Skinny jeans and ankle boots are undoubtedly closet staples, but the two classic items are surprisingly difficult to wear together. The preferred method of wearing them has moved away from jeans-tucked-into-boots look, but since most skinny jeans don't fit over the tops of a pair of ankle boots like cropped flares do, you can be left with a bit of a sartorial predicament. Not only that, a pair of long bunched-up jeans atop your ankle boots is never a good look. But not to worry—Hailey Baldwin recently wore an outfit that shows how it's done. Her trick for making the skinny jeans–and–ankle boots combo look of-the-moment was by choosing a pair of cropped jeans that perfectly ended at the top of the boots. The jeans' undone and frayed hem helped the pairing to feel even fresher.
