Bootcut jeans are stylish and universally flattering to women of all body types. This jean style is straight through the thigh, and kicks out just below the knee to create a gently widened hem (typically about an inch wider than the knee). You can dress up versatile bootcut jeans to wear out on a date, style them with classic separates for the office, or wear them to create a more casual look. Take a look at these fashionable outfit ideas for what to wear with bootcut jeans to look right now.

Meeting the girls for brunch is a time when you want to look put-together and stylish, but without too much fuss. Bootcut jeans in a medium wash are a perfect match for a basic tank and cropped cotton jacket. Round toed shoes with a low heel are wearable and match perfectly with this comfortable ensemble. Add a statement necklace and you're fashionably ready to head out shopping or browsing art galleries after brunch.

Wear this outfit to parent-teacher events for an easy, put-together style. Start with dark wash bootcut jeans, layer on a colorful turtleneck, then top it with a belted pullover or wrap sweater in a neutral shade. Push up your sweater sleeves to show off the layer that's underneath, for a casual touch that's also stylish. You can also create this look with a buttoned up cardigan sweater on top -- just cinch your waist over the sweater with a slim belt. Wear this outfit with stack heel loafers or heeled ankle boots.

Dress up bootcut jeans for cocktails with the crew, or a fun evening out with someone special. Pairing these jeans with a sexy, attention-getting blouse is your key to instant going-out style. You can wear a shimmery top with sequins or a sparkly finish. Or, try a sheer lace blouse over a camisole in the same color for a naughty peekaboo look that's still covered-up enough to wear around colleagues or a first date. Accessorize your outfit with a big cocktail ring. Finish the look with fierce high heels or a dressy wedge ankle boot.

Bootcut jeans are tailor made for wearing to the office, especially in a dark wash. If you're allowed to wear jeans to the office, you can't go wrong in a well-fitting bootcut jean and a pretty, printed blouse. For the most professional look, style your outfit with the right accessories. A good quality watch, classic high heel pumps, and a big leather tote in a neutral color are fashionable ways to show your co-workers you mean business.

Office Outfit

You'll look professional -- and promotable -- in jeans for the office with this outfit. Dark wash bootcut jeans match perfectly with mixed prints in grown-up fabrics like linen and tweed. A cropped jacket is current, while still being appropriate for meetings with clients or your boss. When you're wearing a lot of print or texture, keep accessories to a minimum. A delicate bracelet and a pair of stud earrings add the right finishing touches. Platform heels in nude or black are comfortable and help dress up your look, too.

When you have a daytime date with someone special, you want to look fresh and pretty without seeming like you're trying hard. We love the look of slimming dark wash bootcut jeans in a medium-high rise, which are flattering to just about every woman's body type. Pair your go-to jeans with a soft, white blouse and layer a long, gold-tone chain necklace over top. High heels are a must-have accessory with this look, and will help to elongate and slenderize your legs. A soft, floppy hat is an extra touch that you can add to take this look to the next level.

Heading outside in the snow with someone special? You'll stay warm and look adorable in this easy outfit with dark wash bootcut jeans. A cozy white turtleneck sweater looks pretty tucked into jeans. Top your easy outfit with a quilted, three-quarter length parka for warmth and style -- you can choose one with faux fur detail on the hood for a fashionable touch. Or wear a cute pair of furry earmuffs, such as the wired pair pictured here that are great for listening to music, to keep your ears warm in a way that doesn't mess up your hair. Keep feet warm in a pair of flat boots that can stand up to winter conditions.

We like the easy look of bootcut jeans with a tank top for weekend. Choose an easy top with special details to keep your look interesting in this simple silhouette. You'll look most stylish in a slim-fitting pair of bootcut jeans that conform well to your body's curves. You could dress up this look with high heels, but a pointy toe flat will also look chic and be comfortable for all your weekend activities.
