One of the surest signs of fashion’s repetition cycle during recent years has been the dying out and subsequent resurgence of bootcut jeans. There was a time in the ‘90s and early 2000s when these blue denims were the only choice. When slim-cut and skinny jeans took over, baggier iterations were moved out by force. But the silhouette is back again with a vengeance, promising better shape and a new lease of comfort.
With a recent campaign by Diesel featuring Evan Mock and Julia Fox sporting a pair, the plight of the bootcut jean is being offered a helping hand by the right faces right now. As such, it's safe to say that the bootcut is going nowhere.
Trousers, as the linking piece between your kicks and your upper body garments, are always important. To find the ones that fit your wardrobe best, we’ve rounded up bootcut selections from the likes of Ahluwalia Studio, Loewe, and more for your perusal.

Jacquemus Le de Nimes Jeans
