HOW TO WEAR SKINNY JEANS WITH BOOTS

I am constantly asked about how to wear booties with skinny jeans. This is a real dilemma for many women, so I decided to write this post to give some tips on the subject. I feel strongly that there is no absolute "rule"  that holds true for every woman. We all have unique body types, leg lengths, etc. so it really is best to decide for yourself what you feel looks best. IF YOU FEEL LIKE THE WAY YOU ARE WEARING A SKINNY JEAN AND BOOTIE MIGHT NOT LOOK GREAT, it probably doesn't. Go with your INSTINCTS!!!

Here are my suggestions to consider:

Because skinny jeans by nature get more narrow as they go down the leg, a bootie is a nice way to create some balance. But, if you have short legs for example, and tuck the jean into a bootie, this makes your legs look even shorter. Remember:  we are going for a long line or column. In my opinion, it looks best to slightly scrunch the jean up where the hem meets the shoe rather than to tuck the jean inside. Many times, with super skinny jeans, the pant is too long when you purchase it. You can still have the scrunchy effect with less fabric, and  it gives a more clean look. This type of alteration is not expensive , and can make a big difference .

 This look isn't the best, because the jeans are tucked in like tights, and the booties are a different color than the pant, which creates a chopped up unsophisticated look.

If you have a "jegging", it is fine to tuck it into the bootie if the bootie and jean are the same color (black, for example). Here again, if there is too much fabric, the bootie won't fit correctly, and you will be uncomfortable around your ankle.

The most current way to wear skinny jeans is to choose jeans that stop at the ankle or slightly above, leaving a very small space between bootie and jean. This look is super chic and modern.

The other option is to go for a straight leg jean, rather than a super skinny, so you can pull the jean down over the bootie, creating the longest, cleanest look possible.

 Another great look is to wear thigh-high boots  with the jeans tucked in.

Which is your favorite? Right now I am wearing my thigh high boots, because it is so cold outside! I hope this post has helped if you have been feeling confused about how to wear this look! Keep sending in your questions, and thanks for reading!
