Hi, I'm Erin and I'm a fashion stylist. Okay, so you want to rock your boots in skinny jeans, but you're a little unsure about what to wear with them. Our model, Heather, has on one option. She is mixing her trendy skinny boots and jeans with a beautiful ivory blouse and a classic black blazer. I really love mixing edgy with elegant pieces. The blouse blazer combo adds elegance to the trendy boots and jeans. Heather looks sophisticated and stylish. When wearing skinny jeans remember you want to try a looser fitting blouse or something on top that comes down to your hips like the blazer Heather is wearing. The roomier tops will balance out the tightness of the jeans. The length will cover some of your bottom and hips. Notice that both her boots and jeans are darker colors. This creates a longer line and makes her look thinner. You can definitely wear lighter colored boots like camel or honey, they just won't be quite as slimming. Her accessories are minimal since her outfit already makes such a statement. She is sporting a black and gold cocktail ring and a pair of gold hoops. If you want a more casual feel with your boots and skinny jeans, you can pick out a flat boot. The heel on Heather's boots definitely dresses up the overall look. You can also swap the blazer and blouse for something a little more low key like a T shirt or a knit top. Again just be sure it's looser fitting, hip length or both and remember you can always try the ankle boot with your skinny jeans. I like to cuff the jeans when wearing them with an ankle boot or a bootie.
