Fashion Lab: Jeans Tucked Into Boots
Until one day last week. Walking at noon with my husband, I happened to notice a lady on the other side of the street. Her boots were very like mine, and she looked quite normal wearing them with jeans tucked in. With the color value similarity of the dark jeans and brown boots, her legs looked like legs (not hams on pedestals, which was my fear).
The other thing I noticed was that her top was a light color, in contrast to the pant/boot combination.
"Ah ha!" Maybe that's the trick.
So here you have it:
- What I actually wore today. Since I was the greeting mentor at our MOPS group, I wore my Eddie Bauer Seattle Suede jean jacket over my sweater.
- The look I am testing: dark jeans, tucked into knee-high boots, topped by a light colored top. I think it works!
- For the sake of comparison, the same look only with a dark brown top.
What do you think of jeans tucked into boots? What techniques have you successfully used?
