    SO glad to see the return of longer length jeans! Longer lengths are lengthening….makes us look taller and slimmer. In my opinion the ankle length is only flattering on the very tall.

    What I’m really dreaming of is the return of the Jcrew Matchstick cut. A true straight leg, slim without being *slim*, super lengthening, super flattering. Please, Jcrew …

  3. Colleen says:

    What kind of casual shoes do you wear with bootcuts? I feel frumpy wearing flats (including sneakers) with bootcuts and heels aren’t great when trying to chase around my preschooler.

    • Belle says:

      If you get the jeans tailored — typically a hem and nipped in knee area — they should look good with flats. I know people think of it as an extra step, but sometimes it’s necessary.

  4. Lisa says:

    Question: exactly where are bootcut jeans supposed to hit? My biggest peeve is having to have one length for flats and one for heels. Combine that with (usually) needing long inseam and it makes it really hard to find anything that looks right. I may be tired of my skinnies, but at least I have options shoe-wise since all of mine hit at the ankle.

    • Belle says:

      The front should just graze the top of the shoe. So it should basically touch the top of your toe. I have two pair of the same jeans hemmed for heels and flats. Is it an extra expense? Yes. Is it worth it? Also yes.

  5. De says:

    I second the Wit and Wisdom recommendation. I have them in petite and with the stretch they can accommodate some plus size (i.e. 16)

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
