Skinny jeans and ankle boots are two items that can be found in the closets of almost every woman. You really can’t wrong with these items, thanks to their classic status and versatility.

Maybe your favorite pair of booties just don’t look quite right with your jeans. In this post, we’ll be addressing some different ways to style your skinny jeans and ankle boots together. You may even be inspired to wear this combo in a way you never considered before!

How to Wear Skinny Jeans With Booties

Find Jeans with the Perfect Length

Naturally, finding jeans that are just the right length is going to make styling your ankle boots a lot easier. Ideally, you’d like the hem of your jeans to just hit the top of your boots or an inch or so higher. If you have a pair of jeans that are a bit too long for this style, consider having them hemmed to perfectly pair with your booties.

Cuff Your Jeans

If you find that the hem of your jeans is a bit too long for your chosen pair of ankle boots, rolling them into a cuff is a quick and stylish fix. Cuffing your skinny jeans has such a chic and effortless feel and is even figure-flattering, as it draws the eye to the smallest part of your leg. When cuffing your jeans, make sure to keep the cuff about 1-2 inches long to avoid excess bulk.

Add Some Extra Detail

If you’re feeling a bit bold, accessorizing under your jeans is a fun way to add something special to your look. The combination of ripped jeans, fishnets, and black boots makes for a killer edgy aesthetic. If the fishnets are too rock-and-roll for your taste, you can also go for lace or patterned tights for a more feminine style.

Try Jeans with a Raw Hem

Raw-hem jeans can be found everywhere right now and are a huge favorite for their slightly edgy and cool feel. Thankfully, these jeans are also ideal for wearing with ankle boots! Raw-hem jeans often have a slightly cropped hem that fits perfectly over most ankle boots and will give you a look that’s casual, yet chic. Better yet, this style is great for showing off a particularly amazing pair of boots without your jeans taking any attention away.

Tuck Them

Tucking your jeans into your booties might not be the most popular option but, particularly with taller ankle boots, tucking in the hem of your jeans can be a much more flattering option that embraces that effortless, “carefree-chic” look that so many of us try to achieve. If you’re still not totally on-board with tucking your jeans or find yourself with a shorter pair of ankle boots, slightly scrunching them at the ankle is another good way to capture that same stylishly undone look. 

When you’re wearing a combo that’s as tried-and-true as ankle boots and skinny jeans, there really aren’t many wrong ways to do it. Don’t be afraid to get in your closet and play around with different styles! As long as you consider the length of your jeans, the height of your boots, and your own personal style, these casualwear staples can be styled endlessly.
