4 Tips to Styling Booties with Skinny Jeans
#1 Tuck It In:
To avoid any extra fabric at the top of the boot, I always suggest tucking in your jeans in the top of the bootie booties for an elongating effect for your leg. Since skinny jeans already are very fitted to the leg, they are super flattering to add body types!
Tucking the hem of the jeans into the top of the boot continues on that flattering line and is such a sleek look. I especially love to do this when I am pairing black on black, as I am petite and this really gives the illusion of longer legs.
#2 Opt for Cropped:
Of course the fit and length of your jeans depends on personal preference, but opting for a cropped length is a great option for pairing with booties as the hem of your jeans hits at the top of your boot as opposed to having to tuck it in.
#3 Be Mindful of Colors:
When styling booties with skinny jeans, try to be mindful of the colors you are wearing. The color pairing of your boots and denim combo is a simple way to differentiate day looks vs night looks in your wardrobe and match the occasion.
For instance, I would wear lighter colored denim and nude booties to style a casual look for day, and for a polished night look I would wear dark blue or black jeans with sleek black boots for a seamless look.
#4 Cuff It:
Whether you prefer a single cuff or double cuffed look, rolling up the hem of your jeans is a great option to control wear the jeans hit on your leg.
This is a great way to really customize the look of your jeans and is the best way to pair with booties as you can decide depending on the height of the bootie where you want your jeans to hit. This is a great tip to use for bootcut jeans as well.
You can try cuffing many types of jeans but skinny jeans work best since they fit so much closer to the leg. If you are petite like me, try a double cuff!
Try different colors of skinny jeans
You don’t have to just stick with black and blue jeans! Different colors, or even textures like these coated jeans are a good idea. These are the best option when you are looking for something to switch up your wardrobe.
What are the best booties to wear with skinny jeans
There are so many great options for booties, here are the best boots that you can shop:
Best Ankle Bootie for Petite Ladies
If you want something that is more flattering on the leg, I highly recommend these ankle cut booties. If you are petite like me (I’m 5’2″) with short legs so having the ankle cut out breaks up the line between the jean and the boot which helps elongate my legs.
These are a favorite as they have the chunky heel and the ankle cut out so they are super comfy and can be worn from fall to winter. I highly recommend getting some ankle
