Nowadays, it would be almost impossible to go out without seeing someone wearing jeans. In our opinion, they are everywhere and for good reasons. Buying jeans can be a frustrating experience. It seems that everyone is welcome to the tall and weak kids of the latest trends. This is not easy at all. In this article we set out to analyze straight leg vs bootcut jeans.
It is difficult to find another type of pants as comfortable and as versatile as jeans. There is no doubt about it. The different cuts and styles available make it even easier to match them with different tops and shoes, leaving possibilities for many styles of outfits.
The Straight Jeans
Straight jeans sit more relaxed on the thighs and hips and descend along the tubular leg, without widening or narrowing. Good for many types of silhouettes, but especially for more voluptuous women who do not feel the need to add more volume through the fluttering bases of the flare or the skinny folds.
Their style is also quite fitting for formal occasions, unlike other types of jeans which may be great for casual events and daily errands, but are not suitable to wear to a meeting or formal event.
They are also quite easy to style with different types of shoes and both heels and flats, as well as sneakers can really go with them.
This pair is a popular outfit among petite women, as it makes them appear taller than they actually are. But not exclusively for sure. They are straight all over the leg and do not taper or flare below the knee. In short, the girth of the jeans is the same at the ankle and the knee level. Unlike bootlegs, they end just above the ankle. For both men and women, tall boots go well with this type as it can be tucked inside the boots to enhance the style factor.Wedge heels, pointed and peep toe pumps, platforms, etc., are some of the best shoe accessories to be put on with these jeans for women. They are apt for formal occasions. However, women can also put them on for clubbing and other occasions and look absolutely fab.
The Boot-cut Jeans
Famous, which I keep preaching and show to any woman looking for jeans to look good. They are tight on the thighs and bottom and start to widen around the legs just enough to fit perfectly on a boot, without leaving material to flutter. In order to lengthen and give the impression of being thin, it is good to wear them with medium or high heels, and their length to be so large that, standing, only the top of the shoe can be seen. It balances wonderfully the silhouette of women with voluminous thighs.
These are fashionable and at the same time comfortable, worn mostly high or low at the waist with the girth tapering near the knee and then increasing towards the ankle. They have a flare wide enough to cover your shoes. In the earlier days, they were a favorite among sailors. This is because, the loose fitting below the knee enabled easy rolling / folding of the jeans, even in messy conditions.
When buying these jeans, one must take care of the cut of the material and the fitting. Slimmer people can opt for those with a low rise. Plump people can choose a pair with dark shades in the thigh region. This makes the figure look slim. Usually these jeans look good on tall and healthy people, as they are good at disguising curves. Hence, they are best for curvy women! They pair best with boots. Nowadays they are worn by men too as they add an extra cowboy touch to their masculinity. They are suitable for holidays, casual meets, catching up with friends or family over dinner, and other fun-filled occasions.
Straight Jeans vs. Boot-cut Jeans- Differences
While these two styles of jeans bear some semblance since one is a derivation of the other, they are quite different and it’s really hard to mistake one for the other.
Thigh area – Bootcut jeans are tighter at the thighs than straight jeans.
Formal or informal – Bootcut jeans offer a more casual look and are not worn in offices.
Cut – Cut straight through and through, the straight leg jeans has the same leg diameter from the leg opening down to the ankle. The boot-cut, on the other hand, starts out straight at the hips and then tapers at the knees, from which it then widens out.
The Rise and Lengt – While both of these styles can come in high and low rises, the length is different between the two. The boot-cut jeans are longer than the regular straight leg ones, especially the women’s designs. This is due to the fact that the boot-cut is made to cover the back of the boot and that’s why it is typically just above the floor in length.
