Pairing the right boots with the right denim makes a gal feel unstoppable.
The trick is finding ones that complement each other, and you. Whether you’re personal style is rugged, urban or feminine, a great pair of boots to wear with jeans are a timeless closet staple.
If your wardrobe needs a re-boot, check out this top 10.
Luxuriously warm, classic UGGs are a winter go-to for those of us who want to look good while avoiding patches of sidewalk ice. Wear these on the outside with tight jeans so they don’t bunch at the knees, which can look sloppy.
9. The Shootie
Part shoe and part bootie, the sexy shootie is one of the more versatile boots to wear with jeans. The low ankle cut is a perfect choice for straight legged pants that fall right above the ankle. If the hem is too short, cuff them. This style adds a modern edge so wear it with something daring and complete the look with a leather jacket.
Modern combats aren’t only for Goths and punk rock grrrls. The structure and support is ideal for an everyday casual shoe, particularly for woman who chooses denim more often than not. Never tuck pants inside them. Do wear with a classic straight leg.
7. Tall and Fit
Nothing keeps your legs warm in winter like a pair of tall shaft footwear. Wear them under your favorite pair of jeans from strait cuts to flairs. Almost anything goes when wearing them under denim, with the exceptions of skinnies and hems that fall short of the ankles. Th chic pair with nailhead trim pictured above leaves plenty of room for embellishment on the rest of the outfit.
6. High Heels
Replace pumps with a chic pair of high-heeled boots to wear with jeans. This adds a ladylike look to wearing wide-legged jeans. Try it with fitted denim to accentuate curves in winter and fall. Pair it with a soft feminine blouse or crisp collared button-down.
5. Chunky Wedge Heels
Chunky heels add balance to maxi skirts and attitude to your favorite pair of worn denim pants. Wear these under the pants as long as the pants aren’t too tight around the boot. Accessorize with a wide belt or floppy straw hat to complete this easy look.
4. Stretch-Fit Flats
Stretch-fit flats offer the best of both worlds – style and comfort. The height makes legs look slender and the adjustable fit feels like a glove. Lightweight material like faux suede (pictured above) makes it easy to get around all day long. Try these under boot-cuts or straight legs that have embellishment on the pockets or seams.
3. Year-Round Softies
These softie perfs are so light and cool you can when them all year. The small floral cutouts provide ventilation when worn with thin ankle socks in summer. The 2-inch heels elongate legs while the soft suede adds an ultra feminine touch. Match these with black or dark denim tucked in, out or cuffed, depending on what’s comfortable.
2. Slouchy Leather
Slouchy leather boots have a distinctive bohemian vibe to them. They’re versatile enough to wear with skinny or boot cut denim. You could also wear them with jeggings and a long tunic or knit top. Since the slouch style adds volume, always wear them with fitted bottoms for balance.
In a perfect world, cowboy boots would be sold with every pair of slim fit jeans. The structure and straight cut make them easy to slide over pants without having to scrunch them in. To wear the pants over top, choose a slightly looser fit. Any body type can pull this look off!
