How Lauren Conrad Pairs Jeans With Ankle Boots

If I had to choose one article of clothing to wear for the rest of my life, it would be the perfect pair of jeans. While my career doesn’t exactly call for a uniform, I can easily say that a great pair of worn-in jeans has made an appearance at most of my business meetings and cross-town trips between offices. Because of my undying love for denim, I’ve been pretty excited to see the revival of trends I thought I’d never see on the rack again. Blue jeans will never go out of style, even though the lengths and washes might change from season to season. So far in 2017, my closet has gained quite a few pairs, and today I thought I’d share some of my favorites with all of you lovely Who What Wear readers. In this post, I will be showing you which ankle boots complement each pair of jeans, making outfit-planning that much easier.

Keep scrolling to see which combos made the list.

Skinnies + Ankle Boots

The first combination on the list is classic skinny jeans and ankle boots. Since a good pair of skinnies is fairly simple, you have the freedom to get a little edgier with your ankle boots. I suggest going for boots with some embellishment like buckles, texture, or lace-up details. You really can’t go wrong.

Cropped Flares + Ankle Boots

Next up, I’ve picked out an assortment of cropped jeans and ankle boots. Cropped jeans can sometimes give you the illusion of having shorter legs, so my advice is to always pair these pants with a heeled bootie. That way, you aren’t losing any inches and your legs will actually look longer.

Distressed Denim + Ankle Boots

The last combination that I have for you today is distressed denim and flat or low-heeled ankle boots. Since there are so many great jeans out there right now with raw hems and perfectly placed rips and tears, you should let your pants do all the talking. Each pair of pants below has a chic pair of low-to-the-ground ankle boots to complement them. I can’t decide which combo I love more!

Which one of these combinations is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!

Rag and bone skinny jeans. I dress them up and dress them down.

It's hard to say, because I go through so many phases with music. Maybe James Taylor? I don't think I'll ever get tired of him. ​
