Do you ever wonder how some ladies get their jeans tucked into boots and have it look good? There are plenty of treats going around for Halloween, but I think now's the perfect time for a trick.
One of the tricks for a proper tuck involves skinny jeans, and no, you don't have to be skinny to wear them!
When I wrote about What to Wear to a Rock Show, I thought a great look would be wearing jeans tucked into boots with a tunic. cafemama asked for a tutorial on exactly how to do this since none of her jeans fit into boots.
Here's what you will need:
- Skinny jeans (aka slim cut, aka tapered leg)
- Slim socks, not bunchy and mid-calf length
- Boots that have some room at shaft
Step 1: Put on the skinny jeans (note: you don't have to be skinny to wear them). If jeans are too long, fold over so the end of jean is at ankle.
Step 2: Tuck jeans into socks first.
Step 3: Pull on long shaft boot like photo at top and voila! no major bunching!
If you want to wear short boots like photo at left, follow same steps just be aware of the length of your sock and fold so it doesn't peek out. You can fold jeans under instead of over so the underside doesn't show.
If you don't have skinny jeans, you can tuck boot cut denim into high shafted boots. Flairs and bell bottoms won't work well.
To tuck boot cut jeans into boots:
Step 1: Fold over so end of jean is at ankle.
Step 2: Grasp extra fabric at side seam inside your calf and fold vertically so it's tight at calf.
Step 3: Pull tight socks over to maintain fold.
Step 4: Pull on long shaft boot like photo at top and voila! no major bunching!
