Bootleg jeans have been maintaining a fashionable presence since they first came to the fore in the ’90s (thank you, Dawson's Creek and The Gilmore Girls). As Laurie and Potter and everyone else have discovered since, is that bootleg jeans are major-league wearable plus incredibly flattering. Plus bootlegs combine the best aspects of skinnies and wide-legged jeans. Curvy women love their hip-hugging, waist-defining cut that exercise all the control they need on top of streamlining legs in the same way skinnies do. The most popular way of wearing bootlegs is with a cropped jacket and heels that further elongates and slims the legs. Dark blue and indigo further add to their slimming effect, giving you a boost in all the right places. Bring this look up to date by swapping your cropped jacket for a bomber and a T-shirt and relive one of the ’90s most copied looks. Contemporary bootcuts can take on any style from boho to French chic. To nail the festival-inspired look, channel Woodstock with tan boots, fringing and round sunnies and/or a wide-brimmed hat. Dark bootcut jeans exude Parisian flair and are the go-to option if you have to go straight from work to drinks or dinner. Team it with a silky blouse and chunky heels for a mood look or chunky accessories to make an eye-catching statement. With their skinny-on-top, flared-below-the-knee legs, bootleg jeans in whichever shade of blue – washed out and faded to white or darkest black – are not going anywhere, but they will take you places!
