Foolproof Jean-and-Boot Combos That Win Every Time

Some things just go together: boots and jeans, Karl and Choupette, Marissa Cooper and Summer Roberts, T-shirts and leather jackets. The latest match made in fashion heaven? L.A. style and PAIGE’s new shoe collection. We absolutely live in the designer’s iconic, long-lasting jeans, and we’re pretty sure we’re going to need every pair of boots in its new footwear launch as well. Looking to capture that L.A.-girl vibe for yourself? We put together five fall-ready jeans-and-boots looks we’ll be relying on constantly for the foreseeable future.

Slit Leather Pants + Heeled Moto Boots

Take it from me: L.A. girls don’t (just) live in denim cutoffs. Slit-leg leather pants feel incredibly fun and forward—an excellent piece to pair with black moto boots for a night out. Tuck in a black slim-fit T-shirt and you’re good to go.

Animal-Print Skinnies + Slouchy Boots

Animal-print jeans and slouchy black boots elicit instant heart-eye emojis. The two classic styles feel fresh for fall, but the combo also provides a chic vibe that’s very mid-'90s Posh-like (always my goal when getting dressed). Pair with a cool oversize coat for the ultimate F/W 18 look.

Classic Blue Jeans + Western-Inspired Boots

In case you hadn’t gotten the memo, take note: Western-inspired touches are huge for fall. If you don’t want to go full-on cowboy, pair brown boots with classic whiskered blue jeans for a look that’s classic Americana. No lasso required.

Velvet Burgundy Skinnies + Jet White Ankle Boots

White shoes have been trending for a few years now, and this season is no different. Pair these boots with contrasting skinnies (like this velvet burgundy pair) for a ’70s vibe. It’s a fun canvas that’s screaming out for a leather jacket and bold crystal-encrusted jewelry. See you on the Eastside for cocktails later?

Stirrup-Accented Black Jeans + Chelsea Boots

Black on black is always a good idea, especially when you’re talking skinny jeans and Chelsea boots. Yes, the no-color color palette has long been the province of NYC girls, but that doesn’t mean L.A. girls can’t adopt the edgy look. These Paige jeans come complete with removable chain-link stirrups that’ll make you feel like even more of a badass than you already are.
