Wear Skinny Jeans with Ankle Boots VIDEO

How Do I Wear My Ankle Boots with Skinny Jeans?

 

I’ve heard this question a LOT. It is a very common issue, and here’s why:

1) Every pair of jeans is a different length.
If you buy a cropped pair, it is likely between 25″ – 29″
“Regular” jeans vary between 30″ – 33″
A 33″+ inseam is ideal for taller women

2) Booties are all varying heights
Some fall below the ankle bone, while others are almost mid-calf.

3) And, WE are all different sizes.
After dressing 100’s of women, I can tell you with certainly… no two women are shaped alike!
This further complicates things.

But, don’t worry, I’m sharing FIVE very simple and stylish ways to wear your ankle boots with your skinny jeans below.

#1 | Cropped Jeans

In the look above, I’m wearing Good American cropped jeans (sold out, similar here) with a 27-inch inseam.
It’s the perfect length for my ankle boots, falling just above the top of the bootie.

Wearing cropped jeans is the easiest solution to the problem!
Because… you don’t have to do anything! (as long as the cropped hemline falls above the top of your ankle boots)

#2 | Big Cuff

If you are petite like I am, you might want to go with this guy (above)…the big cuff!
It will raise the hemline of your jeans by 4 inches or more.
I have to do this with almost ALL of my Citizens of Humanity jeans.
Not all jeans look good cuffed like this, so be sure to try them out first.

#3 | Double Cuff

My petite ladies may also enjoy the “double cuff!”
You cuff your jeans about an inch and then you cuff them again…
This should raise your jeans by about 4 inches as well.

By the way, these Rag & Bone jeans are PERFECT for cuffing.
(They are on the shorter side, ideal for petites.)

#4 | Tuck Jeans Under

 A quick way to make your long jeans a little shorter so they don’t compete with your ankle boots… tuck them under.
To keep your line looking long and lean, wear dark colored jeans and ankle boots.

The tuck under makes your jeans look classic and again keeps you looking taller.

#5 | Tuck Jeans Into Booties

I love simple solutions… when you have booties that are on the taller side, like these waterproof moto boots by Blondo
All you do is tuck your jeans into the boots!
Blondo, btw, makes stylish and affordable weather resistant boots.

Other Styling Suggestions

To keep you and your legs looking long and tall, go with the ‘tuck under‘ or ‘tuck in‘ methods.
Also, be sure to wear booties and jeans that are both dark colors.

Wear peds or no show socks with your booties so the tops of the socks don’t peep out.
If it’s REALLY cold, where taller boots…
Or try a thin, scrunchable sock that can peep out of your boots and look cute. (In a darker color).

Tell Me What You Think! leave a comment...

  1. This was the first video of yours that I watched and I love your style! Can you recommend another bootie that is close to the Rag and Bone suede bootie in stone sand because Nordstrom sold out!

  2. I have watched your channel for a long time, very informative, could you please do a blog on best watches to wear for business, casual and
    Dressy, as a business person I do not leave my house without wearing my watch as I do not always have my phone nearby and I think
    It. Looks very professional for women and men. Linda, Toronto, Canada

    1. I think you have a LOT of wonderful watch options… depending on your preference. you can wear an over-sized watch or a smaller, more dainty watch. I really love the big, chunky ones that have mixed metal bands so they go with everything. You can also pair them with a couple of great bracelets…for extra pop!

  3. Your fashion sense is on point! I enjoy your videos and blog soo much. I much prefers blog posts about functional type of outfits, whether it be for the office, running errands or special events. Editorial fashion is fun and inspirational but not exactly functional. Keep up the awesome job of giving women (“grown up women”) great styling tips. The outdoor photos are beautiful.

    1. Thank you so much, Celina! I hear you… functional is the MOST helpful! I DO like to sprinkle in a little fun fashion every once in a while, but my primary focus and passion is definitely fashion AND function. Thank you for your sweet, supportive words! I’m really grateful… Erin xo
