With Jean Straps, wearing boots is smooth sailing



You probably haven't heard the word stirrups since the 1980s or your last visit to the gynecologist. But they're back in the fashion lexicon.Jeanstraps

The other day, I got an e-mail about a new product called Jean Straps. They're removable stirrups that hold your jeans in place while you put boots on and "keep jeans taut, minimizing bunching," the e-mail reads. They're available here for $9.99 a pair.

At first glace, I scoffed. I mean, just look at the picture. Then there's the embarrassment of revealing the elastic bands when you take off your boots.

But then I remembered last week when I tried stuffing my skinny jeans into a pair of fall boots. I pulled. I tugged. And still, there remained a lump of bunched-up denim around my ankle.

Divas, what's the bigger fashion tragedy -- straps around your feet or lumpy jeans under your boots?
