Denim is the most worn fabric in the world. It can be matched to anything from silk to cotton and can be dressed up or down. It is a very versatile fabric which is why it has its place in every wardrobe. Jeans are a staple piece in everyone’s closet. They are comfortable and versatile because of their fabric. There are many different types of jeans inspired from different trends such as the flared jeans (70’s) and the mom jeans (80’s). Although all different jeans can be worn with any pair of shoes, there is a type of shoe that it just looks better when worn with a specific type of jeans. Below there is my personal guide to which shoe to match with your jeans.
Skinny jeans are the most worn and popular style. They elongate the legs and also are figure-hugging, hence very feminine. Wear them with a pair of stiletto pumps in a neutral color like nude or black and you will be the epitome of style and elegance.
The famous 80’s trend, mom jeans are high-waisted and with a loose fit for a more comfortable feel. Since they are the most comfortable ones (mom’s wear them right?) wearing them with a pair of sneakers is a must. Sneakers are extremely comfortable as well, plus they have a laid back, cool vibe once paired with mom jeans. Perfect for everyday!
Another trend from the past, flared jeans are a 70’s staple. Ideal for curvier figures, these jeans are one of the hottest trends of this season. Wear them with a pair of platforms or sandals with chunky heels for the perfect relaxed, bohemian look.
Boyfriend jeans, as the name suggests, are the least feminine ones. They have a loose, more masculine straight fit and usually hung quite low. Since these jeans are not very feminine, the best way to make them look more flattering is to match them with a pair of heels. A pair of heeled, strappy sandals is the perfect match for a sexier and more flattering look. If you –like me- don’t wear high heels on a daily basis, a pair of low, chunky heels would also look lovely with boyfriend jeans.
Cropped are the jeans that stop above the ankle. It is a style that doesn’t work for everyone, as I find that if you have shorter legs, these jeans make them look even shorter. Cropped jeans look amazing with any type of shoe: heels, snickers, sandals, espadrilles and so on, however, 70’s chunky heels, will elongate the legs and slim the figure. If you are on the taller side, apart from lower heels, sneakers or espadrilles would be a perfect match for your cropped jeans.
Jeans are extremely versatile; although they are really comfortable hence the perfect choice for a day outfit, they can also help create an elegant and fancy night outfit.
