When it comes to denim, it's the skinny, wide-leg, and even boyfriend cuts that have ruled women's wardrobes for the past several years. Bootcut? Stashed away with your high school yearbook. But if Levi's has anything to say about it, you'll be seeing them again next season, and you're going to like it. At yesterday's Levi's Fall 2012 collection preview, we asked Creative Director Len Peltier about his favorite denim look for women, and he was all about the boot:
I'm really into the skinny bootcut we're introducing. Boot usually starts higher and ends up chopping you in half. Ours is a really, really, really tapered super skinny, and it kicks out really low. It's super flattering and elongating. And super sexy.
Sexy bootcut, eh? We're intrigued. The brand is also going beyond denim next season, with a heritage-flavored collection for women. Check it out in the gallery after the jump.
