How do you like your jeans to fit? I prefer a skinny leg pant, myself. Although, I do remember a time when I was simply obsessed with flare jeans and bell bottoms. Fashion is cyclical. It is definitely making its way back into our closets and stores. I did the bootcut thing in college, but for right now, skinny leg is the way to go. It works great wit an oversized top, playing with proportions.
If you like a little more balance in your silhouette, the bootcut jean is your best bet. It allows for more flexibility in the the type of tops you can choose. Put on some flares to create the illusion of a smaller top. The best way to find out which works the best, is to try the different styles on!
Rock and Republic also carries cropped jeans and leggings. I would get cropped jeans if I was leggy or the cutoff is short enough to not shrink my legs. Pair it with some high high heels to get legs that go on forever. Now leggings. Tricky pair! I love that they are always a comfortable alternative to pants. I would strongly suggest wearing leggings with a tunic or a long top. Sometimes they hug in all the wrong places.
