Yesterday the weather called for ankle boots to wear while out running errands. As I was slipping into my jeans, I realized they looked frumpy paired with my cute ankle boots. I decided to try cuffing them....VOILA...instant update and a fresh look to my jeans! Of course with fall weather, ankle boots are the "IN" trend to pair with our denim and what better time to try out this style trick. When wearing straight leg jeans with ankle boots, you need to maintain the right proportions. The idea is to cuff your jeans to where the bottom of your cuff hits just below the top of your boot. This will determine the amount of times you roll up your hem. You can also cuff your jeans to allow some leg to show between boot and hem of jean when wearing a flared shape leg. This silhouette gives you more height and some attitude.
Pair your jeans with a simple white tee and a plaid shirt or jacket to go to a ballgame. Or opt to wear pointed toe ankle boots with a slightly over sized sweater and leather trench to meet your friends for lunch. Better yet, wear a classic turtleneck paired with a cool fake fur jacket and some pointy metallic booties for a chic and sophisticated look to wear out on the town. Another new "HOT TREND" is cropped sweatshirts worn with white kitten heel ankle boots. Add a pop of color with your sunglasses or a great crossbody bag or mini leather tote and you have a laid back, casual vibe to wear for the day.
Whatever look you choose to wear, breathe some new life into your denim wardrobe. Just by cuffing your jeans, this simple style trick will have you looking and feeling edgy, fashion forward, and on trend. Tell me ways you like to wear your denim. I would love to hear any comments you have regarding this style trick. Have a great weekend!
