There are a few key things to keep in mind when you want to pair booties with jeans.
Let’s start off with what your outfit is comprised of. A shirt, sweater or blouse of some kind, jeans and booties. The items in the outfit are basics but the colors, the style of jeans and type of booties that make your outfit unique.
The chicest way you can wear booties with jeans is selecting a pair of skinny jeans that end at the ankle. You can also wear a pair of skinny jeans and cuff the jeans. You want to wear skinny cropped jeans because it shows off your booties, and it creates a sleeker look.
In my outfits with booties, I usually have about 2 or so inches of my ankle exposed. It helps add some dimensions and keep the look from looking bulky. Depending on the style of ankle boots you can get away with tucking in your skinny jeans into your boots. I wouldn’t do that with the style of ankle boots I’m wearing in this outfit but if your booties have a wider top with room to tuck your jeans in you can do that.
Avoid jeans that fit you too loose as the look can get sloppy. I can’t say that I like how ankle boots look with bootcut jeans, I’ve never worn my booties with bootcut jeans and I would suggest you to do the same. I wear my bootcut jeans with boots that end at mid-thigh.
Coordinate the color of your booties with your jeans. Brown boots look fantastic when paired with white or blue jeans. You could also pair them with olive green or burgundy trousers. If you are going to wear, trousers wear skinny ankle trousers avoid flared trousers.
Black boots look great with gray, black, blue, and charcoal jeans. They are black, so you have many more options.
Once you have your jeans and booties selected, find an appropriate shirt to complete the look. I like wear slightly loose shirts when wearing the booties with jeans combo. I don’t like the look of everything being too tight.
In this outfit, I went with a chambray blouse. The blue stands out against the white jeans and the colors look beautiful together. The booties I’m wearing are from Sole Society, they have many affordable and cute options.
