The Most Flattering Jeans to Wear With Flats, From Lauren Conrad


Steve Erle/Kohl’s

If I were to describe my daily uniform, it would almost always include a comfortable pair of jeans and some sort of flat shoes. Of course, I can’t resist an opportunity to dress up, especially with the holidays coming up. Being a new mama may require a more relaxed wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean that I have to sacrifice my personal style. Since I have my favorite pairs of jeans on rotation these days, I thought it would be fitting to contribute a column all about them. Today I’m sharing the most flattering jeans to wear with flats—two staples that I think every girl can benefit from having in her closet. Below I’ve chosen three of my go-to jean silhouettes of the moment, plus three flat shoe styles that have proven to be evergreen. Keep scrolling to see what combinations I’ve picked out for you.

Skinnies + Ballet Flats

This combination is at the top of the list for a reason. You can almost always find me in a worn-in pair of skinny jeans and ballet flats. Lately, I’ve been going for a more distressed denim look, but you can never go wrong with a more classic wash. Just add a fun pair of ballet flats like this pair from my LC Lauren Conrad collection and you’re good to go.

Step-Hem Jeans + Mules

This denim style adds a touch of interest without going overboard, in my opinion. Step-hem jeans are the perfect complement to a comfy and cute pair of mules without getting too trendy. I can see both of these styles lasting well throughout the next year.

Cropped Flares + Loafers

Last but not least, we have the crop denim flare–and-loafer combination. Cropped flares are a more modern take on boot-cut jeans that show just enough ankle. This is the perfect opportunity to show off some pretty shoes like the loafers I chose below.

Available in size 5.

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