Perfect jeans...now which shoes?

Hello fashionistas. For my post today, I thought it might be helpful to give some advice on which shoes go with each style of jean - I myself used to find it tricky.
SKINNY JEANS



It seems most of us are not quite ready to give up on the skinny jean yet. It's the go-to item of clothing for those 'I have nothing to wear' situations. You can never go wrong with Skinny jeans and a cute top. The best shoes to wear with skinny jeans are ballet flats or thin-heeled/stiletto pumps.

Christian Louboutin Alti Leather Pumps


Faith Red Patent Heels

Tory Burch Reva Patent Flats


BOOT-CUT JEANS


Personally, I find boot-cut jeans the hardest to wear. They are best suited to cowboy boots or knee-high boots which is fine if you are in live where the sun don't shine (lol!). The wider leg will allow the shaft of the jeans to hang comfortably over the boots. However, these jeans are not very good for those who prefer tucking jeans into boots (skinnies are perfect for that) because the excess material will keep spilling over the boots.

My advise for fashionistas in warmer climates would be to try strappy sandals.

WIDE-LEGGED or FLARED JEANS


These jeans are a throwback to the 70s and always make a reappearance. So if you are skeptical about making the investment, don't worry! The appropriate shoes for this type of jean are platform heels or wedges. I know some people suggest cute flats but it can be a little tricky to pull off and usually results in a frumpy look.

When choosing this style of jean, you should make sure that they are not too long or short - go for something that falls an inch to the ground. Also, I find that the slightly high waisted versions are more flattering. Keep the top either fitted or short and slightly loose paired with a platform peep-toe for some va va voom or wedges paired with big sunglasses and stacked bangles to keep the overall look funky.

STRAIGHT - LEGGED JEANS

Thick heeled- court shoes generally look good with straight cut jeans. Depending on the length (if they are ankle swingers), flat pumps are also acceptable. I think they look a little weird with boots.

I am totally over skinny jeans, but it can wear well and not too hipster if worn right. Lately, I've been channeling baggy jeans and just ditching jeans for skirts. YAY!

And, I'm growing my hair out. When I got my hair cut, my dresser didn't cut any of the length. :)

Cute blog!!

Hello! Its been a while, miss your commenst on my blog. Whenever you're not on starcomms make up for lost time!

I have a few staples and I find in colder places I wear skinnies (Blank) with boots but in warmer climes its (Paige) bootlegs with wedges or straight legs with heels. I wasn't a fan of flares until I got my first J Brand Love Story and wawawewa, those be some sexy jeans! Anyway I've written about jeans so much i know you know who i champion...
