Choosing the best shoes to wear with skinny jeans
June 23, 2014
Skinny jeans are one of the major trends in 2014, but just hearing the term "skinny jeans" is enough to send many women into hiding. The conception that wearing them is going to call attention to every bodily flaw is hard to lose.
Be that as it may, with the popularity of pencil, cigarette, and other skinny jeans seeming to rise and fall every few years or so, women are regularly forced to decide whether or not to wear them, and if they do, what shoes to wear with them. Choosing the right top to complement skinny jeans is a challenge in itself, but an outfit will be ruined if the wrong choice of accompanying shoe is made.
For women with long legs and narrow hips, ballet flats and skimmers are ideal for wearing with skinny jeans. As they're not at all bulky, they won't stand out or attract too much attention to your feet, with the added bonus that they will also help continue the lean silhouette created by the jeans.
Skinny jeans could almost have been designed for tucking into boots, and there are very few boot styles that don't work with them. Tall, wider boots with lower heels are the easiest to pull off because they will actually make a woman’s legs look thinner, but ankle boots and heeled boots can also work well. The key to choosing the right boots is to avoid a pair that is both short and bulky. Since skinny jeans are so form-fitting, they can be easily overwhelmed, and a pair of boots that are too hefty will call too much attention to the feet, and not enough to the entire outfit.
Booties, often known as ‘shooties, are another good choice for wearing with skinny jeans. The easiest way to pull off this look is to remember that it's a balancing act: if the booties have platform soles or chunky heels, you need a bit of volume on top as well. If you are seeking a slim head-to-toe look, a pair of more refined booties with less bulk is the best choice.
Wearing high heels with skinny jeans helps to elongate the legs, so it's natural that shorter women, and those with a few curves, would be attracted to the combination. However, wearing skinny jeans with stilettos also creates a very narrow "base," which means the middle of the body is going to look bigger by comparison.
With so many options of which shoes to wear with skinny jeans, perhaps the best advice is to spend time experimenting with different types of shoes for different occasions until you find the perfect look for your skinny jeans summer.
