How to Wear Winter Boots with Jeans

Wearing a pair of boots is the perfect way to keep your feet warm in the winter while staying fashionable.

Method 1 of 11:
Pair cropped jeans with ankle boots.

If it’s not too cold out, you can show off a pop of ankle. Put on a pair of cropped jeans, then add a pair of ankle boots to leave around 1 in (2.5 cm) of your skin showing.

Method 2 of 11:
Use frayed jeans to accentuate your boots.

Jeans without a hem look cool and casual. Pick out a pair of wide jeans with frays, then pair them with ankle booties. Let the frays hang over the boots for a fabulous, chic outfit. [2] X Research source Many retailers sell jeans without hems that you can buy. If you want to make your own, just use scissors to cut the hems off your jeans, then rub the raw edges against your hand to make them fray. Light wash denim jeans look great with both black and brown booties.

Roll your jeans up to keep them outside your boots.

Longer jeans can be hard to style with ankle boots. Put your boots and your jeans on, then roll your jeans up twice to expose the lighter inside color of the denim. [3] X Research source The contrast between the inside denim color and the outside denim color will draw attention to your boots. This look works great with ankle booties or lace-up boots.

Method 4 of 11:
Cuff your jeans for a hip, modern look.

A large cuff looks more interesting than a thin roll. Put your jeans and your boots on, then roll your jeans up once so they sit on top of your boots. [4] X Research source Large cuffs like this can make you look a little shorter. If you’re going for the illusion of length, stick to rolling your jeans up instead. Large cuffs look great on dark wash jeans with brown boots.

Stack your jeans on top of your boots for a more relaxed feel.

Looking casual isn’t hard with a pair of jeans and some boots. Put your jeans on, then slide your boots on after them. Pull your jeans up over the boots so they stack on top in a scrunched pile. [5] X Research source This trick works best with skinny or relaxed fit jeans. Boot cuts and flares won’t stay scrunched very well. This is one of the easiest ways to pair boots with jeans, and it requires almost no effort!

Method 7 of 11:
Tuck skinny jeans into boots for an easy look.

1
Skinny jeans won’t bunch up around your ankles, so they’re the best choice. Pull on your favorite pair of skinny jeans, then add a pair of lace-up boots, ankle boots, or over-the-knee boots to finish off your outfit. [7] X Research source Tucking jeans into boots looks best when your jeans and your boots are the same color. If you’d like to look taller, choose booties with a slight heel.

Try flare jeans with high-heel boots.

It’s never too late to try out a new style. Pull on a pair of flared jeans, then wear a sock boot or a high-heeled bootie that’s tight around your ankle. [8] X Research source The tighter the boot fits around your ankle, the better. If the fit is too wide, your jeans could get caught in the top of the boot, leading to bunching and scrunching. Black boots look great with dark wash denim, while brown boots look good with light wash jeans.
