What kind of boots to wear with wide leg jeans?

The key to styling wide-leg jeans with boots lies in choosing the right heel height, shape and width. While sky-high stilettos with wide-leg pants do create a runway-worthy look, they may not be the most comfortable or practical choice for an active day.

A better option is a block heel. Block heels provide extra support and stability, allowing you to confidently stride through your day in style.

Don’t discount the comfort of a slim heel, especially if the heel is only one or two inches in height. A low, sleek heel provides just enough lift to balance out the voluminous silhouette of wide-leg pants while still allowing freedom of movement.

You don’t have to just wear black wide leg jeans in cold weather. Dark wash wide leg jeans are an alternative shade that you can wear in winter.

White wide leg jeans are another versatile pair of jeans that look great on everyone and you can wear most ankle boots with them. But again avoid wearing really contrasting dark shades like:

Ankle Boots For Cropped Wide Leg Jeans

If your jeans fall right above your ankle then these are considered cropped. While I don’t recommend wearing these style of wide leg jeans because they just make you look short, you can still get away with making it stylish.

Specially if you are on a taller side, then you really don’t care if these wide leg jeans are making you look short. You can actually pick flat ankle boots with these styles of wide leg jeans. Here are the top styles that will flatter your cropped wide leg jeans looks:

  • Flat combat boots with lace detail: They will add a little bit of detail to your outfit.
  • Lug sole boots: These boots will still add some definition to your outfit with the sole but are flat, so comfortable to walk.
  • Pointed heel ankle boots: This will dress up your cropped wide leg jeans look. 

In terms of colors of boots, you can follow the same styles as mentioned above depending on the shade of your jeans.

  2. Square Toe Ankle Boots: These look modern and sophisticated. And a must for every women’s wardrobe.
