Flattering, timeless and forever chic, designer bootcut jeans are a jean fit that never goes out of style. Bootcut jeans fit slim to the knee and flare subtly to the hem, elongating your frame for a more defined and flattering silhouette. Thanks to their slimming and sophisticated style, bootcut jeans are a timeless favourite time and time again.

Bringing style and sophistication to any outfit, bootcut jeans bring fresh femininity to your wardrobe, with a style and cut that seamlessly blends from day to night. The versatility of bootcut jeans allows you to effortlessly create timeless outfits that leave you feeling confident and comfortable with every step. Originally named ‘bootcut’ due to the fabric allowance making it easier to wear ankle boots, the bootcut jean fit has stuck around, first gaining prominence and popularity in the 90s before becoming a firm favourite for women to blend chic style with subtle sophistication.

Low rise

Low-rise bootcut jeans refer to a particular style of bootcut jeans. Low-rise jeans can be defined by where the waistband sits. Low-rise jeans feature a waistband that sits on the hip, for the ultimate laid-back look that’s super comfy and casual. You can explore our low-rise bootcut jeans here.

Mid-rise bootcut jeans will sit just between the hips and the navel, just below the natural waist. Covering more of the stomach than low-rise jeans, depending on your outfit, mid-rise bootcut jeans may be perfect for you. Mid-rise jeans provide coverage at the hips but work to elongate your legs, too.

Classy, chic and flattering, high-rise boot cut jeans can accentuate your figure and elongate your legs, adding a touch of sophistication to your everyday wear or evening wear.

Denim that includes a small percentage of stretch within the fabric allows for maximum comfort while still achieving a look of genuine, original denim. Women’s bootcut jeans that contain comfort stretch maintain shape perfectly to create a flattering silhouette while still being ultra-soft. For this timeless appeal and endless comfort, our collection of stretch denim designer bootcut jeans at Trilogy prove incredibly popular whatever the season.

What is the difference between bootcut jeans and flared jeans?

The key difference between bootcut jeans and flared jeans is in the silhouette. A bootcut kicks out from the knee subtly, whereas flared jeans feature a more dramatic bell bottom design, tapering out from the knee. Wide-leg jeans taper out immediately from the waistband, another key differentiation.
