The trendy and comfy combination of jeans and leggings sent the fashion world into a collective frenzy, which quickly trickled down to the masses. Yes, jeggings have quickly become not only a hot fashion item but also seem to have a longer shelf life than originally expected. But, to properly embrace the jeggings trend, you must first know how to style them, and there's no better way to begin than with the hottest shoes.
Ladies, a fierce flat shoe not only gives your precious feet a break from the sky-high heels you wear to pound the pavement daily, but they also happen to look pretty fetching with a pair of jeggings. The slim-cut, body-hugging style of jeggings lends itself well to a flat shoe because it allows the shoe to stand out and been seen, whereas other pants styles can overshadow it. Since a flat shoe lacks the height of a heel, go for those that have bold colors and flashy details and embellishments. A classic ballet flat, oxford or lace-up style are a few of the flat shoe designs that complement your jeggings as you put your best foot forward in a pair of flats.
Think of pumps as the LBD of the shoe world. They practically go with everything, are universally flattering and are generally appropriate for most occasions. In this case, a pair of fabulous pumps are just the thing you need to give your casual jeggings a dose of drama and sexiness. Whether you prefer a round toe, pointed toe, stiletto heel or a chunky style, a stylish pump looks great with a slim-cut jegging because the eye will go straight to your shoes, allowing them to be the focal point. You can easily wear pumps during the day or night, just remember that styles with more details and embellishments are best suited for evening wear, as they can be too distracting during the day.
Equally comfy and attention-grabbing, a wedge is a good way to get the height of a heel minus the unwelcome foot pain. Planting themselves in any season, wedges are appropriate to wear all year long. Boots, sandals, pumps and sneakers are all styles that are known to feature wedge designs. When you wear jeggings, your legs are covered in a tight fabric, and due to the cut on them they can often make your lower legs appear smaller so you don't want your wedge to be too big and clunky. Try to keep your wedge between two to four inches. Anything bigger will look disproportionate and make your feet look bigger, and anything smaller might get lost amongst the long length of your jeggings.
The classic sandal style gets a dose of fashion drama and glamour. Gladiator sandals have proved to be a shoe mainstay during the warmer months of the year. Largely due to their comfort and leg-enhancing design, gladiator sandals are a hot shoe that look good with jeggings. However, you must be careful that the length of your jeggings doesn't interfere with the high-cut style of gladiator sandals. Unless you have super long legs and can't avoid it, try to get jeggings with slightly shorter inseams so that the entire sandal shows and the bottom doesn't overlap.
