Ever since skinny jeans hit the fashion circuit, ladies have been trying out all sorts of shoes with them, attempting to find the style that looks the best. Sure, stilettos and flats look fabulous, but what do you wear when you're rocking a T-shirt and jeans look? Some gals reach for high-top sneakers. But should they?

Can You Pull it Off?

Should you try to wear high-top sneakers with your skinny jeans? The answer is a big, fat yes. A pair of high-top kicks looks totally rocker chic and edgy when paired with your cute skinny jeans. The sneakers give your look a vibe that flats and other shoes just can't pull off.

What to Wear With Your Skinny Jeans and Kicks

Skinny jeans and high-top sneakers look totally rockin' when paired with an edgy T-shirt. That old rock band shirt your ex left at your pad? Perfect -- as long as it's tight and not baggy. Toss a cute fitted jacket over top and you're good to go. Of course, a cute blouse also looks good and gives you a comfy casual vibe. A nice striped fitted top paired with a jean jacket looks stylish with your dark jeans and sneaks as well.

What Color to Rock

When it comes to choosing your shoe color, just about anything goes. White and black high tops create a classic feel to your edgy look and go with just about everything. If you want to spice it up a bit, go with a bright pink or purple shoe. The possibilities are endless and spotting a flash of color on your piggies is fun and cute.

How to Wear Them

Your high-top sneaks look bold and stylish with your skinny jeans tucked into them. Donning them this way makes you look so edgy people will wonder if you front a punk-rock band. If you don't want so much of your shoe showing, try to pull your pants over the tops of the shoes. Depending on how tapered your skinny jeans are, you may not be able to pull this off. But if you can, it looks adorable and funky -- in a good way, of course.
