Women's bootcut jeans are having something of a style revival, with flare finishes adding flair to spring and summer wardrobes. Choose extra-long lengths to channel the 70s comeback look, or opt for pastel shades to bring this season's prettiest colour palette into your wardrobe.
The minimalist look of slim-fits and skinnies is being overtaken on the catwalks by women's bootcut jeans. Less over-the-top than 1970's flares, bootcuts are figure-hugging where it counts, with longer leg lengths than straight-cut jeans, that are finished with a bit of a kick. Combined with high-waists, bootcut jeans are leg stretching and totally flattering, but if you'd still rather reveal your ankles, there's even bootcuts cropped at mid-calf, or ankle height. Although designed to go over the neck of boots, bootcut jeans with raw fringed hems can look fashion inspired with ballerinas and low-top trainers.
Classic indigo women's bootcut jeans give a touch of retro with white Tees and leather jackets, or layer smartly with plaid shirts peeking out from under navy knits. For more dressed-up looks, swap jumpers for relaxed-cut blazers and add a pair of heeled sandals. With pointed toe ankle boots and delicate lace tops bootcut jeans are instantly ready to hit the town for fun nights out. Or, pair your bootcuts with cropped tops, to kill two trends at once, finishing with pretty flower crowns just in time for the festival season. If you can get away with jeans in the office, smarten bootcuts up with platform sandals, shirt-top bodysuits and sleek leather women's belts.
