If the shaft is short it looks really dumb when they're tucked inside.
Why in the world would you put your boots on before your jeans????

You don't - you pull the jeans legs down OVER the boots

I don't really care. Skinny jeans don't compliment me.

Just because something is "in", doesn't mean it looks good on you. I see people walking around in trendy clothing all the time and it just doesn't work to their advantage. It's really about what suits your body, personality, coloring, etc. the best.

Can you post a pic of what you call boot cut? Boot cut and flares will never go out of style or should I say I personally could give 2 craps what some fashionista writing for whatever magazine thinks. I guess straight leg high waisted "mom jeans" or skinny jeans which show every bulge and make thin legs look even thinner or big legs look like a pig stuffed in a blanket..those look better. I would not be caught DEAD in a pair of skinny jeans. The only pants I will wear that are tight on the bottom are leggings..

I know a lot of you seem to just be ga-ga over them and I'm not interested in you unless you have a valid argument how they make you look good. It is like people want their bodies to look like triangles. You might as well put on a skin tight shirt and put your hair up in one thin long point to accentuate that look.
If you don't like them don't wear them. Stop worrying about what other people are doing and wearing. It's none of your effing business anyway.

this is an old thread but ...
meh I don't follow fashion trends anyway.
I don't wear boot-cut either. Not because its not in fashion but because they don't suit me.

Doesn't worry me if other people do.

If you look good in skinnies, good for you! I won't, and I'm not wearing them.
Me too, Julia. I like skinny jeans on others. My hips look huge in them. My mirror will not lie to me. I'm in between bootcut and skinny.

You honestly sound like a brat. Such a fashionista. Hate to say it, but people that follow fashion that close are ridiculous. Unless you are in the industry, I laugh at the girls and guys that follow the newest trends to a T, and then have no money or go into debt over it. I know plenty and they never realize how ridiculous they look and how silly it sounds to make judgements (like it seems you do) based on someones clothing.

For the record I'm wearing skinny jeans, I hope you think I'm cool
