Everyone has their own personal fashion pet-peeves, but I feel like mine is one that should be shared with the world. Is it revolutionary? Probably not, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't be discussing it here. I have vowed to never wear skinny jeans that are too long or bunch up at the bottom with ankle boots. Why? Because the extra material makes it appear as though I have a, well, cankle, for lack of a better word.
To me, this is the most unflattering skinny jean style you can wear with ankle boots. Instead, I always opt for an ankle-grazing pair of skinny jeans. This way, the jean ends right where your boot starts, allowing for the most streamlined silhouette possible. Why would you choose bunching and bulkiness when you can so easily have the opposite? There is definitely a time for lengthier skinny jeans, but in my personal opinion, ankle-grazing pairs are the best style to wear when you're searching for the most flattering denim-and–ankle boot combination.
Here, I have pulled some of my favorite ankle boot and skinny jean street style shots that prove semi-cropped and ankle-grazing denim styles look the most flattering when paired with said boots. And don't worry, you'll have a large denim shopping selection ahead as well. We would never leave you hanging like that.
