Shoes to Wear With Skinny Jeans

Depending on the occasion, strappy heels might feel too dressy, flat sandals can sometimes look too bulky, and you feel like you just can’t pull off sneakers.
Scroll down for your complete guide to what shoes to wear with skinny jeans.
Style Tip: Arguably the most on-trend shoes at the moment, classic lace-up sneakers definitely should have a place in your wardrobe, especially when paired with blue denim skinny jeans. These work well when you’re having a casual daytime event or simply running errands in a T-shirt and jeans.
