Boot cut denim. I recently bought a pair. Yay or nay? Be honest. — Mallory Broussard

Dearest Mallory,

I am a big believer in doing denim the way that works best for you and your proportions. Here's a fact — skinny jeans are not everyone's friend. The latest in denim is truly all over the map from boyfriend jeans that are thrashed to super retro flares.

One of my favorites thus far are these light washed hippie chic jeans from Hemline. There is a similar pair at Shoe La La we're swooning over. And at Vanessa V. you'll find some Cookie Johnson CJ jeans that have some bootcut/flare action as well. Brother on the Boulevard has the full variety of denim including some pants with volume in the legs. Pair with wedges and peasant tops or worn little T-shirts for a laid back look that's a little bit rock and roll.
