I still think they are unflattering though. It does not matter how the cut is they always will emphasize your thighs. Fashion right now is becoming more conservative in the legs but showing off the bust more.
Maybe you'll find that the people wearing them actually have a mind of their own. Not like others that think that only the stuff that the "fashion" industry insist is right.

Only following the latest fashion trend is so blase. I for one prefer that people think for themselves.

Another vote FOR bootcut. they make my legs and butt look great. I have two pairs of skinny jeans, but you know what, my body has curves and they do not flatter.

This thread was just a reminder that I need to go jeans shopping.

I have a curvy figure. Large butt, large hips, large thighs, highly tapered waist (I'm a baby making factory, without ever having made any, hooray ).

Boot cut FLATTER my body. Skinny make me look like I went through a processing plant and tried to cut off circulation to the lower half of my body by encasing me in cling-wrap.

Hey everyone-I think the consensus is that boot cuts are here too stay regardless of what fashion dictates!

The "boot cut" confuses me because in some stores it's basically a skinny jean with a tiny flare at the ankle, whereas in other stores it's like a giant triangle flare from the knee down. In the first case of the tiny flare - I HATE jeans like that. So if that's what the OP is talking about, I'd agree I roll those jeans up a little and wear them with boots that way. If it's the more triangular flare, then that's what I like. I don't want actual flares, but I like a bit of triangular shape, or a totally straight shape.

And to be honest, the shape isn't such a big deal as long as the jeans have a nice dark rinse. And no bleached whiskering!

Last time I tried on "skinny" jeans it looked like I just hadn't made it to the bathroom in time.

It has to be the brand you're buying-they should not be tight anywhere-no resemblance any where to a skinny jean.
I have Lee riders that I bought at Walmart. Faded wash-no spandex-no low rise. Now they don't carry them anymore Now I will have to find a replacement.

I like my "out of fashion" boot cut jeans because... well... I wear boots. Beautiful Frye boots to be exact. Besides, my ars is kickin' in my boot cut jeans (according to the husband).

I really don't think boot jeans will ever really go out of style as they compliment a lot of figures unlike the the skinny leg and the wide leg.

Only my 2 cents
I agree. Whenever I buy something, first and foremost it must be comfy, and the phrase "in style" just isn't in my vocabulary
