I admit that I recently bought a pair of J.Brand bootcuts to wear over a pair of high Louboutin boots. I tried them on for my sister, who gasped and said, "What is this 1998?"! Back to Saks they went. I even tried the whole "boyfriend" jean thing -- and just felt sloppy. Sticking with my skinnies.
But maybe now is the time to go to the other extreme -- super wide-leg denim. There is something chic for spring about the flared jean -- seventies jet-set. They actually can be quite flattering, if worn right. Heel height is important -- unless you are supermodel tall, the higher the better when it comes to footwear. And I love a platform with wide-legs. I'm into the high-waisted style, too, with a blouse tucked in or even a basic tank or tee.

So, I'll give wide a try this spring -- but I am not giving up my skinnies!
