Tips on How To Wear Boots With Jeans
Boots are a timeless footwear staple that can be worn with a variety of different clothing items. One of the most popular ways to wear boots is with jeans.
Jeans are a versatile and comfortable option that can be dressed up or down, making them the perfect choice for wearing with boots.
Boots with jeans is a trend that has been around for awhile and it's not going anywhere. It's a great way to add some edge to your look without going too over the top. Here are a few tips on how to wear different boots with jeans:
1.Opt for dark wash jeans.
A darker wash will be more versatile and can be dressed up or down, while a lighter wash is perfect for a more casual look.
Biker boots and chunky for example, look better with darker wash of jeans bringing out a sleek effect.
2. Tuck in your jeans
Ankle boots work best with cropped jeans or jeggings. If you're wearing booties or taller boots, make sure your jeans are long enough to tuck into the boot for a more seamless look. Tucking your jeans also elongates your legs.
Add some accessories to finish off the look. A scarf, hat, or statement necklace can all take an outfit from plain to stylish in no time.
4.Cuff your jeans
In case you don’t have a pair of cropped jeans, and don’t want to go buying one, you can fold your jeans on top or inward to leave out some skin fold for a more casual look.
5. Pair with distressed jeans
Chelsea boots look so good with distressed straight leg jeans. Opt for the low heel ones for a more casual look
You can also cuff up the jeans a little to strut your boots.
6. Choose the right boot style.
If you're going for a more casual look, opt for a Chelsea boot or desert boot. If you want to dress things up a bit, try a riding boot or ankle boot.
7. Pay attention to the fit of your jeans.
Skinny jeans will give you the most streamlined look, but if you're looking for something a little more relaxed, go for a straight-leg or boyfriend-fit jean. And if you really want to make a statement, try pairing your boots with a wide-leg jean.
How to Pick The Right Jeans for Your Boots
The key to finding the right jeans to wear with your boots is in the fit.
You don't want your jeans to be too loose or too tight - you want them to hug your curves just enough so that they don't look baggy.
The next thing to consider is the style of your jeans. If you're wearing cowboy boots, for example, you'll want to avoid skinny jeans as they will bunch up at the ankle and look odd. Instead, opt for a straight-leg or wide-leg jean that will sit nicely over your boots.
And finally, pay attention to the hem of your jeans. If you're wearing tall boots, you'll want to make sure that your jeans are long enough so that they don't ride up and leave a gap between your skin and the fabric.
