Le Chateau


Cool. Strong. Sexy. There’s a pair of boots to match your every mood, and wearing them with jeans only seals the deal. Boots work best with skinny and/or boyfriend jeans. Choose a pair that hovers around the ankle and hugs the foot, then roll, fold or tuck the hem of jeans accordingly to showcase your boots du jour.

Tasselled Loafers

Comfort and style? Yes, please! Statement flats can transform any denim outfit. You can borrow from the boys in multihued croc-embossed oxfords or tread daintily in studded d’Orsay slippers. And who knew tasselled loafers could be so modern and edgy? Flats work best with slim-cut denim, but pointy-toed styles can also be paired with flared-leg and trouser-cut jeans. Whichever route you choose, focus on texture and embellishment as essential factors.

Black with a Twist

A pair of high heels is the foolproof way to add instant polish to jeans. Heels work best with jeans that are skinny, slightly relaxed or in between, such as boot-cut styles. Whether your preference is a classic tan, an unexpected neutral or a pair that’s black with a twist, try pointy-toed pumps. They lead the way as the chicest choice and have a steadfast, elongating effect.
