Fashionista Friday Boots and Jeans!

I promised my loyal followers...all 10 of you that I would make up for missing my post last week.  I know you LOVE my fashion tips. 

Following these tips when wearing boots and jeans promises to make you slimmer in seconds!

Mid calf Boot + Dark Denim = TRIM THIGHS    Sign me up!
Light brown or gray boots with a hint of slouch with darker denim draws the eye downward away from thighs.  Stay away from dark bulky boots and skintight light wash jeans.

Booties + Tucked Jeans = ADDED HEIGHT    Now, I can't choose.  Slim thighs or height?  I need both!
Tucking faded denim into rugged booties of similar shade optically stretches the leg line from hip to toe.  No high heels required!  If you cuff jeans above short boots it "chops" of legs at the ankles and give the high water look.  YIKES!

Tall Boots + Dark Denim = EXTENDED LEGS
Dark, skinny leg jeans under black slim fitting boots forms an unbroken vertical line that optically stretches legs for miles. No chunky heeled boots or washed out denim. 

I know all of you are dashing out the door to buy some new skinny jeans and boots.  I love boots and jeans almost as much as I love my brooks and reefs. 

Do you have a pair of skinny jeans?  Where did you buy them?  
I have one pair from New York and Company that are "straight leg".  On me, that works for skinny.  I also have a pair of skinny jeans from Old Navy but I'm not crazy about the wash.  I need to go shopping!

Do you have a favorite pair of boots?
I have a love affair with all shoes, but especially boots in the colder months.  I have been wanting to buy a pair of those booties, but haven't gotten up the nerve to do so.  I love my tall black boots with the kitten heel and my chocolate brown slouch boots with heels.  My favorite "flat" boots are my black suede Steve Madden slouch boots and tan "riding" style boots.  I also flaunt my red and black corral boots when I want to be "COUNTRY". 

Happy Fashionista Friday!
