According to denim expert and It girl Alexa Chung, skinny jeans are the number one style to wear in the winter. She said of the classic style in an interview with InStyle.com, "When winter rolls around and you've got a big jumper on, all you want is a lean silhouette down there." We couldn't agree more—bulky outerwear and cozy oversize sweaters look the most flattering with skinnies.
We fully believe that the key to making skinny jeans reach their full potential in the winter is the shoes you pair with them. Ankle boots can be tricky with slim jeans (to tuck or not to tuck?), so we looked outside the box to find 10 pairs of cozy winter-appropriate boots (including ankle styles), sneakers, and flats to wear with your favorite skinny jeans. Keep scrolling to shop the shoes that will make your skinny jeans look incredibly stylish this winter (along with specific pairs of jeans to wear with them, if you're so inclined).
