Can I Wear These Boots with Those Jeans? Your Questions…Answered!
Some of the most common questions I get are… “What boots do I wear with these jeans!? Can I wear these boots with those jeans? Do I cuff them?”
There are so many types of jeans and boots now…it can get VERY confusing! So in the video above, I’m walking you through how to wear different boots, with each specific kind of jeans… so you don’t have to wonder or worry anymore!
I have also created the graphic below for quick reference on how to wear boots with jeans!
Breaking it Down…
Hopefully the video and graphic above will help you, but if you feel like you need more explanation, I also break it all down below.
Pinch and Roll…
#1 | Skinny Jean
The first thing I want to address is the traditional skinny jean.
With the traditional skinny jeans, you have multiple options.
I did a video on how to wear ankle boots with skinny jeans if you want to go back and watch it here.
With skinny jeans, you can either tuck the jeans into the boots, cuff the jeans once, double cuff, or you can do the J. Crew roll.
I show you how to do all of these in the video above.
With skinny jeans & boots, the key is to minimize bunching. Your jeans shouldn't compete w/ your boots.Click To Tweet
#2 | Cropped Jean
The next pair of jeans I want to tackle… is the cropped jean. Ankle boots and cropped jeans are a match made in heaven.
The hemline of the jean is typically not going to compete with the boots, which means you do NOTHING. Yay!
If you have a taller ankle boot (more mid-calf), all you have to do is cuff the jeans once to create that jean-boot harmony!
Try Sock Booties…
#3 | Split Hem Jean
The split hem jean is wonderful for framing a beautiful pair of pumps or sandals… but you can also rock em’ with your booties.
You can try the traditional ankle bootie. But an even better option is …the sock bootie!
Sock booties are a lot more versatile than you think, and can work with cropped split hem jeans, or full-length split hem jeans.

With Zipper Bottom Jeans…

#4 | Zipper Bottom Jeans
Jeans with a zipper at the ankle are the same concept as the split hem jean.
If you’re going to do a classic bootie just play with the zipper so that it ends at a spot where the jeans will lay flat against the booties.
You can also pair them easily with sock booties.
Works well with Sock Booties…
#5 | Kick Flare Jeans
The last pair of jeans I want to talk about are kick flare. These jeans are cropped, fitted in the thighs and legs, and flare out at the bottom.
Kick flare jeans are made for ankle booties. But they are also perfect with sock or mid-calf bootues.
This style of jean is very popular right now, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon!

Wear Taller Boots OVER Skinny Jeans…
With Mid-Calf Booties, Cuff Your Cropped Jeans…
Mid-Calf & Moto Boots
If you have a taller boot, like moto boots or mid-calf boots, I would wear those over the jeans.
If your jeans are cropped and too short to tuck in, but too long to do nothing, simply cuff the jeans one time.
OTK Goes Over Skinny Jeans…
Lastly, let’s talk about over the knee boots and knee-high boots. They should always be worn with skinny jeans or leggings (or skirts and dresses).
If you try them with any other type of jeans, you will get major bunching.
