I got these boot cut style jeans right after I had my son. Twelve years ago. I remember the hubby encouraging me to get them because it was the first pair of non-maternity jeans I was going to be able to fit into. What a thrill.
Back then, before the days of the skinny jean, the fit that everyone was wearing was this low rise boot cut (or even flared leg) style. I was certain these would become instant classics.
Then, by the time I'd had my daughter three years later, I remember being on the hunt for a pair of skinny jeans. I hung onto these, though. I liked that they had a more dressy pant style at the top (not a typical pair of jeans, more like trousers). And of course, my sisters coveted them, so I made sure to keep them.
Now I look at jean styles in shops like Urban Outfitters, Gap or on style websites, and I can see this flared style is making a comeback. That means my jeans are vintage, baby.
