Skinny Jeans are a fashion trend that has stuck around for several years. And for most of those years, I was adamantly opposed to them. I’m not really sure why. Maybe I was just intimidated by them. But now that I have a few pairs, I find I really like them. The challenge with any wardrobe piece is monotony. I wear it the same, every time.
That will not happen with your skinnies! There are hundreds of ways to style them, but I’m going to focus on the way you pair them with shoes.
How to Style Skinny Jeans
Here is one outfit with skinny jeans, worn with three different pairs of shoes.
Sandals – A cute pair of frilly sandals is always a great item to have in your arsenal. They’re fun and flirty and little dressier than flip flops.
They give this outfit a summer look. Even with the cardigan! I love it.
Ballet Flats – I love these flats. I wear them to church, out on a date, or just to check the mail. We’re tight like that.
I rolled up the cuff of my skinnies – not too far though. They’re called skinnies for a reason. (And that reason is that I can’t get them up my calf very far!!) I love the classy yet laid back look it gives this outfit.
Riding boots – I wanted boots for a long time. I searched high and low for the perfect pair. I love these, and I LOVE what they do to this outfit!
A friend of mine took one look at me and said, “Uh…You know you look like you just walked out of a catalog, right? Well, I wouldn’t go that far, but they do make me feel very sassy and professional. I always wear my boots and skinnies when I do my photography sessions. Combined with the cardigan, it makes this outfit perfect for fall or winter.
So there you have it. One pair of skinnies dressed three different ways doing nothing but changing the shoes. Going dancing? Put on some heels and kick it! Going grocery shopping? Flip flops it is. First day of school? Try it out with some ankle boots.
Skinny jeans are very versatile. If you’re new to skinnies, don’t be nervous! I can’t believe I lost out on all those years together just because I was intimidated by them.
