Baggy Knees?

Any tips for tucking jeans into boots so that they don't end up bagging around my knees. Other people seem to be able to do it! Please tell me what the secret is before I start accosting strangers on the street.

Are you wearing skinny jeans or just normal ones?

I find tucking my skinnies into a pair of socks tends to help. Not very glam but sure, what the eye can't see.

Problem solved

Just wrap the jeans round your ankle and put your boots on surely ?

Blath - you can buy jodphur clips for 1.50 at the country store which would do exactly the same..

Ingenious! Thanks very much. Will definitely try some clips.

I like the crinkle knee look.
It looks relaxed, dare I say younger more 'cavalier'.

Also like the mid calf boot for that very reason.

It's a lot better than the skin tight, ironed jeans look, or god forbid the awful eighties ski pant thing when people looked as if they had lost their knee joints all toghther.

So. Not about actual baggy knees then? And elbows? I could do with a thread about that.
