Hey I'm new to what to wear and I was thinking about this seasons style, and skinny jeans are a must have. But I am quite short and don't have the best legs, with my chubby thighs! I think they look really good on celebrities of course who have great figures. And Jeans are always my first buy first buy for the autumn and winter. So I was wondering if they was any advice from other people who are a similar size. Shall I just stick to the flattering bootcut style? Or go for the skinny jeans look anyway? Thanks for any replys. Luv Clare xxxxxxxxx

I say stick to what looks good on you and hold out for other trends that actually flatter your figure. Just my opinion, i'm 5'0 and i'm sticking with my boot cuts!

Hi Clare - a belated welcome to you!


I'd vote for boot cut jeans as well...in addition to being stylish, they should help to

Hi Claire,

Yes, I agree. Bootcut jeans are awesome! I just got advice on jeans. I bought a pair of bootcuts and wore them. I like the way I look in them. You should wear them. Also, you can dress them up.

Have a good day,

Chrissy

Hi Clare :) My name is Heather and I also think you should wear what looks good and feels good on you - NOT what the celebs are wearing. You will feel your best when you know you look your best. Like Oprah said the other week on her show (doing a "What Not To Wear" makeover show with those amazing British ladies) "Boot Cut Jeans Rock!!" Don't give in to trends just because Paris Hilton or some other 5'9" Skinny Mini is wearing them, you wear what YOU look good in!! Plus, Bootcut jeans are here to stay. A nice dark finished pair can be dressed up with chic heels, a satin cami and a boucle blazer and you'll look so hot you'll feel like a million bucks rather than feel self concsious of your hips and thighs if you choose to go with a trend. This way, you KNOW you look good. Do you ever watch the show "What Not To Wear" on TLC with Stacey and Clinton? OMG, they are awesome! They would say the exact same thing to you. With what you described in your post, boot cut is perfect for your shape. (Sorry for such a long post, I tend to ramble when I get excited, and I get excited about clothes and make-up and hair/skin products...hehehe)

Hugs,
Heather
