When it comes to bootcut jeans, you want to look for tops that complement them.
Bootcuts are known for their flattering fit and classic style. But if you’re not careful, your bootcut jeans can look dated or frumpy when paired with the wrong top—and no one wants that!
In this guide, we’ll teach you how to choose tops that will take your outfit from drab to fab in a jiffy.
Scroll down for our list of 27 of the most flattering tops to wear with bootcuts this year:
Spring tops to wear with bootcut jeans
1. A camel top
Camel is a versatile color that looks great on every skin tone.
This top is a great layering piece for fall and winter, and it’s also an all-season staple—you can wear it with bootcut jeans or with your favorite denim skirt, too.
The camel top is a warm neutral that will match many different colors of boots and jeans, so you don’t have to worry about matching anything else!
2. A floral blouse
Floral blouses are a great way to add a pop of color and pattern to your outfit.
They’re also great for spring and summer, so if you have some floral-print pieces in your closet—or want one—this is the time to wear them!
Floral blouses can be worn with jeans or pants. You can wear them with boots or heels too, depending on which season you’re dressing for.
3. Fitted flannel
Flannel is a type of fabric that’s been popular for over two centuries. It’s warm, soft and often used in shirts and jackets.
Flannel is most commonly made from cotton or wool, but it can also be made from other natural materials like silk and hemp.
The best flannels are thick enough to keep you warm in the early spring without feeling too heavy or cumbersome when you wear them.
If you want a slimmer look, consider choosing a lightweight version instead of one made from thick woolen cloths like flannel shirts tend to be.
4. V-neck sweater
You can’t go wrong with a v-neck sweater.
It’s a classic piece of clothing that will always look good and work with many different types of bottoms, which makes it an ideal top to wear with bootcut jeans.
5. Pocketed cardigan
If you’re looking for a casual look that’s easy to wear, a cardigan is a great option.
Cardigans are versatile and can be worn over dresses, tops, or flowy tops.
Cardigans are also perfect for cooler weather since they provide warmth without adding bulk.
Cardigans come in all shapes, sizes, and colors so you have lots of options when choosing one!
If you’d like something that has pockets (like this one), then look no further than your local thrift store because they’re usually pretty cheap there!
6. Chiffon tunic
Chiffon is a lightweight fabric that gives you the ability to layer without adding extra bulk.
It’s also great for adding color and texture to your outfit, so it makes sense that chiffon tops have become one of the most popular clothing items in recent years.
Chiffon tops are versatile enough to be dressed up or down depending on how you style them, making them perfect for any occasion!
Summer tops to wear with bootcut jeans
7. Tank tops and t-shirts
Tank tops and t-shirts are a great option for pairing with bootcut jeans.
These pieces of clothing can be layered over each other to create a trendy look that you can wear to work or play.
For example, if you want to wear your jeans with a tank top and a blazer, try pairing them with black boots or loafers.
For an office setting, consider wearing black tights and oxfords when dressing up your outfit.
If you’re planning on attending an event that doesn’t require business attire, try wearing this combination with sneakers instead of oxfords.
8. Off-the-shoulder tops
Off-the-shoulder tops are a great way to show off your shoulders and neckline, as well as any jewelry or tattoos.
Even if you don’t have much going on in the way of bling or ink, off-the-shoulder tops can still be an interesting silhouette for you.
The top is designed so that it’s tight around the bust and then falls away from the shoulder down toward your arms, which means that even if you don’t have much going on there (like me), it’s still pretty flattering!
The beauty of this trend is that all kinds of different people can wear it—from skinny gals to plus sizes gals!
And while they’re not exactly cheap (some run into hundreds), they’re worth every penny when paired with a good pair of bootcut jeans.
9. Ruffled tops
If you’re looking for something to wear with a pair of bootcut jeans and want to add a feminine touch, then ruffled tops are the perfect choice.
Ruffles can be paired with jeans or skirts/dresses, and they work well as an accent piece or statement piece depending on the rest of your outfit.
A good way to make sure that your top doesn’t look too plain is by wearing it with a belt (and if you’re feeling confident about the look, try layering different belts over each other).
This gives the outfit some definition without making it too busy—it also helps camouflage any problem areas like bulky tummies or hips!
10. Peasant tops
Peasant tops are a great choice for layering. They look casual and comfortable but can also be worn with jeans or leggings.
If you want to wear a peasant top with your jeans, go for something that has long sleeves because it will balance out the silhouette of your outfit (if you don’t have long arms).
A good way to wear this type of top is with high-waisted jeans or overalls that create an hourglass shape.
Peasant hangs are light and thin so they’re perfect for spring and summer weather!
11. Cropped tees
Cropped tees are the perfect top to pair with bootcut jeans.
You can wear them with jeans or shorts, sneakers, or heels (see examples below).
The sleeves are a bit shorter than regular tees so they won’t show over your jacket or sweater.
A cropped tee is short enough that it won’t show over your jacket/sweater.
12. A tunic top
A tunic top is a great way to show off your figure, and it’s also very comfortable.
You can wear a tunic top with jeans, shorts or leggings.
There are different types of tunic tops: long-sleeved and short-sleeved tops.
If you want to look like you’ve just stepped out of a Parisian boutique then choose a long-sleeved tunic shirt; if you’re going for an all-American look then go for the short-sleeved variety.
Tunic tops look great with bootcut jeans because they make your legs appear longer than they really are!
13. Button-down shirt
The button-down shirt is one of the most versatile pieces in your closet and can be worn with bootcut jeans just as easily as it can be paired with a pair of chinos.
It’s easy to throw on and go, so it’s perfect for casual occasions and work alike.
Button-down shirts are more formal than tees, but they have a relaxed vibe that makes them feel more laid-back than a buttoned-up dress shirt would be.
Button-down shirts also come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and prints—so you can find one that suits your style!
Autumn tops to wear with bootcut jeans
14. A relaxed crewneck sweater
A relaxed crewneck sweater can be worn for almost any occasion, from work to a casual weekend outing.
It’s part of the latest trend in men’s fashion: the chunky knit sweater, which is popular with guys who want to look stylish but don’t want to break the bank.
But what exactly is a relaxed crewneck sweater? And how should you wear it? Read on to find out!
15. An oversized denim jacket
A denim jacket is a perfect top to pair with bootcut jeans.
You can go for something with a hood, like this one from J Crew. It’s chic and casual at the same time—not to mention that it looks great when paired with boots!
Another option is a denim jacket with fringe on the sleeves, like this one from Levi’s. It’s casual and edgy, which makes it perfect for pairing with bootcut jeans!
16. A belted cardigan
A belted cardigan is one of the most versatile tops you can wear with bootcut jeans.
It’s been around for decades, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
This style is also known as a cardi jacket or cami jacket, depending on where you live or shop.
The name comes from the fact that they button up like a cardigan and have sleeves like a jacket—hence the name “cardi” (short for “cardigan”).
These cute tops are usually made out of cotton or wool, with ribbing along the hemline and cuffs at the bottom edge of each sleeve.
They always have buttons down both sides of front placket opening; however, some versions will button all three down while others will be buttoned only at top two buttons so that there’s enough room to pull them over your head but still cover up your chest area when worn under sweaters during colder months–a feature called “underarm venting” (or “underarm gusset”).
17. A split-hem sweater
A split-hem sweater is a perfect top to wear with bootcut jeans.
It adds a feminine touch to the outfit, and can be worn with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings.
It can also be worn with flats for more casual occasions, or heels for an evening out on the town!
18. A boyfriend blazer
A boyfriend blazer is a great way to look chic and sophisticated, and is the perfect way to dress up a simple outfit.
It can be worn over a t-shirt or tank top, with jeans or pants—and it’s an easy way to look put together without spending too much time getting ready in the morning.
A boyfriend blazer is also very versatile: it can be worn on its own with jeans or slacks, or layered under a coat as part of your winter wardrobe.
19. Patterned turtleneck
If you’re looking for a way to add some color or pattern to your outfit, a turtleneck is a great option.
Turtlenecks look great when layered over shirts with 3/4-length sleeve lengths and can be worn with cardigans or sweaters as well.
If you love layering, but hate how bulky it can make your outfit feel, try wearing two long sleeve tops at once: one shirt under another (or under two) will give you the extra warmth without adding bulk!
20. Denim blouse
Paired with a classic denim shirt and bootcut jeans, this look is a classic.
The key to pulling off this outfit is finding the right pair of jeans. You want them to be tight enough that they show every curve, but not so tight that they’re uncomfortable.
You also need to make sure they aren’t too long—you don’t want them dragging on the floor or bunching up around your ankles!
If you love your denim blouse but aren’t sure what else to wear with it, here are some ideas:
* A white tank top.
* A black t-shirt.
* A button-down oversize shirt (keep in mind the buttons should be big enough for you).
* An oversized cardigan sweater (make sure it’s long enough).
Winter tops to wear with bootcut jeans
21. Chunky sweaters
If you’re looking for a sweater that will work with your bootcuts, look for one with a deep V or boatneck.
These styles will help to balance out the length of the top and bottom pieces of your outfit.
Long sleeves are also important to consider when buying sweaters, as they can make it easier for you to layer multiple shirts without having them bunch up or feel too bulky in certain areas.
A wide collar is also a must-have feature on any sweater that you purchase with bootcut jeans in mind.
Wide collars are perfect because they provide extra coverage while still being flattering and feminine.
Finally, we recommend finding something with a slightly longer length than other tops—this will ensure that it doesn’t become too short when worn underneath another layer like a jacket or vest!
22. Long cardigan
Cardigans are a great way to add warmth to your outfit, and they can be layered over any type of top.
Cardigans are especially useful for the fall and winter months because they give you the option of adding extra layers when you need them.
In addition, cardigans are a great way to add length or bulk to an outfit that might otherwise look too skimpy or thin without them.
You could even wear a long cardigan over an oversized tank top or tee on days when it’s just too warm for jeans but still cool enough that you don’t want to wear shorts yet!
23. Fitted sweater
Sweaters are an often overlooked option for tops to wear with bootcut jeans.
This is unfortunate because they’re so easy to style and can be used in a wide range of outfits.
You should make sure that your sweater is fitted, but not tight or clingy.
The length of the sweater should also be long enough to cover your hips—you don’t want anyone wondering why you’re wearing something that looks like a child’s top!
If you plan on wearing bootcut jeans with a fitted sweater, don’t go overboard with the sleeves—the goal here isn’t to look like a boy!
24. A long, slim coat
A long, slim coat is a great way to wear bootcut jeans for those who want to add some length to their frame.
This look is especially popular in the winter months when you need an extra layer of warmth.
Long coats are also perfect for making a statement and adding more interest to your outfit—especially if you have short legs!
25. An open-front coat
An open-front coat is a piece of outerwear that has no buttons or zippers and can be simply folded down for a more casual look.
The best part about this style is that it allows you to wear your favorite shirt without worrying about whether it will go with your top, since the two pieces are separate.
It also means that if you want to switch up how you wear the outfit, all you have to do is put on a different blouse beneath your open-front coat!
The easiest way to style an open-front coat is by pairing it with oversized jeans or wide-leg pants like flares and culottes (we love these ones).
This gives off a very laidback vibe while still keeping things professional enough for work environments.
For example: If you’re wearing a white button-down shirt, try pairing it with a pair of black pants or shorts.
You can also wear an open-front coat with a printed top, like this striped number.
26. A moto jacket
A moto jacket is a military-inspired jacket with zippers, buckles and epaulettes.
It’s usually cropped at the waist, and can be worn with jeans or dresses.
You can also wear it over a turtleneck or blouse for a more conservative look.
For those who want to avoid looking too casual or overdressed, we recommend pairing your boots with black skinny jeans and an oversized turtleneck sweater in different shades of gray (think charcoal, light heather gray).
The best part about this outfit? The zippered pockets!
27. Oversized tunic sweater
If you’re looking for a top that can be worn with jeans and bootcut pants alike, this is a great option.
The tunic shape makes it easy to layer over leggings or skinny jeans.
You can also wear this top with leggings plus a long necklace and a chunky scarf, making it ideal for chilly autumn days or winter evenings.
If you want to go for an all-out fall look, try pairing this piece with your favorite lightweight jacket—and don’t forget to accessorize!
A statement necklace will bring out the best in both pieces.
And there you have it! These are just some of the great tops to wear with bootcut jeans.
