Embracing the Benefits of Bootcut Jeans
Whether your curves are kickin’ or your booty is barely there, the bootcut fit is right for you. The beauty of the jean lies in its ability to flatter any figure. Let us be your guiding light for finding the jean that will flaunt your every curve.
A bountiful bum and a dainty waist are features that define a pear shaped figure. Balance out your bottom with a pair of bootcut jeans that has a slight flare. A crisp, dark wash sans fading, will be the most flattering on your figure. Highlight your lustrous curves, while slimming your silhouette. Looking for a pair that will do a little more for your derrière? Choose a style that features larger back pockets without detailing to minimize the appearance of your backside.
If your body is defined by narrow hips and muscular legs, you are a natural born athlete. Flatter your figure with a pair of bootcut jeans. The key to carving out a curvier shape is by creating the illusion of a contoured hip. A well-fitted pair of bootcut jeans should hug your hips and bottom and have a looser fit through the calf. To accentuate your shape, choose a pair with strong stitching to draw attention to the outline of your frame. Opt for a peplum or flared top for added accentuation.
Vertically challenged? Reach your full potential with a pair of elongating bootcut jeans. You can make your legs look like they go for miles when you invest in a pair of denim with the right features. A dark wash, with a slender cut long enough to lay over a pair of heels will add inches your silhouette. Maximize the effect when you choose a pair that is also high waisted.
With a pair of jeans that works as hard for your figure as you do, you can be sure bootcut is worth adding to your arsenal of denim jeans.
