When you rock the skinny look with chic jeans that hug your silhouette, keep the momentum going with just the right shoes. Because of the slim and svelte lines of skinnies, the wrong shoe will veer your look off course. Stay slim and graceful with shoes made for skinny jeans. Choose the right shoes to wear with skinny leg jeans and step out with fierce style.
Keep it lean and choose uber high heels to go with your skinny jeans. Your jeans hug your legs from the hips down to your ankles, so if you wear pumps or platforms with high heels, you can make the effect even longer and leaner. Strappy high-heeled sandals, chunky buckled pumps or even stiletto-heeled booties can finish an outfit with glamour. An added benefit -- the high-heel and skinny jean combo makes almost any bod look slimmer and taller, too.
Slip on a pair of pretty ballerina flats, preppy low-heeled oxfords or strappy flat sandals. You'll be comfy and stylin' at the same time. Keep in mind that you might end up looking heavier in the hip area when you wear flats with skinnies. Be brave and stay fierce, though. Even if you're not a rail and you carry a few extra pounds, you can keep your silhouette lean with shirts that hug and skim the body. One word of caution -- not every girl can pull off the skinny jean and sneaker combination. It just doesn't work unless you're going for an emo effect.
Boots were made for skinny jeans, especially knee-high boots with the jeans tucked smoothly inside. Booties and ankle boots also rock with skinnies, especially when you extend your leg with high-heeled boots. Girls who like the low-heeled riding boot look, don't despair. These boots pair just as nicely with skinny jeans for a chic and simple effect. Avoid chunky boots, though, to keep the silhouette svelte.
Wedges, strappies and buckled sandals pair effortlessly with skinny jeans. If you like heels, teeter around on sky-high sandals. Lower heeled sandals work just as well with skinnies, though, to create a fierce spring or summer look -- especially when you add a camisole or pretty tank on top. Even cropped skinnies can look especially chic with a pretty pair of wedges or strappy sandals.
