Every gal needs a pretty pair of mid-heel pumps she can turn to when she needs to straddle the line between casual and dressy. With just enough height to make you feel suitably glam, but without looking over the top for casual occasions, mid-heel pumps can work in many fun and flirty ways. Mid-heel pumps also go well with jeans. From cropped to skinny, many different types of jeans go well with these heels.


Flash a hint of ankle if you want to show off your heels to their full potential. Cropped styles look effortlessly chic when paired with a simple t-shirt, blazer and mid-height heels. If you’re rocking a fuller-figure, team your fitted cropped jeans with a tunic-length top to make this trend work for you. Petite gals should team their cropped jeans with a fitted top to keep things in proportion. If you want to create the illusion of longer legs, cropped jeans and nude mid-height heels should be your go-to option.


Skinny jeans have become a firm favorite among women everywhere -- for good reason. Skinny jeans are flattering, figure-hugging and extremely versatile, and every gal should have at least one pair in her closet. Your skinny jeans should gather slightly at the ankle to show off your shoes and draw the eye downward. Team your skinny jeans and heels with a fitted blazer for a look that will take you from a day of errands to drinks with your girlfriends in an instant.


If you’re sporting some enviable curves, boot-cut jeans should be your go-to style. The flare at the bottom of your jeans will balance out a top-heavy or curvy frame beautifully. Choose a dark wash style for slimming results and a dressier finish. Let your mid-height heels peep out from underneath your jeans to leave others guessing as to whether you are rocking sky-high heels or chic ballet flats. Throw on a simple tee, printed scarf and large tote bag for a cute daytime look. If you want to pump up the glam factor, switch your tee for sparkly top and tote for a clutch for a pretty party feel.


Sure, blue and black jeans have their place as staple, everyday colors, but if you want to add a dose of fun to your look, then colored jeans are the way to go. Rock a pair in red, bottle green or deep brown for a fashion-forward look. Don’t be afraid to stand out from the crowd and try a bright hue. Team your jeans with a color-clashing top for an outfit that’s bursting with punch and personality.
