First attempt at tucking knee high boots in jeans

Hi lovely ladies!
I have a pair of Etienne Aignier knee high riding boots that I purchased a couple of months ago. I haven't found any skirts or skinnies that I like on me yet but I really wanted to wear them with a pair of pants tucked in. I teamed them with:
Gray turtleneck
Gray faux leather moto jacket
Black straight leg jeans
black and gray jersey striped scarf

My question is, do they bunch too much at the knee with this jean? Opinions on the overall look?

    Meredith, you look GREAT!

  • ManidipaM replied 8 years ago

    Nope, just enough bunching to go with the equestrian boots! I love it! I love your legs in it!

  • Jjsloane replied 8 years ago

    I think you look amazing. If they end up bunching too much as you move around you might try those boot strap things to keep the pants more taught. Like mitten clips, but go on pant hem under foot like a stirrup. I also have some velcro leg wraps, but they don't work as well.

    Superb all the way! You will get addicted to tucking into boots!

    WOW WOW WOW!!! A-double-plus!!

  • Vicki replied 8 years ago

    They work great with your knee-high boots and your jeans look sleek to me. It's a nice look on you and I can see you working this again and again.

  • keruchina replied 8 years ago

    Wow! You look fantastic.

  • MsLuna replied 8 years ago

    @Meredith you look amazing! I love it! Keep doing this look - it works very well on you! It took me a long time to adopt to the boots over pants look too (It's not within many people's comfort zones) but after a while you'll realize how practical it is (especially when you live in a snowy area!).

    Fabulous! I'd wear this from head to toe.

  • Sarah A replied 8 years ago

    looks great, FWIW i have a pair of pants that seem to ride up in the boots through the day sitting and standing and then poof out a bit, i have found safety pinning them tightly below my calves and again at the ankles before putting on my boots helps them stay put and not develop excessive poof.

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    Yeah! Very strong and chic. In my opinion a little fabric at the knees is better than the "sausage knees" that can come with the wrong pair of skinnies. So....did people notice your new style today?

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    I am overwhelmed with your approval! Thanks so much for helping to encourage me to try the pants tucked into boots!
    Your approval makes me very, very happy!

    I am definitely on the lookout for jeggings.
    I have stirrup metal clips attached and they help but I was worried about the them still not being taut enough around the knees but it sounds like they are acceptable till I get a slimmer cut leg on pants.
    Sarah A,
    Good thought about the safety pin. Maybe that could prevent "poof"

    Meredith, you look so awesome in your boots and tucked jeans! SUPER!!!! You have to wear your jeans tucked more often!

  • rachylou replied 8 years ago

    A success!

  • nancylee replied 8 years ago

    Yay! You did it. And you look fabulous and modern, Meredith. I confess I only started sporting this look last fall, but once I did it became an easy go-to look.

    To minimize bunching I usually tuck my skinnies into some heavy socks before putting on my boots. The socks provide an anchoring effect, although it seems a little bunching in inevitable unless you wear jeggings or leggings.

    You look wonderful from head to toe.

  • shevia replied 8 years ago

    Super fab! I love that jacket on you!

  • citygirldc replied 8 years ago

    This is a very chic silhouette on you Meredith! High five! :)

  • Kristine replied 8 years ago

    Super chic and modern! You look great!!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    People didn't comment specifically about the jeans tucked into the boots but they DID say I looked very nice!
    Debora, Racheylou, Nancylee, San, Shevia, CitygirlDC, ClearlyClaire, Kristine,
    Thanks so much for helping encourage me to try this new look. I will try the socks and I think I'm going to keep trying to find some nice jeggings as well! I also want to try to find some skirts to team with the boots!

  • velvetychocolate replied 8 years ago

    You look amazing Meredith - wow! Just love this whole outfit on you. Very modern, sleek and still classic at the same time.

    I'm smiling here, because you look so fabulous in this outfit. For a 'first attempt' you've knocked it out of the park, so to speak. :)

  • Freckles replied 8 years ago

    Well done Meredith!

  • fashionista replied 8 years ago

    WOW lady you rocked the knee high boot with class!!!

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    VelvetyChocolate, Modern, sleek, classic....I like it! Maybe I should make that part of my mantra when I shop. Thank you!
    Freckles and Fashionista,
    Thank you so much for your kind words and for liking my first attempt at jean tucking. I checked out the video reviews on Zappos for 17" height shaft boots and these are the ones I picked. Now I need some more tuckable pants and a few skirts or dresses to wear them with.

  • Zapotee replied 8 years ago

    Welcome to the dark side:)
    It was a very sucessful attempt. I don't think the jeans bunch too much at the knee.

  • Meredith1953 replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Zap!

  • krishnidoux replied 8 years ago

    Looks really good. What a nice scarf, I'm jealous!
