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.
Sorry, but you have no idea what you are talking about. They are absolutely the most flattering style of jeans on a woman...hands down. Only the most trendy of fashion sites would say anything else.

Buying expensive clothes and taking an interest in fashion does not mean buying into marketing. I find these people usually have crafted a more individual appearance and/or a more aesthetically appealing one. So maybe they are special, physically speaking. Even if they are not, it still does not make them average.

Sure, there are fashion victims also, but they're still in less number than people who don't care about fashion at all. Again, maybe not special, but still not average.

And I didn't judge anyone's character. I noted that it was a typical mindset, not an unusual one. And those clothing stores have very generic, plain clothing that is poorly made. Acting like you're going against the tide to not "buy into" fashion doesn't make you unusual, period.

Sorry, Ma'am (OP), but if you wear boots, bootcut jeans are always in fashion.

I buy all my jeans (yeah, bootcuts too) at Old Navy's and they are just perfect for me as far as fit is concerned. Never been as amazing in jeans as I am now in my Old Navy's...

and better quality. I have bought jeans from the gap and old navy and they started to fall apart and fade after a few washings. My seven-for-all-maknkind jeans are 6 years old already and look as perfect as the day i got them.

If I can get in 'em and they zip, I'm good!

Kidding. I only wear skinny jeans. But I love a man in boot cut jeans. It's men over 35 in skinny jeans that I have a problem with. But if it makes you feel good, go for it!

Not always. I have a few friends that would blow away if the wind blew too hard, and they can't pull 'em off.

That's b/c they are for very skinny people...like .5% of the population or something. Fat people def. have no business wearing skinny jeans.
