Seriously?

I could only imagine that a 2 year old would pull pants on over their boots.

I have never seen snappy crotch inseam jeans before that weren't for a 2 year old, and that might be practical.

No, it's jeans on before boots or shoes. And jeans tucked into cowboy boots looks really corny. Unless you're workin' on a ranch and almost knee-high in "you-know-what".

Only someone determined to miss the point would think you put your boots on BEFORE your jeans.

I already addressed this poster's misconception.

The legs are pulled down OVER the boots fgs.

If you don't like or NEED to wear bootcut jeans then don't.......it's not rocket science.

Bootcut jeans may not be stylish right now, but it's not like they're some dated wretched thing. Plenty of people still wear them just because wearing skinny or straight-legged jeans aren't always as comfortable. I prefer wearing my skinny and straight-legged jeans, sure... but I still have a couple of pairs of bootcuts that I love.

As long as CD refuses to lock and archive threads - old threads WILL be revived - that's just the way it is.

If you look good in skinnies, good for you! I won't, and I'm not wearing them.
Same...skinny jeans are just NOT an attractive option for women with wide hips and the usually-accompanying, full thighs. Not hating, here, that's my build, as well. I'd never wear them, because the effect IS that of looking like an upside down triangle. I work with a chick who constantly rocks skinny jeans regardless of the fact that she has super wide hips and ass and thick thighs, tapering down to spindly calves and ankles, and it really just looks cartoonish. She's young, but she's definitely NOT mastered dressing flatteringly for her build. Fashion victim mentality, because her "bestie" at work (and, yes, she says "bestie") is an itty-bitty former dancer who's about 5 feet tall and slender as all getout, dresses that way, and homegirl tries to copy it, with disastrous results. If your build is like Barney, why dress like Barbie?

I recognize this thread started a year ago, but as someone who's finally accepted skinny jeans, I'll still pick boot-cut any day with short dress boots and pumps. For some reason, I don't like how skinny jeans "sit" on top of the pump's heels, leaving them exposed. I'd rather have my heel covered unless I'm wearing a skirt.

Boot-cut jeans are not in fashion? Maybe not in the sense as they were a few years ago, but threads like these become less relevant as styles come and go. I'm sure in a few more years someone else may complain it may be time to retire the skinny jean.

I don't know why stores constantly market them to Americans. If you go to Europe you won't see them any where and would not be caught dead in them. It is not 1995 anymore! They are so unflattering on both men and women and are never stylish. Does anyone else agree? 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.
I can hardly think of anything that concerns me less.

The boot cut and straight cut are classic styles that never go away no matter what's in fashion and they will be here long after the skinny jean has gone to the fashion graveyard.
