Xmas night out tomorrow! Big diet fail ! Soo my skinny jeans are too tight ! In between sizes so if I buy new they will be a bit to big! I have bootcut next ones that are comfy fit but not sure if they would look dated ! Any opinions welcomed thanks ( I'm 50 .. 5.10 and size 12 jeans heading more to 14 ( hence next 12 fit and top shop / river island are a squeeze ! Shoes are red 5 inch heels

My advice really is go in what you feel comfortable in. You don't want your night ruined because you're feeling self conscious all night.
Although my honest opinion is that bootcut jeans are dated and you'd be better wearing the skinny for a bit beforehand to loosen them a bit before wearing them on your night out. You can always wear with a floaty top to disguise any muffin top if they are still a bit tight.

I think it depends how long the jeans are. If they are just below ankle, they'd be too short for such high heels. If they come down over your feel to an inch or two abov the floor, I think they'd be fine.

I'm sorry. Awful.

Would some emergency suck you in pants mean that the skinny jeans will fit better?

Thanks , yes I agree really ! Just wanted it confirmed smile guess it's a loose top and hair bobble on the button trick ;)

They are long but I know it's a bad idea ! Il stick to skinnies and wear loose top with the button expanded on a hair bobble !

You could try a little boho seventies retro chic though. Maybe with wedges smile
Most definetly not with stilettos or boots. Very dated. I think the boho look is ok though. I wear bootcut jeans with converse style trainers. I love that look.

everyone says ' oh they are coming back in' NO THEY ARE NOT

I think jeans that fit properly look better every. single. time.
No matter what the style.
I wouldn't wear them with the heels though.

If they're long they will look ok but if you're wearing heels they have to be so long that if you were in flats they would be on the floor. Any shorter and definitely not.

Lots of people look crap in skinny jeans and more balanced in bootlegs. I've got some quite flarey Levi's from EBay, a style number they don't make any more (with bugger all give in the fabric, must predate Lycra) and the only time I get compliments is when I wear them.

Short bootlegs with ankle boots is the worst look ever, that is a massive no-no.

Actually, I think you should go for it assuming they're long enough. Skinnies are old news.

Itsalldramarama Fri 16-Dec-16 23:06:37

Il try them tomorrow and post pics !!! You can give a verdict ;)) not hopeful mind ;)

Buy new jeans tomorrow morning. M&S relaxed skinny or something like that. We are saving you from yourself, fashion wise.

Also, what has poor old Cindy Crawford done to her face??

Let's see the photo. It's all in the execution/detail.

Blacksox Sat 17-Dec-16 02:56:16

No! Horrendous.

CallarMorvern Sat 17-Dec-16 07:54:40

Of course it's fine. Mumsnet has this weird uniform sometimes.

VeryPunny Sat 17-Dec-16 07:58:49

Skinny jeans do most people no favours. What did you go for?

Itsalldramarama Sat 17-Dec-16 08:01:58

Just going to dig out my jeans and see what I've got ( when I get up and shake of the head ache I have from slightly overdosing on gin last night !) if no good il have to go shopping ....

Bagina Sat 17-Dec-16 08:05:44

Get them on now and start stretching them! Those corset things make the difference of a size.

HubbleBubbles Sat 17-Dec-16 08:18:29

I honestly think Cindy looks dated in that pic - it's the boot cut with the heels which does it.
If you were going for a hippy/boho look the jeans would have to come down over your feet with trainers or chunky wedges - but I don't think this is the look the OP will be going for at her xmas do!

Itsalldramarama Sat 17-Dec-16 08:19:52

Boot cut look absolutely shit as expected!! Not as long as I thought !! Bloody shoes 👠! Haven't wore heels for a while so think I might actually kill myself if I attempt to walk out side !! Back to plan b with bobble on button trick ! .... mmmm wonder if I can wear my trust DMs ;) heels are definitely out .. bad enough with a headache now , never mind alcohol later .....
