Full length boyfriend jeans are hard to find, as are low heeled booties sans the Western cowboy vibe. Here are fab finds that fit the bill.
- Big Star Joey Slouchy Jeans: With a 34 inch inseam and tapered hem width, this length works for tall ladies with a little length to spare. You might need to size down if you prefer a less baggy and slouchy style. The hems and lower leg are wider so consider yourself warned if you prefer a streamlined fit. On the other hand, the fit is ideal for larger calves.
- True Religion Brianna Tumbleweed Boyfriend Jeans: This boyfriend jeans style is very streamlined. In fact, they look more like roomy straight legs than boyfriend jeans. They run true to size, but size up if you prefer a roomier fit. They are 100% cotton so no stretch and lots of authentic denim crunch.
- Cheap Monday Cube Heeled Ankle Boots: The refined-chunky appearance here is unique. A pointy toe with a cubed heel looks really fresh for Spring. The streamlined ankle fit is a plus and they are pretty comfortable after the addition of a cushioning insole. I found that the tops cut into my shins as I walked, which is why they didn’t work for me. But remember that I am Queen Fussy Feet, and will not compromise because I walk a lot and need to be comfortable. They might work for you.
- Jeffrey Campbell Oriley Ankle Boot: A forum member recommended these because they’re comfortable, edgy, and look great. The top flap folds down as an extra design feature, and you can tuck the front part of your skinnies into them for an interesting effect. A great cut-out style for Spring.
Jeans worn with booties, in all sorts of combinations, has become one of the most popular casual bottoms combinations for my clients. It’s rivaling the oh-so-practical combination of jeggings tucked into tall boots.
