There’s one sweater that’s been getting a ton of use these days and well friends, this is it. So much that I have another outfit with it coming soon. I also plan on packing it with me to Vermont in just two weeks. It’s got my favorite colors in it, it’s striped and it’s from Madewell. Basically perfection. I’ve been wearing all of my sweaters these days with skinny jeans. Decided to try something new and bring out the wide leg. But one question I get often is what’s the best shoes for wide leg jeans?!
WHAT SHOES TO WEAR WITH WIDE LEG JEANS
The wide leg jean is a personal favorite style that I do not wear often enough. In my opinion, they’re more flattering and easier to dress up. Sometimes I struggle with what shoes to wear with them though. All of mine in my closet require a 4 inch heel pretty much which instantly narrows things down to start with. Next I prefer a chunkier heel to stand up to the bold silhouette. Lastly, a peep toe. I like the idea of a little skin when wearing wide leg jeans. I usually wear these almost anytime I wear my wide leg, or for a neutral, these. You can shop them below.
A few other styles to wear with wide leg jeans are a pointed toe. It’s a sleek more professional look in my opinion and work great for the office on casual Friday (or i you have a pair of black wide leg trousers, that works too). You could also do a bootie, or regular boot. With so many bootie styles, from peep toes, to laser cut outs and more, there’s an endless selection. A few favorites below to shop from that will take your wide leg jeans from season to season.
One thing to always keep in mind when finding the perfect shoe for your beloved wide leg jeans (and if they aren’t beloved now, trust me they will be once you find the perfect shoe) is to ensure the hem of your jeans just kiss the ground. You don’t want your jeans dragging on the floor, or too high that you see your entire shoe. Make sure they just barely touch the ground for a pulled together polished look.
