Great shoes to pair with your skinny jeans
So you just found the perfect pair of skinny jeans — the ideal combination of hip and age-appropriate. Plus, they hug your body in just the right way. Now you have to find the perfect shoes! Skinny jeans look great, but popping on a pair of $2 rubber flip flops to go along with them just looks drab. These types of shoes will help your bum and legs look great in your new favorite pair of jeans!
A classic pump will look good with pretty much any ensemble, and skinny jeans are no different. Whether you choose a pretty pair of peep toes for spring or closed, pointed toe power pumps for winter, pumps offer a hint of sex appeal. If you work in a casual office, you can pair your skinny jeans with black pumps, a white T-shirt and a blazer for an everyday casual-yet-sophisticated look. Add in the accessories of your choice, and you’re in business!
So maybe you’re not the heel type, but you still want to rock some skinnies. No problem! Find the right pair of flats, and you’re looking good. It’s best to look for a flat with the slightest amount of lift to even out the lines of your body in your skinny jeans. Totally flat flats make the skinny jeans look a bit juvenile, but adding a half-inch lift gives you the sleek, feminine lines of a well-dressed woman.
The perfect comfy heel alternative, wedges are like the skinny jeans of shoes. They offer a sleek look, but they also have much more support than traditional heels. That means you won’t be tripping all over yourself when you’re just trying to look cute. Nab a pair of red suede wedges with your dark wash skinny jeans like Jag Jeans Malia Slim in black (Jag Jeans, $64), and you have an instant nautical-inspired look. Plus, these jeans have a elastic waistband which moves with the contours of your body — no more restrictive denim!
Hey, who doesn’t want to look like Lara Croft every once in a while. Embrace your inner butt kicker with combat boots paired with skinny jeans. You’ll have no problem tucking your jeans into the boots, so you can don a pair of knee- or ankle-high combat boots without worry of denim flow over.
