Ok, so you’ve found the ones—the jeans that fit you like a glove. You’ve plotted the million-and-one ways you’ll style them…the only question is: What shoes do you wear with them?
Every denim style has its perfect mate in a specific pair of shoes. Scroll through our ultimate guide for every pair of jeans you own below!
Flares and Chunky Heels
Flares need heels to work their leg-lengthening magic, but it’s important to be comfortable too! The solution? A pair of chunky heels, like these styled by blogger Camille Charrière. Whether they are open-toe sandals or closed-toe mules, as long as the heel is thick, they’re just the thing your flares are missing.
Straight-Legs and Slip-On Sneakers
A casual silhouette like straight-leg jeans should be styled with an equally casual shoe. With their awesome range of materials, patterns, and colors, our casual shoes of choice are a pair of slip-on sneakers, like this red pair on blogger Danielle Bernstein.
White Jeans and Flat Sandals
For the summertime, pair your white jeans with neutral flat sandals, like blogger Bradley Agather. No matter the silhouette or denim style, it’s an elegant and easy look.
Overalls and Classic Pumps
Though overalls stem from a childhood trend, they look no less amazing on adults, like this slim pair on blogger Blair Eadie. Style them with a pair of classic pumps and you’ll feel dressed-up and festive, even if you’re only headed to meet your best friend for coffee.
Shorts and Ballet Flats
Sure, denim shorts go with everything from heels to sandals, but ballet flats are the clear winner. Case in point: these black flats on blogger Leandra Medine. They are chic yet comfortable.
Boyfriend Jeans and Leopard Flats
Boyfriend jeans and leopard flats are a match made in heaven. The casual, slouchy denim silhouette is complemented by the understated elegance of the leopard print.
Culottes and Statement Heels
Take a cue from blogger Wendy Gilmour and go for culottes (or gauchos) with a bold pair of heels. Don’t be shy with this trend—if you’re going to go there, then go there.
Ankle-Length Skinnies and Oxfords
We’ve already declared ankle-length skinnies as the most flattering denim style and one of the three jeans every woman must own, so there’s nothing not to love about this pair on blogger Hedvig Opshaug. The crop allows you to show off not only your slim ankles but also an chic pair of flats.
