If you're ready to rock a pair of stellar black boots for the cooler weather, pulling them on with a pair of jeans is a knee-jerk reaction shared by most women. Though it sounds like a simple-to-assemble ensemble, if you're standing in front of your closet, wondering if certain rinses are more appropriate for chilly weather, you can make yourself a bit crazy. Whether you opt for colorful denim or classic blue jeans, you'll find pairing jeans and black boots to be quite the easy task.
If you're staring at your black boots thinking about how sexy they look on their own and worrying that pairing them with jeans will tone down the va-va-voom factor, think again -- black jeans feel like jeans but don't lend the same super-relaxed feel as a pair of your favorite blue weekend pair. Start with a black cowl-neck sweater with a banded hemline for a comfy-yet-feminine take on the winter sweater. Pull on a pair of black skinny jeans from solid black to a barely-faded wash. Pull on your black, high-heel, knee-high boots and you're done.
Dark wash jeans fit into the jean world somewhere between black jeans and medium-blue wash jeans -- black jeans are the ultimate in dressy denim while medium-blue is more of an everyday hue. When you want to step it up a notch without looking too dressed up, pull on a silky, printed blouse -- think cream with a navy micro-floral design. Pull on a pair of straight-leg dark wash blue jeans and step into black, chunky-heel ankle boots. Stack your jeans over the boots for a sleek finish.
Super Light Blue
Just because you have black boots doesn't mean you need to try to match their sleek appearance. Dressing down a pair of black boots is simpler than you might imagine. Begin your laid-back, boho-chic look with a light-hued, peasant-style blouse worn loosely over a pair of super-light blue skinny boyfriend jeans. Pull on a pair of flat black suede boots over your jeans. Look for boots with a slouchy shaft or fringe detailing for an extra boho edge.
If you've been itching to try out colored denim, wearing a pair of colorful jeans with a pair of black boots is a foolproof way to get started. For your foray into on-trend territory, pull on a pair of straight-leg jeans in a solid hue such as cobalt blue or dark red. Pull on a heather gray dolman-sleeve T-shirt for a relaxed look. Slide your feet into a pair of black booties with a high, chunky heel and enjoy.
