The popular-denim pendulum swung from skinny to impossibly large (with an alternate route through low-rise-ville), leaving little room for the return of perhaps the most divisive jeans of all: bootcut. Of course, for those not held captive by the trends, the court of public opinion holds little power.

In New York this week, while filming season three of “The Morning Show,” Jennifer Aniston proudly wore the pants that TikTok might venture to call “cheugy.” But being Jennifer Aniston and all, she wore them with such confidence that the potential for criticism simply rolled off.

Her exact pair, the Valentina in Woodside by Favorite Daughter, were a savvy match for her cropped blazer (a Julia Roberts-approved fall staple) and black turtleneck. The deep blue wash of the denim made a great complement to sophisticated, dark-toned neutrals.

But there’s something bigger going on here. The cut of the jeans weren’t just flattering on Aniston; they held a certain power not found in other denim silhouettes these days. Bootcut jeans seem to be the premiere choice for seasoned celebrities who’ve deftly circumvented fashion victimhood through decades of trend cycles. Jennifer Lopez, Amal Clooney, and Olivia Wilde all regularly lean on the style for their effortless-yet-polished casual ‘fits.

While we’re having heated debates about two polar extremes and updating our denim drawers every two years, this style-icon class is laughing all the way to the Joe’s Jeans. Maybe — just maybe — it’s time to graduate from the game of big-or-skinny tug-of-war and cross over into the peaceful, rewarding land of bootcut jeans, where elegant A-list women roam and your legs look a million miles long.
