How To Wear Ankle Boots With Straight Leg Jeans
Jeans have become a fashion staple because they go with everything. They always look great, especially, when matched with a good pair of shoes. One of the most commonly asked questions in the world of fashion is how to wear ankle boots with straight leg jeans.
What is Straight Leg Jeans
The straight leg is a term used with a lot of jeans, but it doesn't always mean the same thing. For some brands, straight leg means jeans that are skinny but don't hug your ankle tightly. For some, it's a consistent leg width all the way from the hip (or knee) to the hem. Other brands may fall somewhere in between.
So how can you tell if the jean is 'straight' or not? Try to take the bottom hem and fold it up to your knee. It's a true straight leg if it's the same width. If it's wider, it's more of a boot. If it's narrower, then it's more of a slim or skinny style.
Three Ways To Wear Your Ankle Boots With Jeans
- Roll the hem of your jeans up two times to create a thin cuff. Cuffs or rolls are one of the easiest and popular ways to pair jeans with ankle boots. To make a double cuff, you can fold the hem once and fold it again over. The cuff should bring the lower edge of your jeans just above your ankle showing a small part of your skin between the boot and the jeans
- Cuff the hem of a pair of skinny jeans once for a daring look. A single fold can create a bold block at the bottom of the jean without showing off too much skin. Fold the hem up once to make a cuff that is 1–2 inches wide. Single cuffs look great for those who have long legs. For those who have shorter legs, try to keep the cuffs smaller than 1 inch to avoid making your legs look short.
- Hide the cuffs by folding the hem inside of the jeans. If you think the cuffed look doesn't suit your personal fashion style, you may try folding the hems inward. Fold the hem inside of the leg of jeans instead of outside until you create about one inch of space between your jeans and your boots. It is best to fold the jeans only once for a hidden cuff. Try to iron the new hem at the bottom of the pant leg. This way, it can keep the fold in place all throughout the day.
- Try not to tuck the hem into the boot. It may be tempting because it's easy to just tuck your jeans into the boots but doing this can make your leg look shorter. The jeans can bunch around your ankles making it look wide and messy.
Now you know some different ways on how to wear ankle boots with straight leg jeans. Go ahead and try those styles, and don't forget to wear it with your confident smile.
