Who can wear them? The better question would be: Who can’t wear them? “They flatter those who are trying to balance out their curves as well as those trying to create the illusion of curves,” says Crotty.
How should they fit? For the most up-to-date look, opt for streamlined bootcuts. That means the jeans taper at the knees, then get slightly wider as they reach the floor—just enough so boots can fit underneath.
How to Wear Them
The most modern way, whether you go casual, dressy, or somewhere in between, is with a loose, tucked-in top, a slim belt, and fun footwear.
