Skinny jeans would be great. However, like you, I am not a perfect size 0 so skinny jeans looks weird on me.  Options 1: leggings, loose top that goes all the way down to thigh or above the knee, belt on the loose top to emphasize your waist, and boots.  Option 2: I buy the brand “Not Your Daughter’s Jeans” from Nordstrom. Good quality jeans, stretchy coz it is specially made to lift your but up and tuck your stomach in. You can choose from boot cut or skinny (I use the boot cut).  The material is not too clingy like skinny jeans but “skinny” enough to tuck inside the boots.  Hope that helps!

You pretty much have to use skinny or straight leg jeans to do it.  Wide legged jeans have too much material to stuff into the boot and are too loose on top to get that “look”

Yes, skinny jeans are a good route for this BUT I’ve also seen women roll their jeans to the top of their boots and wear them this way.

I have one pair of skinny jeans that I only wear with boots. I like my boots to hit mid calf, but it’s more of a personal preference.

I have a cheap pair of $15 skinny jeans I bought from Kohl’s (they’re just regular length and I need long, so they’re ONLY for wearing with boots) that I wear with boots. Otherwise they get bunched up in my boot and start slipping out. The skinny jeans (which look ridiculous on me otherwise) stay inside. And they were only $15 =]

I buy cheap skinny jeans to wear with boots! Wide leg probably won’t work because as a PP said, there is too much fabric and you don’t get the right look.

@EJS: I do the same thing.  I need long length for all other jeans but with skinny jeans I can wear regular!

Yeah, you need skinnier jeans.  Wide legged jeans won’t fit in the boots.  I tuck my jeans into my socks to make sure they stay put… that can help if the jeans aren’t quite “skinny” enough at the bottom. 

I like the boots that hit mid to upper calf, 3-4 inches below the knee.

I agree with blueshoes2, I also tuck my jeans into my socks.  I have these big ol white tube socks that I put on over my jeans.  It keeps the jeans from rolling up and it keeps then nice and tight inside the boots.

I wear skinny jeans but straight leg or boot cut works if you can fold the excess material inside the boot smoothly. I’ve also seen people who roll their jeans or leave them loosely on top of the boots as stephinPA mentioned too.

Skinny jeans are easiest, but I also wear straight leg and boot cut sometimes.  If it’s not too much extra fabric you can fold it over at the bottom of the pant.

This might be kind of obvious, but if you have high boots, you probably want a zipper on the side to make it easier to put on over jeans.  If it doesn’t have a zipper it can be next to impossible to wear them over pants.

I guess I just don’t understand the look…I walk around the mall and go “Why?”

I wish jeans could just be jeans. but everyone is going to the skinny jeans…and they aren’t a style everyone can wear. 🙁

Maybe it’s just me?
