Put away your skinnies- the bootcut is back as Spring’s favorite denim jean. Cropping up on this Season’s Runway from Tommy Hilfiger to Anna Sui, this denim style is making a comeback. This week, our fashion blogger Natalie shows how you can mix and match items from your closet with the bootcut jean for seven completely different looks, one for each day of the week. Whether it’s time to search for your favorite bootcuts from the back of your closet or time to shop for some new ones, these are your “go to” jeans for the year.
MONDAY WORK WEAR
With the right accessories, you can bring the bootcut jean into your workplace this Season. Pair your denim with a tailored blouse and blazer for a sophisticated style. Accessorize with gold bangles and layered gold necklaces, finishing with mid-rise heels for all day comfort and style. Get the look with AC Collection’s medium or dark wash bootcuts paired with Frame Denim’s crisp white top and tailored blazer from Paige. Accessorize with gold bangles from Max & Chloe and black open-toes heels from Moschino for a perfect polished work wear style.
TUESDAY LUNCH WITH THE GIRLS
Segue into a chill lunch with the girls by pairing your bootcut jeans with a blouse and chic leather jacket. Our fashion blogger Natalie suggests pairing the jeans with a cool cotton black blouse top and leather jacket paired with heels and a Michael Kors handbag. Get a similar look with bootcut jeans from Citizen’s of Humanity and a woven black blouse from Asos adding a black leather jacket from River Island and a bright blue handbag from Michael Kors. You are sure to turn heads at the restaurant and “wow” your friends with your chic trendy style.
WEDNESDAY WIND DOWN
Take a mid-week “getaway,” and head to the beach, pool, or park for a little R & R. Revive and rejuvenate yourself by taking a little time away from the busy week to soak up the sun’s rays and enjoy nature. No need to pack extra clothes for your Hump Day break. Take a tip from Natalie and throw on a swimsuit under your bootcut jeans, a white button down tied at the waist, and flat sandals. Get a similar look with Hudson’s signature bootcut jeans, a crisp white button down from Brooks Brothers, and flat sandals from Tory Burch. Shop a wide selection of cute swimsuit tops from Hale Bob for the perfect summer beachside style.
We love Jennifer Aniston’s simple yet chic street wear style, perfect for everyday errands. Simply throw on your bootcuts, a white tee, and sandals and you are ready for the day. No need for numerous accessories, take Jennifer’s approach and go simple with a straw hat from Selfridge’s & Co and Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses. If you’d like to squeeze in a mid-day workout, pair your look with sneakers and pack a pair of shorts in your handbag. Our blogger Natalie suggests bootcut jeans from Mother with a black Tee and black sneakers from Guess. Get a similar style with Mother’s “The Outsider” bootcut jeans, a black or white V-neck Tee from Tommy Hilfiger, Guess’ “Lanelan” black sneakers and Yosi Samra flat sandals for your post-workout street wear.
FRIDAY NIGHT MUSIC CONCERT
“We flawless, ladies tell ’em. Say I look so good tonight.” Take a tip from Beyonce’s “Flawless” and rock your Friday night with confidence and style. The superstar sports jeans paired with a comfy Tee, black leather jacket, boho floppy hat, and heeled booties. Get “concert ready” with 7 For All Mankind’s dark wash bootcuts, layered with Rag & Bone’s soft grey Tee, and black leather jacket from Topshop. Our blogger Natalie suggests accessorizing with a BCBGeneration black floppy hat and tall booties from Steve Madden for Beyonce’s celebrity style, or go “Boho” with Steve Madden’s fringed western styled booties. Either way, you are sure to shine like a star.
SATURDAY DATE NIGHT
Get “date night” ready in a flash with a slouchy sweater, heels, and a black and gold trimmed clutch for a simple but classic style. Our fashion blogger Natalie suggests William Rast bootcut jeans, a black silk cashmere sweater from Los Angeles-based designer Madison, and a Michael Kors black and gold clutch. Get ready to dance the night away with chic Loeffler Randall black suede heels or go for a high fashion look with BCBGMAXAZARIA’s caged ankle booties. Natalie says, “Spritz on a little hair gloss from Marrakesh, tousle your hair, swipe on a touch of lipgloss, and you are ready to hit the town in style this Saturday night.”
SUNDAY DRESS UP
Make your jeans go the extra mile and dress up your weekend look with your favorite bootcuts paired with a delicate lace top and strappy heels. Natalie likes 7 For All Mankind’s dark wash bootcut jeans, layered with Hale Bob’s black lace bodysuit, finishing with strappy lace sandals from Dolce Vida. She suggests anticipating summer’s sun by brushing on Too Faced’s brand new Little Black Book of Bronzer, a collection of eight exclusive colors catered to any skin tone, and completing your Sunday look with a swipe of Clinique’s new moisturizing lipstick and primer.
It goes without saying boots are your bootcuts’ best friend. Dress “Stagecoach”-style this week with your favorite bootcut jeans accessorized with western cut boots. For a perfect “Country Chic” look, Natalie suggests “The Outsider” bootcut jeans from Mother paired with Hale Bob’s silk chiffon ivory blouse and Ariat Billie western booties. Or, try a pop of color with a yellow beaded floral top from Hale Bob.
