The Best Shoes to Wear with Any Pair of Jeans
11 foolproof combinations
Everyone’s got a pair of jeans…or at least 15, if we’re being honest. But with a few new styles on the market (namely, the resurgence of flared denim), sometimes it can be difficult to find the right shoe to wear with each. Let us break it down for you.
Flared Denim + Stacked Heels
Flared jeans need a little height to work their leg-lengthening magic, but to look modern, steer clear of stilettos. The solution? A stacked heel. Whether it's a closed-toe clog or a classic bootie, as long as the heel is thick, you?re ready for winter '15.
Boyfriend Jeans + Sporty Sneakers
A casual silhouette like boyfriend jeans should be styled with an equally casual shoe. We?re drawn to something on the structured side, like a pair of Adidas Stan Smiths (rather than floppy trainers). But the important thing to see: a hint of your ankle. Otherwise, the look turns frumpy.
Boyfriend Jeans + Strappy Heels
The other alternative is the other extreme: a dressy sandal. Again, make sure the jean ankles are cuffed and the shoes are statement-worthy.
White Jeans + Statement Pumps
White in winter (or even just autumn) is already pushing it. Yes, you can do it...but if you're making an entrance, don't ruin it with sneakers. Go fancy with your most fun pump.
