The Shoe Style Fashion Girls Wear With Jeans to Take a Break From Ankle Boots

Ankle boots are an easy pairing with jeans of all styles, but come warmer months there are plenty of reasons to switch it up with more summery stylings. Without going full-on flip-flop when it comes to footwear, you can add some spring to your step with fashion-forward flats. One style in particular—a strappy take that's a marriage between a ballet flat and Mary Janes—adds the right touch of cool casualness without compromising on polish.

Landing at LAX, Kate Bosworth demonstrated this jeans and flats combo, wearing cropped denim in a dark wash paired with the shoe hybrid. Worn with a crisp white long-sleeve blouse adorned with ruffles and delicate eyelets and a black leather Christopher Kane bag decorated in stone charms, the jeans and flats perfectly balanced the ensemble's frillier sensibilities.
