Jeans go well with just about anything but if you’re going for a certain look, you’ll want to wear the right shoes with them. Now, deciding on what shoes to wear with jeans is actually rather easy unless you have a hundred pairs to choose from. Here are some tips that might help you narrow down your choices.

BLACK PUMPS

Going for the classic ‘model off duty’ look? A pair of black pumps is sure to look great with any pair of jeans you’re planning to wear – be it skinny ones, bootleg, straight cut or even cropped. Not sure what shoes would look great with that outfit you’re wearing? Black pumps can surely do the trick for you, too.

NUDE HEELS

If you don’t have very long legs and you want to pull off cropped jeans, a pair of nude heels can help you achieve the illusion of longer legs to make it work. Make sure your nude heels match or at least come close to your skin tone to maximize the elongating effect. You can also wear nude heels with jeans that have a rather short hemline.

PRINTED PUMPS

If you’re going for as simpler look and you want your shoes to be the main focus of your outfit, go for printed pumps. These will look fab with basic jeans and a simple top because they will really stand out.

LOAFERS

For an easy, casual and laidback weekend look, you can wear your jeans with loafers. Loafers are great because they’re super comfy and there are so many styles and designs to choose from – plain suede, embellished canvass, sleek leather. They’re also a great alternative to flats if you want something a little less girly and a bit more versatile.

FLIP FLOPS AND FLAT SANDALS

Jeans and flip flops or flat sandals make the perfect combo for an easy summer outfit. Flip flops and flat sandals with jeans are great for when you want to pop by the beach for a walk, for a quick trip to the mall or for running everyday errands.

SNEAKERS

Whether you’re going for a slightly sporty look or a tomboy-ish kind of vibe, a pair of sneakers is definitely your best bet. With regular jeans, your sneakers can lend your outfit just the right hint of that sporty vibe but with full on ripped and distressed pants, you can achieve a really cool tomboy look.

BOOTS

You can’t go wrong with a boots-and-jeans combo. Ankle boots are great for summer while taller boots are perfect to pair up with your jeans in winter. Going for that ‘Ride or Die chick’ look? Pair up your jeans with a beat up pair of moto boots. You can also wear cowboy boots with your jeans to get that country princess look.
