If you've got a pair of high boots, you'll definitely want to show them off. These more-forward, super-chic boots look fab when they have their chance to show off. So don't put on a jean that's going to cover them up. Instead, opt for a pair of jeans that'll help you work those boots.

Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are the best option for tall boots when it comes to denim. The going trend is to tuck your jeans into your boots. Skinnies are definitely your best option here. They fit snuggly throughout, making them easy to slip into your boots. You can find skinny jeans at practically any clothing store. If you don't already own a pair, they won't be difficult to find.

How They Should Fit

When a trend gets popular, everyone jumps on the bandwagon, creating different variations of the original. That means there are tons of different types of skinny jeans. You'll want to make sure you get yourself a pair that's fitted all the way down to the ankles. Some skinny jeans can have a bit of a loose fit from the knee down. When you tuck them into your boots, they can look a little baggy -- which completely ruins the effect of your stylish look. If your boots go over the knee, you'll only have to worry about your jeans being fitted up top, but if your boots don't quite make it to that mark, make sure your jeans are good and tight throughout to avoid a wardrobe mishap.

Other Options

Tired of being bound by your jeans? People say they're comfy, but in reality some jeans are stiff and get a little annoying to wear. Try jeggings to get the same look in a pair of amazingly comfortable pants. Jeggings are a hybrid of leggings and jeans -- yup, those jeans manufacturers really do think about everything. They feel like leggings but look like jeans. You can wear the incredibly snug pants all day without any discomfort, and they look fab tucked into your boots. Sounds like a win-win!

Get Colorful

Switch things up and slip on a pair of colorful denim. Your jeans should still be skinny of course, but feel free to experiment with different shades of denim since you don't have so much room to work different cuts. Stay neutral in grays and whites. Or, go bold in bright red, yellow and green shades.
