Everyone knows that slim jeans are all the rage in fashion right now, on trend when they are in pairs with everything from preppy striped tees and schoolboy blouses to belt tunic and floating tops. But how do you know what style of shoes to wear with your beloved skins?
In fact, skinny jeans require careful handling. Pair them with the wrong shoe and your silhouette will be off – in proportion to and flattering. Here are some ideas to show off your skins beautifully, with just the right shoe.
Wear ankle shoes
The ankle boots are back, and you’ll find them everywhere in as many styles and colors as you can imagine. Whether you like cowboy-inspired boots, laces or slouchy suede, you will make sure you find an ankle that suits your style. Ankle boots look fantastic with slim jeans; their shortened shape perfectly expands narrow legs, lengthens your legs by showing more of them. In addition, they are fun, funky and the right trend.
Choose classic high boots
Knee-high boots are the iconic foil for slim jeans. Put your skinny in high boots and you are instantly stylish, elegant and polished. Classic riding boots are especially flattering with skinny jeans, so try an always fashionable flat heeled rider style to get out of preppy-cool style and take a look. But when it’s time to dress up a bit more, wearing high boots paired with skinny – especially skinnies in a super dark or black wash – makes you look glamorous and ready for a night out.
Try a flirty apartment
Ballet apartments have been popular for a while now, and their stay has not diminished. Although ballets look cute with other pants styles, they are especially adorable with skinny jeans. A cropped or duck grazing skinny jean with a classic ballet apartment is the perfect flirt, Audrey Hepburn-inspired look – and the apartments are practical and comfortable to boot. If your daily life involves a lot of running around, chasing kids or rushing from meeting to meeting, a ballet apartment is perfect. As an added bonus, you can find ballets in lots of styles and variations, from casual to elegant. For a more relaxed look, try fun printed cloths, denim or classic solid leather ballets. For a dressier or angular look, choose apartments that are adorned with jewels, flowers, ruffles or buckles, or go for a two-toned, cap-toed apartment or one in a pet print.
Styling skinny jeans are fun, and with the perfect shoe styles out there to frame and complement them, they are flattering and elegant. Have fun experimenting with boots and flats to find your perfect look!
