Types of Skinny Jeans & How to Style Them With Ankle Boots
For ankle boots, you can try a chelsea boot or a nice pair of heeled booties. In terms of material, you can try black leather boots or faux leather to add some sophistication to your outfit. If you have shorter legs, try wearing petite skinny jeans and heeled ankle boots to make your legs look longer. If you are planning an outfit for a night out, you can try black skinny jeans with black ankle boots – the black on black will make your legs look slimmer and more defined.
When to Tuck Jeans Into Boots or Booties
While skinny jeans typically line up with the opening of your ankle boot, sometimes you might want to wear a taller ankle boot. When wearing booties that go slightly above your ankle and your hemming, it looks best to tuck your skinny jeans into your boots. This looks natural and creates a beautiful contrast with your skinny jeans.
