Try brown tights with brown boots, gray with gray, or mustard with your light brown boots! But layered over leggings makes for a cute wintery look.
Who knows what happened … maybe I just saw too many bloggers looking fabulous in them that I could no longer resist? But now I own four pairs and practically live in them. There are so many fun ones out there: Tucking your pants into your ankle boots creates a long, lean leg line. Rolled or double cuffed jeans are a cute look with booties and allow for a little bit of your ankle to show through, and highlighting that skinny area down there and keeping your ankles from looking wide.
This look works best with skinny jeans. Straight-legged or wider-legged jeans shorten your leg line when rolled. When wearing jeans with booties, an exposed ankle is key to keeping your ankles looking as slim as possible. One of the ways to create this gap between the jeans and boots is a cuffed hem. Try this look with a longer pair of skinny jeans, rather than an ankle length pair.
A larger cuff inches tall is more flattering. One of my favorite looks when pairing jeans with booties is the half cuff. But layered over leggings makes for a cute wintery look. Go for a neutral-colored sock to avoid drawing too much attention down there.
Shorter socks as opposed to knee-length socks are easier to pull of as well. There is less to bunch, and therefore less bulk. A monochromatic look is a great way to wear those taller ankle boots. But a pair of black tights and a black pencil skirt creates a sleek long black line that makes it so the height of the boot is irrelevant.
Try a fun patterned top to offset the monochromatic bottom! Try brown tights with brown boots, gray with gray, or mustard with your light brown boots! Although the previous look shows tights, this look shows colorful tights, which are a great way to incorporate some color into your outfit.
Like I mentioned before, socks are super trendy this year. Unless that's what you're going for, of course. Has a cape every looked this sexy? And it's largely thanks to this gal's deep-V stilettos, which show just the right amount of toe cleavage. Photo via Lady Mortiarty in Paris. For a decidedly hip look, top off your skinny black jeans with a set of thick socks, rolled at the ankle, and a pair of cognac lace-up Oxfords.
We're not implying that this was intentional, but we love how this gal's tasseled loafers match the color of her hair. And she's showing just the right amount of skin at her ankle.
To make a statement, pair a geometric printed bootie with a pair of slim trousers and a colored coat. This gal's cool pair of bi-tonal boots picks up the colors of both her skinnies and her leather bomber. A rounded toe black boot with a low heel is adds just the right amount of height to a very casual, but very stylish, look.
An excellent example of the naked sandal done right: Going for a more sporty appeal than dressy one is a perfectly legitimate option, of course. Slip-on sneakers are going to be all the rage this spring, but there's alway the more traditional lace-up option, too. And if the Chanel Couture show is to be believed , sneakers might just be the new heels.
No one ever said you have to go sky-high when you wear heels. This pair, which are almost but not quite kitten height are just as stylish as a set of gargantuan stilettos.
A nude, pointy ballet flat: With sneakers all the rage at the moment , this gal does a fantastic job of rocking a neon fuchsia and offsetting it with a cool, relatively neutral print on her sweater.
An example of socks-and-shoes done well: If stiletto pumps are a bit girly for your taste, or just a bit uncomfortable for your taste, a pair of moto boots will do the trick. Black on black will ramp up your badass factor, but they will work with classic blue jeans too.
Flat Shoes with Skinny Jeans If you have long legs and narrow hips, ballet flats and skimmers are great for pairing with skinny jeans. Since they're not at all bulky, they won't stand out or call too much attention to your feet, and they also help continue the lean silhouette created by the skinny jeans. If the skinny jeans you’re planning on wearing are ankle-length or frayed at the ends, then you might want to go with a pair of ankle boots as your first shoe choice.

Wear loafer flats with skinny jeans.
