Skinny jeans have been around for some time now, and are still a coveted piece in a contemporary wardrobe. But this season we are seeing the return of the classic bootleg jeans, and I wonder if they had even gone away? To my eyes bootleg jeans clearly never went out of fashion, but skinny jeans took centre stage and it is no surprise that we thought skinnies were the only denim that were fashionable.
When it comes to choosing wardrobe staples, in particular denim, I believe you should look at what suits you as opposed to what is in fashion. If skinnies do not flatter you then classic bootleg or straight leg jeans are as fashionable and have similar style function, plus they exude simplicity, allure, sex appeal, and versatility.

Department stores can be a Mecca of labels, and thankfully close to home we have a few of these to spoil us.
