style session: how to style ankle boots with jeans!
Today I am answering a super popular reader question about jeans and ankle boots! Everyone LOVES ankle boots for fall and winter and when they first reached popularity the jean du jour was skinny jeans… but fast forward to today and the jean styles are all over the place! There is a lot of unchartered territory with jeans and ankle boots these days. I’ve been getting so many questions about what jeans you can wear with ankle boots now that there are SO many styles. From skinny to straight leg to slim leg – what works??
I tried on my new suede ankle boots with some of my most favorite jeans recently to do some hardcore research into what jeans work with ankle boots this fall. I myself wasn’t even sure how this little experiment would work – it’s all new territory for me too! So here are my unofficial/official research results. I tried ankle boots with 5 of my most favorite pairs of jeans and are you ready for it!?!? The results are in: there is NO WRONG WAY to wear ankle boots with jeans this fall. I think ALL styles and silhouettes work. Truly!
I will say some jean and ankle boot combos were more to my liking, but none of them looked ‘bad’ really. I liked them all! A few pairs got a tiny cuff at the bottom so they didn’t rub on the boot, but some pairs I just let fall on the boot too. So really… my advice: try lots of looks to get a feel for what you like, but in the end… there are no rules to what works and what doesn’t!
Here are 5 pairs of jeans I would wear with these ankle boots… I’m 5’4 for reference.
