in boot cut jeans.
