Guide to Styling Booties & Denim
Here in Flagstaff, fall is in the air! As we push toward cooler temperatures and the morning air feels crisp, it’s hard not to dream of a cozy knit sweater and warm booties on your feet, kind of day.
Ankle boots, booties, mid-calf boots, knee-high boots, thigh-high boots... the list seems endless! As we begin to jump into the season, we’re focusing on booties and denim, the perfect pairing to almost any cozy top.
Not surprisingly, with the plethora of options, there are endless combinations of styling each type of boot with every type of bottom. From straight leg to bootcut to cropped, we’ve got you covered on the best ways to style each pair of denim in your closet with the best booties around.
SKINNY & STRAIGHT LEG DENIM
ROLLED & CUFFED HEM
This style works best with skinny or straight leg jeans, though we love the look when pulled off with a great pair of boyfriend fit denim!
Wearing this style with a bootie gives you the option to show off the full boot and a little bit of your ankle. Make sure you can see your entire boot when rolling your jeans, do not try to tuck them into the shoe.
The ripped hem… one of our favorites! You can wear a ripped, ankle hem jean with almost any style. Your pant hem should not cover your bootie. If it does, cuff your ripped denim one time. You'll still get the stylish ripped look, without covering your boot!
WIDE LEG & BOOTCUT DENIM
A classic look, that you can’t go wrong with! Make sure you’re booties of choice have some height to them, either a block heel or stiletto heel will work, depending on your denim choice.
When choosing booties with a heel, make your legs elongated by pairing denim and boots of the same color. Black jeans? Black boots. This is the oldest trick in the book and an easy way to make your legs appear leaner and longer!
