When you’re not wearing your go-to skinny jeans with statement heels, odds are you opt for a pair of ankle boots. The jean-and-shoe combination is a staple in every girl’s outfit rotation, so how does one keep the look fresh season after season? It’s simple: Update your ankle boot selection. The silhouette of skinny jeans only slightly changes over time (a higher rise, a cropped ankle, a slight flare, etc.), so the easiest way to keep the combination looking cool is to swap your boot selection.
This season, one of our favorite shoe styles to pair with skinnies is a good pair of sock boots. The trend not only lends an elevated vibe, but also secretly elongates your legs. Since the boots are form-fitting around your ankles, they perfectly slip under a pair of skinny jeans, enhancing your legs with a long, lean line.
