Outfits with bootcut jeans for women. Thanks to classic sitcoms like Friends, ’90s clothing is making quite the comeback as of late. And sprinkled in with all the scrunchies, high-waist mom jeans, and Keds are the quintessential 1980s/1990s staple: the bootcut jean.
Easily one of the most recognized of its class, boot cut jeans have been around for several decades. They have been mostly overshadowed by skinny or straight jeans and yet, when worn right, they remain a totally cute and classic clothing item that, yes, you can definitely still wear in 2020! It’s all about how you style them. Keep in mind that the classic bootcut jean is not the same as bell-bottom jeans or flared pants. Those are probably what you think of, especially if you are looking at ’80s fashion! The classic bootcut is not as excessive or in your face as flared jeans or bell bottoms. They are much easier to work with and style! So let that encourage you in your quest to wear bootcut jeans in 2020.

I agree with Yoyo. The 60’s/70’s hippies brought the flares to life! The 80s were more high waisted or bagged jeans/pants.
